In Citadels, you are a medieval ruler trying to complete your city before your opponents can build theirs! Expand you city by adding new districts, but be sure to invest wisely. Some districts are more valuable than others, but cost more gold to build.
There is more to ruling a city than gold, however. Lords, ladies, and other nobility all have a role to play. The game changes each turn as each player secretly chooses a new role - the Assassin, Thief, Magician, King, Bishop, Merchant, Architect, or Warlord - and the power that comes with it.
This edition of Citadels includes the Dark City expansion. This exciting addition to the game features 14 new district cards and a premium wood "King" marker.
CG says: Great game in a little package. More suited to older kids, players select characters to help build their districts. But certain characters disrupt other players by making them miss a turn, stealing their gold or taking their building cards. So players need to think what other players are doing as well as bluffing to avoid being targetted. Games can be shortened by reducing the number of buildings players need to build in their districts. The Dark City expansion,included in the game, adds more variety to the game.
