Product Description

Castle Panic® is a cooperative tower defense board game for 1 to 6 players, ages 10 and up. The co-op element makes Castle Panic a great family game and the perfect kick-off for your weekly game night. You must work together to defend your Castle, in the center of the board, from Monsters that attack out of the forest, at the edges of the board. Trade cards, hit and slay Monsters, and plan strategies together to keep your Castle towers intact. The players either win or lose together, but only the player with the most victory points is declared the Master Slayer. Players must balance the survival of the group with their own desire to win.

Great cooperative game to play with friends or family.
Kim Ammons
It is a cooperative game, all players work together to defeat the monsters, so everyone wins, or everyone loses, together.
Jerry K. Smith
A fun and easy to learn game that you play against the game itself, not each other.

Fantastic family game!
It's a fun, lighthearted game that doesn't involve a lot of set up, let's you work together, and involves slaying crazed monsters - what's not to love.

We really like co-operative games in our family and with Castle Panic we never feel like one person is directing the whole effort with the others just going along. Everyone is in it together and can really make their own choices. And it's even great fun when we lose.

And even though the game says ages 10+, everyone down to our 6 year old loves it.
Games play out in under an hour, and turns go quickly so no one sits around waiting. Time flies by when you're defending from incessant monster attacks.

(Setting: a demo at a game store with designer Justin De Witt)

Clues you've got an exciting game: 1. Your oldest and "too-cool" daughter runs mid-game to you and whispers in your ear: "Mom, we HAVE to have this game for my slumber party Friday night!"; 2: Your middle child, who is typically quiet, is a chatterbox the whole time, is cracking game jokes with the designer, and is asking questions about the game design and extraordinary art; and 3: Your 7-year-old boy , who usually can't stay seated for very long, is listening intently to the rules and is biting his nails trying to figure out how he's going to beat those BAD monsters coming out of the forest and is NOT willing to trade that Barbarian card for anything!

This game was so fun because, unlike most other games in which players compete against each other, we had to work together as a family to beat the monsters coming out of the forest. We won game one (Mom was the Master Slayer with the most monsters killed); the monsters won game two.

The "rule" book has clear explanations, big, beautiful pictures, and is very organized. This game is going to be a hit!

Plenty of people have done an admirable job of explaining the games in their reviews, so this is instead an attempt at a comparison between a number of games, the pros and cons of each and which may suit different people best. The games in question are: Carcassonne, Settlers of Catan, Castle Panic, Smallworld, and Forbidden Island.

We have had Settlers of Catan and Carcassonne (with a number of expansion packs) for quite a few years now, and only recently added the other games above. We usually either play just as two adults, or with our two older children (age 9 and 8), and so our conclusions are based on how these games work in those settings. So here's what we've found:

Settlers of Catan
We got this around the same time as Carcassonne and initially just didn't latch onto it. Partly it's that it's supposed to be 3 players or more, and we often play as just two of us. Once we found online some instructions for playing as 2 players it came out more often, and as time's gone by it's become fairly 50-50 whether we play Settlers or Carcassonne on a quiet night in. The choice will usually depend on how much we want to think. With Settlers, you're always planning and calculating; with Carcassonne, you're taking it a card at a time.

Who should get it: Settlers is well-known as one of the great modern games. I'm not as sold on it as some people, and it takes quite a while to learn and feel comfortable with, but once you get the hang of it, it is an entertaining and enjoyable addition to a games collection. There are several 2-player rule variations out there if you need them and they work well (we found one that worked for us and we've stuck to it). But this isn't a game for kids; I would suspect not until they're 16 or so.

Castle Panic is advertised as a relatively light cooperative "tower defense" game, and it fits the bill perfectly. Games can be played with 1-6 people, each game lasts around an hour, and it is very quick and easy to pick up. After opening the box and reading the directions, people can begin playing in 10 or 15 minutes.Don't let the simple rules fool you though, the game is very intense and enjoyable!

The game has lived up to my expectations as a great way to spend time with friends and family; I have been playing with my wife and some friends avidly since the game arrived a few days ago.

The game mechanics are very balanced. I have only lost once out of the seven times I played (it was a solo game), but each victory has been VERY close, with only one or two towers remaining. Another great part of the game is that it is very customizable; rules can be changed here and there to make it easier or harder. For example, you can choose to start the game with no tower walls, draw more monsters each turn, etc.

I really like the cooperative aspect of the game, which seems to be a rarity in the gaming world. Although there is an optional competitive element to the game, where the player with the most monster kills is crowned the "Master Slayer," the main goal of the game is survive, and you either do it through team work, or you all perish together. As the game progresses, and you lose some walls and towers to approaching trolls, goblins, orcs, and special "boss monsters," the action gets very intense. With a hoard of monsters surrounding your castle, the tension of what will happen next becomes palpable.

If you are looking for a unique, light, fun way to spend time with friends and family, don't hesitate, try out Castle Panic!
