A detailed strategy game for dedicated gamers set in medieval France.
15th Century princes devote time and effort to strategically trading and building their prosperity and their estates.
A Complex Strategy Game that Challenges Players to Think Ahead and Plan Big
A game of both subtle and overt strategy, wit and patience, The Castles of Burgundy sparks the imagination with its various animals, land, building and ship tiles, as well as the give and take between the two game boards. Intricate play details promote cause and effect, attention to detail, mathematical calculations and patience. Since the game is played over five rounds, players must develop a strategy and keep the game's objectives clear in their minds over a lengthy time period. Players compete against one another, but also against themselves, as they test strategies that could help them amass their assets more quickly than their opponents.
Players Manage Assets and Sharpen Their Business Skills
The Castles of Burgundy is for players who prefer games of strategy to those of luck. This is a game with historical perspective with the inspiring theme of France during medieval times. Players must be alert and ready to think clearly across two game boards, intricate details and multiple areas at once.
What's In The Box?
164 six-sided tiles, 42 goods tiles, 20 Silverlings (game's currency), 30 worker tiles, 12 bonus tiles, 4 victory tiles, 8 playing pieces, 9 dice, 1 game board, 6 player boards, 1 set of instructions
That way, even though dice are random, you can mitigate the randomness.
It's one of the most fun games I've played in a long time and it definitely holds its own against some of the very superior European strategy games.
If you'd like a "gentle" introduction to these wonderful games, I'd suggest Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride or Carcassonne.
The Castles of Burgundy is an excellent game! It is very well designed and highly strategic. Each player has his/her own board which represents his/her kingdom/castle/domain. Read morePublished 6 days ago by Steve Ramage
Very cool Euro. I never played a Feld design until a couple months ago and since then I've played 3 (In the Year of the Dragon, Macao, and this one) and they've all been winners,... Read morePublished 7 days ago by Tony
Best game on the market. Very high replay. Challenging play and a lot of variation without the need for "tournament" play.Published 11 days ago by Phillip Todd Loe
This is one of the rare games where I not only tolerate but actually appreciate the dice-rolling mechanic. Read morePublished 1 month ago by D. Pettitt
