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
If you'd like a "gentle" introduction to these wonderful games, I'd suggest Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride or Carcassonne.
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.
Players acquire victory points as they build their estate, and ultimately the player with the most victory points wins the game.

Great game mechanics, but the board is overly decorated and makes it distracting and hard to play. I'd pay more for better quality pieces. SUPER fun to play though!Published 16 days ago by strawberrygurl
