"Simple concept, great fun"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Citadels is incredibly simple to pick up, but from the first couple of games I can see some subtle tactics coming into play once people are up to speed. Marked it as “good” rather than “excellent” as I'm not 100% sure what the longevity of the game will be.

Summary explains it all.

"Great Strategy Card Game"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

One of my favourites – can be played by up to 9 people.


Includes Citadels: Dark City Expansion.

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 11 brand new expansion cards by the original game designer. These cards have never been published in any previous editions, and add a whole new level of diversity to CITADELS.

Contents: 66 district cards, 9 character cards, 10 new expansion cards, 1 crown counter, 45 gold coins, 16 score counters, 18 charater counters. All in a box 26×20×4cm.

Optional extra expansion pack also available.
