A Castle for All Seasons

RGG383 A Castle for All Seasons Game by Rio Grande Games

Amidst craggy mountains, the first silhouettes of a monumental castle arise. A line of traders twists its way to the gate; and the hustle and bustle attracts many people in the hope of getting wages and victuals. The area is crammed with market booths, the magnificent castle is being enlarged around them.

Each player is a builder who, round for round, is able to use different character cards tactically. The constructing of this castle always culminates in an exciting final scoring. The player to produce the most victory points in the end deserves the protection of the castle and wins the game.

  • Count me in as another fan of Castle for All Seasons. I bought the game based on a read of the rules and noticing the nifty role mechanic. But after playing a few times, I'm really liking the choose your scoring while playing aspect - very fun and feels very unique. This game physically *looks* like Pillars (a game which I really don't enjoy) and has unfortunately a very similar theme. But in fact, plays much different and much faster. I still would like to explore this one alot more.
  • Worker placement game? Yeah, been there done that.Role selection game? Yeah, been there done that.But it is the combination of these tried and true elements that makes A Castle for All Seasons such a wonderful game! In terms of role selection, it's my favourite game of the genre, light years ahead of Citadels and Puerto Rico. In terms of worker placement, it pounds Stone Age back into the stone age. The level of player interaction is quite high, and the luck level is non-existent (unless you're playing the winter version of the game). Due to the simultaneous role selection, I believe it is impossible for anyone to master the game, and rest assured, no matter how many times you play it, you WILL make mistakes! It plays very differently between two, three and four players, but it also plays well with any number of players. One of the most graphically beautiful boardgame I've ever played.
  • 2-4 players, best with 4, 60 minutes.Purchased at Zuiderspel '17. Played twice, once with the gaming group and once with my son. The game is fine and looks very good, but due to the fierce competition in my collection will not get a lot of playtime, so willing to trade this one away.

    Year ago I would have liked it a lot, now it left strange feeling. Should play again, as I didn't really get into the groove there.
