Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig is published by Stonemaier Games as part of a collaboration with Bezier Games.

The king demands a castle! You are a world-renowned master builder who has been asked by the Mad King Ludwig to help design his castles. Projects of such significance require the expertise of more than one person, so for each assignment you are paired with another master builder to execute your grandiose plans. Will your planning and partnership skills be enough to design the most impressive castles in the world?

Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig is a competitive tile-drafting game in which each tile is a room in a castle. You work together with the player on your left to design one castle, and with the player on your right on another castle. On each turn you select two tiles from your hand, reveal them, then work with your partners to place them.

At the end of the game, each castle is scored. Your personal final score is the lower of the scores of the two castles you helped design, and the player with the highest final score wins the game. To win, you have to share your attention and your devotion between two castles.

User Ratings & Reviews

  • + Love the collaboration of the the game - it's fun to build together + tiles work well together+ great player aid - very clear - tiles too small - wish there were some variant ways for setups to increase replayability
  • Better at high player counts, Similar to 7 Wonders, funny experiences as castle grows, scoring is difficult to explain
  • September 2019 $23.36
  • More thematically engaging than Cities, but I'm still not sold on the almost-co-op mechanism.

#Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig The text on the tiles should be bigger and easier to read-even with prescription glasses it can be difficult.

 

How about the 'fine print' on the cards/tiles? I enjoy #Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig, but it's hard to read the small print even with glasses on.  It's even harder trying to teach/play the game with everyone in the same 'glasses are a must' group.

#Between Two Cities - I really like the game, but after picking up #Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig I didn't feel like I needed both in my collection, so I gave the former to a friend.

I hear ya. I waited until the last minute and since I had wife approval I bought it. Then they added Between Two Castles Of Mad King Ludwig which is another game I want, but I had to hold off. Too much money going out after all the Raiders stuff and then Scythe. I also have Wingspan coming next week.

I'm starting to feel like a Stonemaier fanboy.
