It can be quite easy To forget, but the makers have left little prompts on the game board and player mats to help remind you.
Castles of Burgundy is a very tactical game, and requires a previously planned game strategy to be successful. It is very rewarding to complete sections and gain large point boosts.
You win the game by scoring points, which can be earned in numbers ways. So there are many tactics to use to win.
It's a very enjoyable game, but does take a while to understand the rules.
There's lots of things you can do to make the best of the tiles you have (it also pays off keeping an eye on what other people are doing, especially with the sections they are trying to complete). The first time we played it there were 3 of us and it took a few hours from setting up.
We have just played with 2 of us on a Sunday afternoon and ended up doing best of 3 as the results were so close.
The graphics are nice and the whole thing feels well made especially for <£20. My only complaint would be the storage (there's not enough compartments; we've stored each type of tile in little plastic bags) and the pieces are quite small so it's a little fiddly.
Despite these points it's fast becoming one of my favourite board games and is a great price compared to some.
When you first sit down to learn it, it seems like there are a thousand rules and point systems to memorise but it’s actually a fairly simple game once you get used to it. I’d recommend watching one of the many instructional videos on YouTube before diving straight into the manual
I love the fact that it plays equally well as a 2 player as it does for 3 or 4 players.
And ... it's cheap compared to others. Definitely recommend this to those who play games like Catan or Stoneage.
