The Castles of Burgundy
Drake says: "15th century princes from the Loire Valley devote their efforts to strategic trading and building in order to bring their estates to prosperity and prominence. Over the course of 5 rounds, collect the most points by trading, live stock farming, city building and scientific research to win!"

John says: The Castles of Burgundy is a solid new game from Stefan Feld. The game features a deep level of strategy yet is accessible to new players. There's some dice usage in the game, yet the ability to influence them reduces much of the luck factor.


Stefan Feld


The game is set in the Burgundy region of High Medieval France. Each player takes on the role of an aristocrat, originally controlling a small princedom. While playing they aim to build settlements and powerful castles, practice trade along the river, exploit silver mines, and use the knowledge of travellers.
The game is about placing settlement tiles into the princedom. Every tile has a function that starts when the tile is placed. The princedom itself consists of several regions, each of which demands its own settlement tile.
The core game mechanism involves two dice. The pips show the kind of action the players are allowed to do (example: roll a 2 and a 5: using the 2 the player buys a watch tower and places it on a 5 city tile which triggers the function of the tower with additional advantages).
It is also possible to influence the dice, so the player is not completely subject to luck.
