Arkadia Board Game


Drake says: "Arkadia is a game about building the city and castle of Arkadia. Players use builders, cards, workers and neutral workers to build houses in Arkadia. Houses are built with the seal of one of 4 families; but seals are subject to changing values. The growing castle (every time a house is built, players also build on the castle) has the 4 seals on it as well, which decides the value of each seal. The castle is also the games timer: once the second layer is built, the last round starts. The player with the most victory points wins."


John says: "Arkadia is a fairly simple game to teach with good strategic elements and a bit of luck. With elements similar to the tile-placement in Acquire, the player interaction is excellent and the replay value will make this one a favorite."


Rudiger Dorn


In a remote land there lies a region with undulating hills and fertile valleys. Widely-traveled settlers have laid the foundation stone for the city of Arkadia. In addition to several other buildings, they want to construct a magnificent castle on a hill. Four wealthy families -- the cloth merchants, the spice merchants, the carpenters and the silversmiths -- want to enhance prestige and augment their influence. For this reason, they compete for the major contribution to the castle's construction. Players act as architects. The four families commission them to plan and realize the build-up of the town and the castle.
