Description Edit | History

Castle Danger is a 2-player, turn-based, full-information, strategy game. It is played on a rectangular board, divided into squares -- 9 columns by 7 rows. The middle column on the board is an impassible river, leaving each player with a 4x7 section of the board on which to control their pieces.

Six (6) different types of pieces are used in the game: a single King per player (must be protected), Wizards (gives the player more moves to use each turn), Builders (add/remove Walls from the board), Cannons (shoot cannonballs at opponent's pieces), Walls (intercept cannonballs -- used to give protection to other pieces), and Fire (placed on the board wherever a cannonball lands).

If a player's "portal" square (the middle square in their outside column) is open at the start of the turn, the player can add a new piece on that square.

The first player to hit their opponent's King with a cannonball is the winner.

The game was first published as a 2-player computer game, which can be played against an opponent over the Internet.

Now there is also a tabletop version of the game available, which includes rules for a hidden-information variant.

This is the August 2008 Update to the rules booklet that shipped with the tabletop version of the game (before it went OoP). The updates are a couple of rule changes intended to dampen the first player advantage. Owners of the game are encouraged to download and play the game using these updated rules. From the booklet ... 2008 Update Changes: Removed special exception moves reduction on first player's first turn. Added "Material Advantage Cost" rule when adding a piece.
