One of my most played games, great fun, simple to learn and one you can just sit with friends and have a laugh. The presentation is top notch, the game has life, we are thinking of running a campaign around the game.

Miniatures can be annoying, some come bent but remould them by leaving in Hot water for a min then remove and carefully bend to shape, place in cold water and they set.

Just a lovely game

Fast, easy, fun, and beautiful to look at.
You can play it with your family (light-hearted and easy enough for up to 4 players), you can play it with your friends (it can easily become a "take this!" roughouse)or you can play it with your spouse because it plays wonderfully with 2 players.
A rare example of easy and elegant mechanics that drive a game that is more than the sum of its parts.
Highlights: absolutely beautiful art throughout the components (minis, board, cards, counters); tight and tense games within an hour; 8 scenario boards that expand the game in 8 different directions.
AND the most important thing: it's FUN.

I think this game is a blast! Have played two and four player games and I have enjoyed every one. The argument over "different stats" for each character is way overdrawn. With 18 characters on the board, individual stats would bog the game down terribly. The unique special skill of each character is just enough to give flavor and difference to play.

A surprisingly fun game that reminds me of Dungeon Twister. We've found it's a great game for the casual folks because it's pretty, easy to learn and quick to get through. My one complaint is that more time went into the art design than fine-tuning the rules. We've had to make a couple of tweaks to get the game moving fairly and smoothly.

This reminds me of those good old fashioned games like Heroquest. It is not particuarly deep, but there is some strategy and planning involved, great theme, and loads of fun. Recommended.

From GenCon 2010, early release.

Highly replayable and entertaining game of action management, luck, backstabbing and sometimes, hiding and hoping that you get out with some treasure intact. VERY well themed!

This game is about managing your actions and NOT about variable stats on characters. It is a wonderful, lighter tactical action management and back-stabbing game. Beautiful to play as well as look at.

OMG! I cannot believe how much FUN this game is! It's a very lightweight game, fast playing and perfect for a fun games night. It's not a dungeon crawler, it's not a skirmish game, it's not (exactly) an Euro worker placement game. It's such a pity this game is so criminally underrated, all because SOME people can't get over the fact that the stats for the characters are all the same, instead of focusing on the gameplay. Plus you get a campaign to play through, or just play each scenario as you like.

Comments:
This game is exactly what I wanted it to be. It has everything I have ever dreamed about in a game. Its got fighting, lots of fighting. Its got thievery. Its got awesome minis, its got variable scenarios, and plenty of room for possible expansions. The only drawback to the game is that it only plays up to four. Need more gangs, more city boards, and more scenarios in the first expansion please.

Updated Comments:
I still do love this game, but some of the shine has warn off. Nothing against the game itself, its just that Arcadia Quest seems to do everything this game does, but better. Limit board, lots of player interaction, etc. But Arcadia Quest also has character development and stats that make development of characters and synergies out of your setup. And a campaign mode.
I did get the the first expansion which added more boards, and a few different mercenaries but I was hoping for even more gangs. Like I said I still love C:CoT but, but not sure if this even necessary on my shelf any longer.

Reviews:
Read an impassioned argument against individual character stats for the game that I wrote.
Read a deatiled review of the scenarios you can find in the base game that I wrote.

5/12- status: Minis primed.

Wow I really liked this. Reminds a bit of Drakon, at first. Grab treasure and screw your neighbor. Try and mess up their plans.

Only this has *slightly* more complication. And I mean that in a good way. And I like that there aren't individualized stats. That would be too much.

Need to remember you don't cash out on the purse and other items unless you *leave* with it. Holding a card that lets you walk through another player is a really good thing to have when all other exits are blocked and there is a player in the way of the one exit you can get to.

Very cool game. This could become a 10 very quickly.

A rather quick and really easy to learn. There isn't too many options to do in game, the system is really simple. Simplifying usually makes the game more chaotic and it's also the case with this game.

I don't consider this game bad at all. No great tactics are involved, but in contrary to many other FFG's older games, this is easy to play and plays quite fast also. Really euro-gameish.

A very fun and exciting game with some of the best art and miniatures I've ever seen. I only hope they come out with an expansion with even more characters, scenarios and perhaps some more advanced rules as well. Its a game that would lend itself to magical items, spells, talents, leveling, ect. I also wouldn't mind a second set of the thief cards with more variable stat lines, and perhaps a couple of unique abilities each.

This game is intense, clever, fun, and challenging. The artwork and minis are beautiful. I think the different scenarios change the game enough that you can't always use the same strategy. The main complaint for this game from others is that the character cards all have the same stats, but I don't really see the problem with that.

Based on first impressions after one play, this was surprisingly good. The ruleset is simple, and the play is more tactical than strategic. The dice rolls mean that there is some luck involved but it usually created some fun or tense moments. The board artwork is gorgeous and the different abilities of each team member are interesting. My first play was with 2 players and I thought the board would be too big and open, and that we would be able to easily avoid each other. That wasn't the case at all, there were enough opportunities for us to block and mess with each other, and opportunities for clever or surprising plays too. Both of us felt that it would be even more fun with more players though. I'm definitely going to be upgrading to the pre-painted minis, and I'll probably upgrade the action tokens to glass beads in each team colour.

Only one play so far. At this point, I would not turn down a game, hence my rating of 8. I think a significant part of the attraction for me is the look of the game. The miniature figures are wonderfully detailed and delightfully dark and different too, probably as close I will ever be able to get to a game with the atmosphere of Mordheim. I am definitely going to paint the figures.

Uwielbiam Cadwallon, klimat złodziejskiego miasta, konfrontacje gangów i obrabianie domów tuż pod nosem strażników! Jeśli zatem szukaliście gry z przepięknym figurkami (nie znam wiele gier mogącymi z Cadwallonem w tej materii konkurować. Może najwyżej Descent i Mice and Mystic…?), dodatkowo nastawionej mocno na rywalizację i całą masę negatywnej interakcji - powinniście poważnie rozważyć zakup. Aż dziw, że tak świetna gra spotkała się z raczej obojętnym przyjęciem. Niemniej, należy zaznaczyć, że pomimo oszałamiającego wykonania, Cadwallon nie jest planszówką dla wszystkich. Wymaga bowiem sporej ilości walk, wredności, napadania się nawzajem i podstawiania haka przy próbach ucieczki z miasta – może zatem nie spodobać się graczom, którzy średnio radzą sobie z przegraną, byciem oszukanym czy w ogóle nie mają do planszówek dystansu i potem przeżywają wszystkie zdrady współgraczy przez lata. Może także nastarczyć problemów ludziom niezaznajomionym z językiem angielskim. Bardzo dużo tekstu do czytania, a nie bardzo możemy korzystać z pomocy współgraczy, bowiem ujawnimy wtedy nasze plany. Złodzieje zaś winni czaić się w ukryciu... Po kilkunastu rozgrywkach mogę także ponarzekać trochę na solidność planszy, ale za to figurki po potraktowaniu gorąca wodą, pomalowaniu i polakierowaniu, jak również zakoszulkowane karty - wytrzymały już naprawdę wiele niebezpiecznych przygód.

Crazy underrated game that should be an AT classic. A simplistic rule set coupled with a variety of missions help keep things interesting. A very mean game where you're trying to get in and get out with the most money. This is in the same class as Nexus Ops, Betrayal at House on the Hill, Monsters Menance America...classic Ameritrash. It's not over complicated with ten convoluted subsystems each turn. Just good ol' fashion, chucking dice and being mean.

As I played Rackham's Confrontation (2nd and 3rd edition) quite a lot and have fond memories of this time, I have a soft spot for everything set on Aarklash - even if it's just within the city walls of Cadwallon.
The game looks beautiful and is easy to learn and fast to play.
Don't expect a lot of depth and complexity, because this is not what this game is about.
It's a fun little race for treasure, with some possibilities to hinder (and annoy) the other thieves on the board.
The idea to include different scenarios each with their own specific rules is nice.

With a couple of games under my belt, I really like CCOT because of its replayability (missions), its expandability and its simple, streamlined gameplay. The game is very interactive, up to the point where it can become a bit confrontational as one opponent after the other robs your gang of its treasures. But this mainly encourages you to score your treasures as soon as you are able. Despite the dice rolling, clever play (i.e. assessing risk/reward ratios and making the most of your action points) mostly does not go unrewarded. Maybe it is not the best game for four players, because of its increased chaos. Just do not approach this game as an old school atmospheric RPG-like adventure game, as it really is a point allocation, push-your-luck game with atmospheric artwork. Personally, I like it for that.

Almost a great game, but it just misses the mark somehow. Overall it is simpler than it should have been. We play with "hidden" treasures, and that adds some fun. The "Zombie" schenerio isn't very good though.
