Turns the Tar card into a Barbarian once a game. As a bookmark, it's an interesting way to promote reading with the kiddies.

It is in essence a "Kill one monster" if anyone has the tar card.

I added this novelty bookmark to my Castle Panic collection. A little pricey, but very unique.

Great idea to mix off-game promos with an ingame effect.
Unfortunately it will never be used (to keep it safe)... but I truly love the idea.

Castle Panic: The Wizard's Tower is the first expansion for Castle Panic.

The Wizard's Tower adds to the game without detracting anything. That is important for a good expansion.

And that is exactly what The Wizard's Tower is - a very good expansion.

This expansion brings new, more powerful, monsters to the mix. It also adds Mega Boss Monsters. These are monsters that bend the rules a little and make the game more difficult.

The players get a second deck of cards to aid them in the fight. These are Wizard Cards, or spells, that bring new powers to the players. These cards are powerful and greatly help the players in the defense of the castle.

What makes this expansion so good is that the game remains perfectly balanced with the addition of the new monsters and Wizard Cards. The power curve has not been thrown off in any way. That is a true testament to the beauty of the design of this game.

I would say that not only it this expansion fantastic, it is the best way to play the game.

Adding The Wizard's Tower does change the score a bit


Overall Playability = 7.4

Design = 8
Strategy = 7
Luck = 7
Artwork & Components = 7
Use of Mechanics = 8
Time of Play = 7
Fun = 8
Innovation = 6
Analysis Paralysis = 8
Theme = 8


------------------------------------------------------


Castle Panic: Any Color Hero Promo is a single card expansion.

It is exactly as the name says. It is a Hero that can be used in any color arc.

Since the game runs in sets of 3's, I use 3 of these in the game. Basically, all the other fighter type cards are in sets of 3, so I think this should be too.


------------------------------------------------------


Castle Panic: Crossbow promo is another single "card" expansion. Except it is on a coaster.

The Crossbow adds a decent single-use power to the players, but it is done is a silly manner - on a coaster.

Giving one to each player prior to game start is a nice addition.


------------------------------------------------------


Castle Panic: Feather Promo is another single "card" expansion. Except it is on a bookmark.

The Feather adds a decent single-use power to the players, but it is done is a silly manner - on a bookmark.

Giving one to each player prior to game start is a nice addition.

Because you just need some feathers to add to the tar to instantly slay a monster. (Just like in real life... right?)

A very unnecessary "promo" card that does very little for the actual game. Can't say I'll ever play a game with this involved.

It's a novelty, and not that great of one, at the most.

It's a very powerful card - perhaps too powerful? It's like the tar suddenly becomes a barbarian and slays a monster with one hit. I'm not really fond of the decision to make it a bookmark instead of an actual card, but honestly it isn't a big deal. I doubt I want to play with it all the time, but I guess it's okay from time to time if I want to add a (very) little something extra to the game.

This clumsy-sized bookmark-shaped card lets you feather enemies which have already been hit with the tar card. I'm not sure if I'll ever use this thing with the base game because there's no need for extra power there. I may try it out with The Wizard's Tower expansion.
