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.

A promo that is a coaster. The promo allows a knight or swordsman to hit flying monsters. Neat promo that can come handy in a pinch.
