Personally, I could take or leave Castle Danger at this point. It plays well enough, but fails to overly excite me. The level of complexity is based and deeply rooted to a player’s opponent, and I haven’t played with many people who have challenged me. I’m not bragging, mind you, but I think most of my lack of having strong feelings for or against the game is due to not feeling challenged. Perhaps my feelings towards Castle Danger will shift in the future, but until then I’ll be keeping the game because my little geeks enjoy playing it. For me, that’s often times enough to make room for a game on my shelves. And who knows? Perhaps my little geeks will one day be better at the game than me and I’ll finally have a challenging adversary. Which is exactly what I hope to get.

If you are looking for alternatives to Chess or Checkers, or simply looking for a new abstract game to play with two players, do take a look at Castle Danger.

You get the full game from The Game Crafter, as shown (minus the box though).

*The game only weighs 7oz. So I could slice the board in half (tape them together with clear tape), and ship First class Mail (in the US or Internationally) for much cheaper. This would obviously be without the protection of a box.

Shipping: $11

Start Bid: $5

That tickles
mbmbmbmbmb
I was born and raised in the small town of Castle Dale, Utah. I now live in Stansbury Park, but my family still resides in Castle Dale. The area of Carbon and Emery Counties is commonly known as Castle Valley, named for the massive rock formations located in the area, including those in the San Rafael Swell. Castle Valley is made up of small coal mining communities. Underground mining is dangerous. Everyone there knows it and all have been reminded of it through the years. Mine disasters are dreaded, but all realize that the possibility exists.

Castle Danger is an interesting abstract which I've had my eye on for a while, but as it's only available straight from the (US) publisher, I hadn't prioritized it so far... my wife ordered it for me, and it's been played a couple of times already.

Quite a different abstract, as each turn, you have many actions - 12, 15 or 18 actions seem to not be unusual - so you get to do quite a lot before it's the other guy's turn. My impression so far is that the game goes through definite phases... first, a slow building up of resources, then starting to attack the opponent's resources (wizards which give actions, cannons which give attack possibilities and builders which allow building defensive walls), until one player manages to get enough of an advantage to actually go for the king. Of course, careless play can result in the king getting shot much earlier - but then, that is often the case in abstracts; that one careless move can lose you the game.

Neat little two player game that is not yet ranked. I haven't had a chance to play it enough times to give a rating, but I'm really liking this one so far!

Castle Danger is a 2-player, turn-based strategy game. Each turn, a player gets to add another piece to his or her side of the board, move pieces, and shoot cannonballs at the opponent. Who will hit the other's King first?

Castle Danger is a light, yet satisfying fantasy war game that typically finishes in less than an hour. Some think it's a bit abstract or don't like the small board, but I disagree. The wizard war theme is easy to get into, and the small field is important for building tension. It's a crying shame that more people haven't played this game.
