Based on BGG Entry:Don Quixote
Notes: When we last heard from this developer, Kris Wolff (BGG User:kristopherjwolff), he brought us the Android version of the abstract game RED. Now back on the Android platform with the official version of the Reinhard Staupe game, Don Quixote. Highlights the original Oliver Freudenreich artwork, and includes an unlockable expansions
From the app description:
The official Android version of the boardgame by Reinhard Staupe!
The noble Don Quixote imagines his small principality: Knights protect its castles and borders; roads connect windmills and churches. Not all will connect in a logical way but that doesn't matter to him. He can still dream...
You have 22 tiles to place in your principality. Like Carcassonne and other path-building tile-laying games, Don Quixote requires timely decisions and risk-taking with a twist: instead of choosing where to place your next tile, the game chooses the location and you choose which tile to place there! Connect your principality's roads to protect its castles and borders with knights, and link your churches and windmills to score points.
