    Castles of Mad King Ludwig Board Game

    Rating: 10Reviewed By: empryme02/11/2015
    Summary ReviewThe Castles of Mad King Ludwig offers a fun investment in board games: wonderfully designed pieces, easy game play, immense replayability, and accessible to most groups in terms of number of players. In addition, it sparks just the right amount of interest in history to look into the infamous Mad King of Bavaria.
    Detailed ReviewThe Castles of Mad King Ludwig sets the players up as builders tasked with constructing beauitful castles for the eccentric Bavarian king's shifting whims. In the end, whoever has earned the most victory points wins.

    Each turn, one of the players will populate the room board with both currently available rooms as well as new rooms to be drawn as necessary. In addition, the Master Builder will also decide upon the prices of each of the rooms, based upon their tactical reasoning. Players will either pass their turn (and collect 5000 Marks) or buy and build one of the rooms on the board. Rooms purchased have to be placed immediately and legally, and then score points for the room including any modifiers specified by the room. The other major factor is that when all of the doors of a room connect to other rooms' doors, then the room is completed and additional effects will take place based on the room type (Recreational, Outdoor, Corridor, Basement, Living Room, Sleeping, Utility, or Food).

    The game pieces are wonderfully designed to fit almost any configuration that may arrise; with the exception of the circular rooms. Each room is also beautifully depicted as well; marvelous little details like beds, carpets, and even chairs for the king to enjoy his leisure time.

    Because of the total number of cards is greater than the number required for even a four player game, there is unnumerable amount of replay value that it will be difficult to bore on this game anytime soon. Likewise, the strategy and tactics shift dramatically based on the number of players; there is even a variant rule for single player games!

    The only major criticism to levy is the space and box of the game. Even with all of the pieces pre-punched, there is a tremendous amount of space in the box. As much sa it would be a welcoming feature, there aren't any expensions available to fill that space; so it is just a waste.
