Publisher Comments:

The forest is filled with all sorts of Monsters. They watched and waited as you built your Castle and trained your soldiers, but now they've gathered their army and are marching out of the woods. Can you work with your friends to defend your Castle against the horde, or will the Monsters tear down your Walls and destroy the precious Castle Towers? You will all win or lose together, but in the end only one player will be declared the Master Slayer!

Castle Panic is a unique, cooperative strategy game for 1 to 6 players ages 10 and up.

Players must work together to defend their castle, in the center of the board, from monsters that attack out of the forest, at the edges of the board. Players trade cards, hit and slay monsters, and plan strategies together to keep their castle towers intact. The players either win or lose together, but only the player with the most victory points is declared the Master Slayer.

Players must balance the survival of the group with their own desire to win.

Game includes:

  • Gameboard
  • Rulebook
  • 49 Castle Cards
  • 49 Monster Tokens
  • 6 Walls
  • 6 Towers
  • 1 Tar Token
  • 2 Fortify Tokens
  • 5 Order of Play Cards
  • 12 Plastic Stands
  • 1 Die

Number of players: 1-6
Ages: 10 and up

Even though you'll find that you lose this game a lot, this is one of my favorite games and a great one for families. It's a cooperative game, so everyone plays together in an "all for one, one for all" mode.

You start by setting up an actual castle in the middle of the board made up of six towers surrounded by six walls. The players are all occupants of the castle and spend the rest of the game trying to fight off an army of monsters that are all coming out of the surrounding forest to storm the castle. Depending on how close they are to the castle, players play different cards - either an archer, knight or swordsman - to try and defeat the monsters before they break through a wall and start to destroy the towers. If you can get through all the monsters with at least one tower left standing, you win!

Along the way, in addition to the monsters that join the fight on each turn, they may throw giant boulders out of the woods while plague cards force players to eliminate certain cards from their hands. I've often described it like a board game version of Space Invaders ... set in a fantasy world, of course. Each turn the monsters get closer and closer, often moving clockwise or counterclockwise from their original starting point. Very tense but very fun and a great way to work as a team and share in the victory, or defeat.

There is also a solitaire version of the game, which I really like when I want to play and no one else is available and there is an expansion for this game, called The Wizard's Tower, which adds a LOT of new monsters - some of them that fly! - and makes the game even harder but more exciting. The newest expansion will be out around March so you can play this in multiple modes.
