Product Description

NOTE: This edition of Citadels comes with the materials available in the Dark City expansion.

Citadels is the award winning game by Bruno Faidutti in which players are attempting to complete their city first. Each turn, players choose a secret role from eight choices: bishop, thief, king, etc. Each role has a special ability and allows the player to attempt a different strategy. Players must always beware of the deadly assassin, however, and players must constantly seek to double guess their opponents. Each city is made up of different districts, some of which also provide special abilities to the players. When combined, the game is an interesting bluffing and tactical game. This card game provides a ton of enjoyment and can handle up to seven players!

Very Clever Game!
September 23, 2009

I'm very impressed with this game. The system of selecting characters, which also dictates turn order, is pure genius. This is my favorite new game. Each time we've played it, we've had had a blast. It is so well balanced with a lot of player interaction. And nobody ever seems to run away with the lead. They have all been very tight games. If you enjoy clever strategy games then this game is a must have. It easily earns the highest rating available.

Best Greek translated game so far
August 17, 2007

Ok, I know that you will come back with settlers (apoikoi) or lotr (arhondas) but dont get me wrong, this game is still in top 5 greek translated games so far and maybe you don't even know that it has been printed in Greek... -never mind,now you know ;)

Do you like role play in games? do you like bluffing? do you like quick rules but enough strategy? do you like to make friends and foes in a game? do you want to make your 8 yrs kids boardgamegeeks like you? Well, if your answer to all of these questions is "yes" then grab a copy asap. A place in your games gripsack will be occupied with Citadels for a long time...

Fun Group Experience
April 07, 2007

Citadels is a fun variant of a simple empire building game where you try to score points by building different structures and different combinations of structures that enable more points and abilities throughout the game. A very common theme in games but the twist comes with the characters that are involved in the game and are chosen at the beginning of each turn. Each one has a plus and a downside. For example the assassin can eliminate one player for the turn but that is all he is able to do, while others players gain more gold, structures, or are able to control the flow of play as the King. Very fun. The only downside to Citadels is that I recommend having more than three players playing to really get the full experience out of this game. Now there are rules for two and three player games included but the game shines with four or more even though this is the only downfall of the game I would say it is its strength because the core of the game is the interaction between players. Wonderful Game.
