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.

Citadels: A Quick Review
May 23, 2006


Citadels is a character selection and building game by Bruno Faidutti (Queen's Necklace and many more), every turn the group of players selects one of a pool of characters, this character will give that player a special ability. On their turn a player may collect gold or more ‘district’ cards, build a ‘district’, and/or use their character’s power.

There are typically eight characters to choose from, the regular ones being the Assassin, the Thief, the Magician, the King, the Bishop, the Merchant, the Architect, and the Warlord. Each of these characters provides a different ability, the Assassin can kill another character (good deduction and a pinch of luck are required to assassinate the character owned by a particular player), the Thief can steal gold, the Magician cards, the King can take extra money and is the first next round to select a character from the pool of eight, and so on.

The expansion that comes with Fantasy Flight’s new version of the game includes a bunch of new characters that can be exchanged with the regular ones, a bunch of new special district cards, as well as some gorgeous plastic ‘butterscotch’ appearing gold pieces and a small wooden crown marker to indicate who the King is. Citadels is a game that can be played with between 2 and 8 players (there will be 9 characters to choose from in an 8 player game), the length of the game will depend on how familiar everyone is with the process, and how many people are playing, the more people the longer the game.

The object in Citadels is to build the best and most wealthy Fantasy city (yes it does say Medieval on the box), the game ends when someone builds eight districts – although this person may not be the actual winner of the game! This game involves clever character selection, an ability to think on your feet, intelligent play, a dash of luck and a good sense of humour (especially if you get assassinated regularly!).

Check out Bruno Faidutti’s web site for tons of information about the history of the game, about the making of it, as well as many variants – including a great drinking game!

If your group has a penchant for Role Playing – an accent for the characters doesn’t go astray – nor does a large golden crown to be worn by the undisputed King! The object of playing these games is fun after all; Citadels will provide that and more!

Simple Rules, Fast Rounds & Subtle Gameplay
January 18, 2006

I used to enjoy Verräter very much but Citadels goes much beyond.

I agree that when you get killed several times in a row sucks, but it can be avoided if you if you just forfeit the what would be right character choice.

Although I think the original character´s set is the best, I also like to change the bishop and the warlord for there equivalent.
