Product Description

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!

A cardgame? I hardly noticed....:)
June 17, 2002

This game is cute. This game is great. This game is a masterpiece. I have never seen so much 'game'in such a small box as it happened with this game.

The thing with this game is, it's a card game, but you aren't quite aware of that: it almost plays like a boardgame.

I think a game like this deserves to be in everybody's game-collection. The game-mechanism is extremely well-balanced but most of all very innovative. Playing a game like this makes me wonder how creative a designer can be. Ok, I haven't played many other card-games apart from the traditional cardgames, but this one surely surprised me. It offers a lot of different elements, a bit of strategy, a bit of luck, a bit of annoying other players, interactivity, the 'who-is-who' factor, humour, and it all works very well. I also like the design, the artwork: very atmospheric and beautifully drawn cards. Don't even mention the price. This is really a bargain.

This is a great game for kids as well. But in no way it is a childish game. It only indicates that it is appealing to a various mix of gameplayers.

If you are looking for something else but a board-game, yet want a similar impact, then I think this is the one.... Don't buy it if you only like games like Chess and Go. Buy it if you want to be entertained in a less ambitious, yet surprising way.

Great 3 player plus game!
April 17, 2002

I first played this game at the 'spellenspektakel' a dutch gameshow. I played several games, but this was absolutly the best. I like this game the best with 3 or more players, 2 is okay but it's more fun with more. This, El Grande and Settlers is my favorite game!

fantastic game
December 19, 2001

I have played this game, which is called 'Machiavelli' in Dutch, a couple of times with two players.

I like the bluffing aspect in a 2-player game, predicting what your opponent is about to do and avoiding what your opponent guesses that you're going to do. I can't wait to play this game with more than 2 players.
