Product Description

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!

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.

3 ways to play:

  • Standard: Co-op with one winner
  • Co-op: All players vs. the game
  • Overlord: Many players vs. one player

Includes rules for solitaire play.

Fun, Easy but Lacks in Art
October 01, 2015

Castle Panic is a fun, coop, tower defense game. It is easy to teach and play and family friendly too! However it lacks in art work. I was disappointed to see how everything looked during game play. Sure it's cartoon-y and light, but you're defending a castle from monsters and I just feel like they could've made the theme stronger and a more immersive game with better artwork, even with the gameplay being the same. Artwork just goes a long way for me.

I have played this with entry level gamers and they enjoyed it. It's hard, but not too hard. It's fun, but also not too fun, I am biased though. There are even some gamers that I wouldn't play this with because the art work alone. I have had it pointed out by other people as well... Like I didn't already know hahaha. Anyway, fun game! They just should've put more effort in the art work.

They have other versions (Dead Panic, Munchkin Panic) I wish I would've got one of those ones instead... Munchkin artwork is bad but purposefully and acceptably, Dead Panic does look a little more appropriate for the theme. Regardless the game play is fun and moves fast enough to keep every one engaged.
