In 2014, Castles of Mad King Ludwig brought out the interior designer in all of us with its unique combination of mechanisms and opportunity to be a visionary architect at work! It became an instant classic for many, wanting to play again and again creating endless, luxurious castles, while also attempting to achieve the most victory points over their opponents. This incredible collector's edition of the tile placement classic would be oh-so-pleasing to King Ludwig II of Bavaria…
In the game, each player starts with a simple foyer. One player takes on the role of the Master Builder, and that player sets prices for a set of rooms that can be purchased by the other players. The Master Builder will then pick from the leftovers after the other players have paid the Master Builder for their rooms. When a room is added to a castle, the player who built it gains castle points based on the size and type of room constructed, as well as bonus points based on the location of the room. When a room is completed, with all entranceways leading to other rooms in the castle, the player receives one of seven special rewards.
After each purchasing round, a new player becomes the Master Builder who sets prices for a new set of rooms. After several rounds, the game ends, then additional points are awarded for achieving bonus goals, having the most popular rooms, and being the most accommodating to the King's demands, which change each game. Whoever ends up with the most castle points wins!
