Between Two Castles Of Mad King Ludwig

Between Two Castles Of Mad King Ludwig
Stonemaier Games
The King demands a castle!

You are a world-renowned Master Builder who has been asked by the Mad King Ludwig to help design his castles. Projects of such significance require the expertise of more than one person, so for each assignment you are paired with another Master Builder to execute your grandiose plans. Will your planning and collaborative skills be enough to design the most impressive castles in the world?

Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig is a competitive tile-drafting game in which each tile is a room in a castle. You work together with the player on your left to design one castle, and with the player on your right on another castle. On each turn you select two tiles from your hand, reveal them, then work with your partners to place them. To win, you have to share your attention and your devotion between two castles.

Is “Just as good” not good enough?
In this generation of “Is 'X' game a 'Y' Killer?” mentality, and the perceived nature of the battle for shelf space, Is “Just as Good as it's predecessor” good enough to earn a title a place in your collection? Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig is a great interweaving of the aspects from Between Two Cities and The Castles of Mad King Ludwig but it doesn't exceed or “replace” either title. It is a good game that I anticipate seeing plenty of times on my table but if the core audience for this release are fans of one or both titles, maybe that isn't enough.
