The Loire Valley during the 15th Century. As influential princes, players devote their efforts to careful trading and building in order to lead their estates to prominence.
In the original board game “The Castles of Burgundy“, released in 2011 and designed by the cult author Stefan Feld, players work to build the most successful medieval princedom.
They chose to place new settlements, gather resources, trade, and build castles. TCOB is a classic strategy board game, where everything you do gains you some points. But some choices bring you points faster and easier.
The Castles of Burgundy’s unbroken popularity (Rank 11 overall on Boardgamegeek) even spawned card and dice game spinoffs.
DIGIDICED now sets out to develop the digital adaption. The game will be released on different platforms (iOS, Android, PC, Mac and Linux) and offer cross-platform play, different interfaces for big and small screens, 9 languages and the usual good feature set provided by DIGIDICED.
Two dice set out the action options, but the players always make the final choices. Whether trading or livestock farming, city building or scientific research, many different paths lead to the prosperity and prominence of the players!
The many ways to gain victory points in this building game require careful thought round after round along with extensive planning ahead. Thanks to the different estates, the game remains challenging for the players for a long time, as no two games play out alike.
