The year is 1289. To strengthen the borders of the Kingdom of France, King Philip the Fair decided to have a new castle built. For the time being, Caylus is but a humble village, but soon, workers and craftsmen will be flocking by the cartload, attracted by the great prospects. Around the building site, a city is slowly rising up…
The players embody master builders. By building the King’s castle and developing the city around it, they earn prestige points and gain the King’s favour. When the castle is finished, the player who has earned the most prestige wins the game.

Unsure I would buy again if I had the chance
I like modern board games and have a fairly good collection of them but have never played this. Bought it as the companies other game, Neuroshima Hex is simply awesome. This game....I am very unsure. There is a learning curve. The tutorial is nearly non-existent as is the explanation of game goals and ways of winning. I will struggle on for a while longer but at present feel I just spent some money I didn't need to.
If you have played the board game then I am sure your experience will be different. But if you want to have a quick and easy entry into understanding the board game then I think this may not be the best way of doing so.
I hope I am wrong.
Very nice implementation
Game looks good and plays well. Only just started playing against AI so can't say if it will challenge. But really enjoyed learning to play the game using this app.
Online Multiplayer Crashes
I can't make it through an online multiplayer session without it crashing. I've reached out to the developers and they were unresponsive. This game is not maintained.
