The Loire Valley during the 15th Century. As influential princes, the players devote their efforts to careful trading and building in order to lead their estates to prominence. 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. The winner is the player with the most victory points at the end of the game.

Ratings and Reviews
Incredibly Addictive Adaptation of the Classic Boardgame
Castles of Burgundy is an all-time great boardgame, and this adaptation does it justice. Great asynchronous play - I’m currently playing games with folks from all over the place and it’s really smooth. If you’re used to the boardgame layout, it may take you a game or two to get your bearings, but once you do you’ll appreciate how the developers laid things out to work surprisingly well on a phone-sized screen.
Do yourself a favor though and change the animation speed to fast, and turn-off replay in the games list if you want to play your turn as quickly as possible.
P.S. It had some bad bugs when it first came out, but most of them are fixed now - you can buy with confidence.
Super fun game
It is so much fun to play that it doesn’t really matter whether I win or lose.
One tip: If the game freezes, as it still sometimes does, access the menu via the button in the right top corner and select ypur current game in the lists of active games. The game will reload and open right before your last turn during which it froze.
Update March 13: All of a sudden, I can’t play anymore. “network error”, “client needs to be updated for online game” - but I only play against the AI. My network is fine. Play runs until after I placed the first card. Then the error message pops up. I checked for an update, there actually was one, but after the update still the same.
One of my favorite board games
Great implementation of this game! Runs smooth on my iPad Pro 12.9" (2nd gen). Wouldn't run on an iPad 4. Also runs on iPad Air 2 fine as well. Make sure you have a high-end iPad and enjoy this sweet game!
Devs, please make the "grunts/speech" a toggle item so we can disable. The advisors or whatever they are that pop up at the bottom right are OK, animation-wise, but the sound they make start grating pretty quickly.
Developer Response ,
Hi, you can turn gameplay speed to fast. This disables the animations from the characters completely.
