15th Century princes from the Loire valley devote their efforts to strategic trading and building in order to bring their estates prosperity and prominence throughout Burgundy.
The Castles of Burgundy is a game is about placing settlement tiles into the princedom. Every tile has a function that starts when the tile is placed. The princedom itself consists of several regions, each of which demands its own settlement tile. The core game mechanism involves two dice. The pips show the kind of action the players are allowed. For example: example: roll a 2 and a 5: using the 2 buys a watch tower and places it on a 5 city tile which triggers the function of the tower with additional advantages. It is also possible to influence the dice, so the player is not completely subject to luck.
