Board Description

:|: Castle Quest :|:

A board by Kjeld

Terrain Tiles:

  • Each region -- countryside, hamlets, taiga, swamp, wastes -- grants a standard continent for controlling all territories in that region equal to the number of territories in that region.
  • Castles:

  • Each of the four small castles grants multiple bonuses. +1 for each part (gate, walls, keep), and an additional +3 for owning the whole thing.
  • The King's Castle grants +7 for owning the whole thing.
  • Keeps and Castle Gates defend with d7.
  • The King's Castle Keep defends with d10.
  • Walls defend with d9 against the countryside.
  • The King's Castle outer walls artillery attack (7v6) the surrounding countryside and roads.
  • All keeps grant additional vision bonus. Small castle keeps grant vision to each other and the surrounding terrain tiles. King's castle keep grants vision to all castles, enemies, and the King's Road.
  • The King's Road:

  • All attacks along the King's Road are 7 v 6.
  • Other Special Territories:

  • Ogre: Artillery attack (7v6) to all terrain tiles in the Wastes. +5 factory on self. Max 20 units.
  • Giant Spider: Artillery attack (7v6) to all terrain tiles in the Swamp. +5 factory on self. Max 20 units.
  • Assassin's Guild: Artillery attack (7v6) against all Castle Keeps. View all castles and the Ogre, Giant Spider, and Dragon. +5 factory on self. Max 20 units.
  • Dragon: Artillery attack (7v6) against all terrain tiles in the Countryside and Hamlets. +5 factory on self. Max 20 units.
  • Paths:

  • Special one-way paths lead to the Ogre, Spider, Dragon, and Assassin's Guild. These paths have attack advantage going toward these special locations (7v6), but revert to neutral at the start of each player's turn (with, 1, 2, or 3 neutral units depending on step).
