Citadels is a game of medieval cities, nobles and intrigue. During the game, players become medieval rulers trying to build their city before their opponents. Add new districts, but be careful how much gold is spent.
Lords, ladies and nobility also play a role in this game. However, the game can change in a heartbeat as each player secretly choses a new role, such as the assassin, the thief, the magician, the king, the bishop, the merchant, the architect or the warlord.
This edition of Citadels includes the Dark City expansion pack, which comes with 14 new purple district cards and a wooden crown marker. This game is recommended for two to eight players ages 14 and up. Each game lasts about 20-60 minutes.
