What We Think:

Citadels is a game that is accessible for any type of players, 2 to 3 rounds will leave you in total control of the game and its mechanics. This is a simple game that will  satisfy new and more experienced players thanks to its fast pace and a great  role playing aspect. Citadels is a city building game where a very ingenuous role playing mechanic makes the difference. Players need to guess to guess who is who around the table before making their move while choosing characters that will grant them the power they need to fulfil their strategy.  Another great aspect of this game is its scalability, it can be played with many different numbers of players and even make for a great 2 player game. Citadels has something for everybody, give it a try!

  • ISlayTheDragon: 10/10

"The design is a masterpiece of simplicity and interaction – a poster child of the old adage, “Less is more,” if ever there was one.  Faidutti has created an eminently fun and accessible game simply by refusing to overburden the design with cumbersome and superfluous elements." -       (read full review)

I really enjoy the game! I like role selection, I like card drafting, I like trying to build stuff, so over all the game is good! - (watch full review)


  • The Little Metal Dog Show

As I said in the beginning, Citadels is simple and nasty. It’s a game which is very easy to pick up but still filled with bluffing, strategy and skill – who could really ask for more? - (read full review)
