ABOUT THE CASTLES OF MAD KING LUDWIG
You are tasked with building an amazing, extravagant castle for King Ludwig II of Bavaria…one room at a time. You see, the King loves castles, having built Neuschwanstein (the castle that inspired the Disney theme park castles) and others, but now he’s commissioned you to build the biggest, best castle ever. For 1 – 4 players, games last about 90 minutes each.
Here is their announcement from their 2021 upcoming update post:
First up, we have the just-announced Castles of Mad King Ludwig Collector’s Edition, which we’ve been working on for most of 2020. In fact, playtesting the brand new expansions with the staff was one of the highlights of the year. We dedicated ourselves to come up with the best possible combination of premium components and new elements, all efficiently organized with GameTrayz™. And if any game is deserving of a giant version, it’s the sprawling layouts you make each game, so we’re also making a Castles Colossal Set of rooms which are 4x the size of the originals, which is just an incredible thing to play (and even watch being played). The Kickstarter will launch January 19th, and it will ship before the end of the year.
