Castle Panic

I had wanted to play Castle Panic for awhile now, but haven’t had the opportunity try it. I was worried that I wouldn’t like it since I’m like the only person in the world who isn’t in love with Pandemic. Thankfully, it’s available to play on TableTop Simulator, so I got it try it before I bought it.

I found the rules online and almost instantly fell in love with Castle Panic. The mixture of luck and strategy is just right for me and I love the co-op gameplay that isn’t as complex as Pandemic.

I immediately signed onto Amazon and ordered the physical copy, which arrived the next day. Interestingly enough, I actually like the solitaire gameplay as well. If my wife is busy, it’s one of the few board games that I can still set up and have a decent experience playing alone against the game.

Gameplay is pretty straightforward, use your cards to attack monsters, move the remaining monsters forward 1 space, draw more monsters, rinse, repeat. The strategy is playing the right cards at the right time, knowing which ones to trade and discard, and saving the appropriate cards for future turns. The luck is which monsters came out and which cards come out.

I had killed 37 out of 49 monsters before that destroyed my castle in solitaire mode.

Overall, this is one of my favorite games. It’s easy to teach and seems easy enough when you first start playing. However, you quickly realize how challenging it’s going to be shortly after you play a couple rounds. I definitely recommend picking this game up for your collection.
