Ratings and Reviews
Campaign gets too difficult!
Great implementation of the boardgame but I can’t for the life of me pass Burg Rheinfels in the Campaign mode. It would be nice if there were difficulty settings in the campaign, or some sort of hint/help system.
Would love online play!
A bit complicated to learn this game. It would be a perfect online match. Similar to Carcassonne.
Save your money!
It’s a really expensive game considering it has a clunky tutorial and no online playing capabilities. I wish I hadn’t purchased it.
