The Loire Valley during the 15th Century. As influential princes, the players devote their efforts to careful trading and building in order to lead their estates to prominence. Two dice set out the action options, but the players always make the final choices. Whether trading or livestock farming, city building or scientific research, many different paths lead to the prosperity and prominence of the players! The many ways to gain victory points in this building game require careful thought round after round along with extensive planning ahead. Thanks to the different estates, the game remains challenging for the players for a long time, as no two games play out alike. The winner is the player with the most victory points at the end of the game.

Ratings and Reviews
Pretty but slow AI play
It does look cool but that does wear off after two turns and you just think all the animations are taking far too long, even when set to fast mode. I love burgundy and used to play it on Yucata, but I’ve never made it past three turns on this expensive app as you realise it’s going to be 40 mins to play a game against two AIs. Look at 7 wonders - pretty but you can blast through a whole game in 5 mins too. Please can I have an option to turn animations off. Thanks.
Great implementation of a great board game
Over the years, I’ve played the physical version of Castles of Burgundy a lot. It is not the prettiest title but the gameplay means it ranks highly in Boardgamegeek’s Top 20 games. The game rewards all players with a constant flow of points, whereas experienced players can look for combos which enable them to place as many tiles as possible or maximum scoring opportunities.
Digidiced’s implementation ticks most of the right boxes. The board layout takes a little getting used to but other than that the game plays intuitively. The only thing I’m not sold in graphically the board disappearing into the “toilet bowl” at the end of a turn!
The AI is not especially challenging on easy and medium but hard AI runs close to another human opponent. I have two issues with the AI - firstly often it appears that the dice rolls are fixed to provide the human player with dice they can’t use -fortunately the game mitigates this so it is never a serious issue. Secondly, minor slow down can occur when playing on hard AI.
I haven’t had any crashes on either the phone or the iPad.
Fantastic game, well implemented, looks great
One of the best board games of all time, with a great mix of strategy and tactics. The only real knock on the physical version is that it looks ugly. This fixes that resoundingly. So it’s almost perfect. Only major thing I would like, as others say, is it would be nice to have an option on ranked games to choose a 2P, 3P or 4P game with random strangers once the player base is large enough to support this. But that may need a drop in the price? Also would be good if you could super-speed or turn off animations altogether when playing the AI.
