The king has ordered two builders to build a new castle for him. You are one of them. "The award you will be given will be in proportion to the quality of your work", the king said. "The quality of your work", you think. He doesn’t care about the quality, he only cares for what he can see with his eye... You will have to build the top of the towers, for that is where the king will look first. And if you can show the king how much you have built, you will surely be given an extra award.

Great solitaire game
Single Player mode and Dual Player mode plus optional handicap variations affecting difficulty. Solitaire has three levels of difficulty (I assume just different pseudo random number generators). Two dimensional scoring provides much of the fun.
With fair dice for two players this would be a blast.
I played it 30 times the first day, 100 the next.
I didn’t know what the circled numbers meant in the Help menu (actually irrelevant because missing context). Minimal yet sufficient instruction after playing awhile.
Simple rules provide a fun combination of strategy & luck.
I am glad I picked this game to try out. Thank you. It’s a keeper.
Color scheme and illustration create a calm mood.
Great quick-play strategy game!
What a great find! It doesn’t take long to learn this game, and it’s perfect for playing during a break when you don’t have a lot of time. It takes thought, but it’s not frustratingly hard, and you can adjust the difficulty level too. I love the concept and design. Great job, developer!
Very nice game!
It’s a bit too driven by luck. But that’s a minor point. This is a fast, fun game that makes you think.
