Imagine that you have just finished a rousing game of "Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig" with six of your good friends. There are six massive castles arranged neatly on the table and the tile tray is nearly empty. Everyone is happy, cheerful, and perhaps slightly inebriated. You look around the table and rejoice in the good time you just had, but the night is not over! The most daunting task of tallying those castles lies ahead. Your shoulders start to slump a little...

But fear not! The Mad King's Steward is here to preserve the good mood and do the nasty accounting work for you. Just tap the camera button and point your device at one of the castles. In mere seconds you will have an accurate score tabulated for your INSANELY MASSIVE castle. Huzzah! The good mood is preserved and your game night can continue unimpeded!

From the creator of the Pointsman comes another ARKit/CoreML enabled smart scoring app; here to save the fun by making the scoring of your favorite games a little less tedious.

Want to try it out but don't have a finished game handy? Just go to and use the Mad King's Steward on the image there!

Makes Scoring So Easy!

Love Between Two Castles, but the end game scoring can be daunting for players, and mistakes can be made. This app fixes those problems and makes it a much more enjoyable experience! Thank you for creating this!

Between Two Castles is a fantastic tabletop game but the scoring at the end can be a little tedious and prone to errors. This app fixes it, works smoothly, and makes it much more likely the game will be brought to the table. Thanks!
