This October, your castles will get madder, and more secretive.
Castles of Mad King Ludwig is expanding in October with 30 new room tiles and some pretty cool new game mechanics. The expansion, Castles of Mad King Ludwig: Secrets, does more than just toss in some extra rooms. It adds moats and barbicans (outer defenses) which totally change the look and even the shape of your castle in progress.
Also added are secret passageways, which can connect rooms in interesting ways and can also provide a sound buffer for noisy activity rooms.
Ludwig was known as the “Swan King” and hidden within the 30 new room tiles are swans, which can be turned in for a quick cash infusion or for victory points. Of course, there are new Kings favors as well, adding extra goals to tackle in your game.
Castles creator Ted Alspach promises the new additions “broadens the overall game experience without increasing complexity.” Here’s hoping it also leads to some crazy castles.
