Bezier Games and Ted Alspach have announced The Palace Of Mad King Ludwig, the successor to the award-winning Castles Of Mad King Ludwig. In The Palace Of Mad King Ludwig, 2-4 players must all build rooms within a single gigantic palace, rife with different room types, water pieces and of course, swans. As rooms are completed, a moat forms around the outside, and when the ends of the moat connect, the game ends. The player who contributes the most to the palace will be victorious. There is no auction mechanic in this new game, with players taking turns laying tiles in one communal palace. The swans act as a unique resource management mechanic, with multi-color swan tokens acting as currency, points and keys to new features and abilities.
The Palace of Mad King Ludwig is due to be released at Essen, in October 2017.
