Castles of Mad King Ludwig Secrets
March 16, 2015 - 8:00am
Secrets lurk in the shadows of the King’s castle...barbicans, moats, courtyards...and clever Secret Passages... Today, Bezier Games (One Night Ultimate Werewolf, Suburbia, and the upcoming Favor of the Pharaoh) announces the first expansion to the Essen 2014 hit, Castles of Mad King Ludwig by Ted Alspach. This expansion takes Castles of Mad King Ludwig, currently ranked #84 on boardgamegeek.com, to new levels of intrigue, by introducing dozens of new components and several new mechanics.
King Ludwig II of Bavaria was known for his eccentric castle-building, having created some of the most iconic castles in the world during his short reign. He is known as the “Swan king” as his signature castle, Neuschwanstein, translates roughly to “New Swan Stone”. One of the elements of a castle that Ludwig didn’t get to build during his short lifetime was a moat, something he longed for as a moat separated two of the castles he frequented as a young boy. But he did get to indulge in another of his architectural desires: Neuschwanstein has several secret passages added specifically at Ludwig’s request.
Designer Ted Alspach had the following to say about Castles of Mad King Ludwig Secrets:
“Barbicans and Moats change the way you construct your castle, upping the spacial element that so many people enjoy in the original Castles game. The new rooms provide immense replayability, and coupled with placing Secret Passages and collecting Swans for money and/or points, it really broadens the overall game experience without increasing complexity.”
Secrets will be available for purchase in October 2015. Preorders are available by visiting www.beziergames.com.
