Reviews of The Castles of Burgundy

I admired the cleverness of mitigating the luck of the dice. I enjoyed the battle of trying to gain first player and the tactical nature of picking and choosing which regions to take. Just generally the thinky, crunchy strategy that never tipped my brain over the edge but certainly got it working was a wonderful gaming experience. I got to play with my 11 year old son and wife and we all understood it and were competitive with each other. Those new to the hobby should definitely not start here, but when you are ready to take on a heavier game this has to be a contender for the perfect gateway to Euro games. - Read more at Board Game Review UK

This is a fantastic game full of decisions, different strategies and the right amount of “take that”. I will always enjoy playing it (despite the lack of variation in the game), and will never say no when someone suggests it at a game night. Brilliant game, highly recommended. - Read more at SvsJ Board Games

    This is a phenomenal game that I would recommend to absolutely anyone. It doesn't look great on the table but the gameplay is fantastic.
