Castle Danger

A perfect-information abstract for two Kings ready for war.




Castle Danger is a 2-player, turn-based, full-information, strategy game. It is played on a rectangular board, divided into squares -- 9 columns by 7 rows. The middle column on the board is an impassible river, leaving each player with a 4x7 section of the board on which to control their pieces.

Six (6) different types of pieces are used in the game: a single King per player (must be protected), Wizards (gives the player more moves to use each turn), Builders (add/remove Walls from the board), Cannons (shoot cannonballs at opponent's pieces), Walls (intercept cannonballs -- used to give protection to other pieces), and Fire (placed on the board wherever a cannonball lands).

If a player's "portal" square (the middle square in their outside column) is open at the start of the turn, the player can add a new piece on that square.

The first player to hit their opponent's King with a cannonball is the winner.
