From the Kaothic Games website: You Need: * A piecepack set * Pen and paper The object of Castles is to collect the most gold over a predetermined number of rounds (equal to the number of players, one different a player starts each round). You must place your castle nearest most valuable resource tiles and try to avoid hostile tiles, which deplete the gold you collect from the region. To control tiles you must deploy your armies over the terrain. To count your gains you must attend the tile where you placed your castle and four orthogonally adjacent tiles to that tile. After all rounds, the player with the most gold wins.
