In Citadels, you and your fellow players are vying for the coveted post of Master Builder. To impress the monarchy, you must construct the most majestic medieval city. You'll need the help of various characters - Assassin, Thief, Architect, Patrician, Cardinal, even the King and others - to build your magnificent city in this revolving role-selection game. The game ends at the close of a round in which a player erects their eighth building. Players then tally their points, and the player with the highest score wins.
