Vlog Ep. 113: Interesting Twists with Citadels

#BaduyPride Monday nights are for tabletop games, and today's episode was about Citadels, the 2-8 player city building game that includes a very creative social deduction layer on top of things. We really love this game and appreciate not just its nuances for strategy, but also how easy it is for newer players to pick up given its fairly straightforward rules. 

It's hard to determine which aspects of the game I like most. Building the districts almost feels like an afterthought that just happens to dictate the final game outcome. I will always feel that more of the fun comes from how players choose roles each round and then ultimately see the results of their actions. The fact that players change roles every round does make for some interesting choices and thus the different twists and turns of each game that are different every time.
