This is one of my family’s absolute favorite board games for the whole family. This is a cooperative game, so you work together to fight off a horde of monsters who are trying to tear down your castle walls and destroy your towers. It sure is fun to work together as a family towards a common goal that doesn’t involve loading the dishwasher!
Note: The manufacturer says this is for ages 10 and up, but according to several other families (including mine!) most 7-year-olds who can read are ready for this game. For younger kids, you’ll want My First Castle Panic instead.
From the Manufacturer
Castle Panic is a cooperative tower defense board game for 1 to 6 players. Players must work together to defend their Castle from almost endless waves of attacking Monsters!
The co-op element makes Castle Panic a great family game, and the perfect kick-off for your weekly game night. You must work together to defend your Castle, in the center of the board, from Monsters that attack out of the forest, at the edges of the board. Trade cards, hit and slay Monsters, and plan strategies together to keep your Castle towers intact.
Win or lose as a team, but only the player with the most victory points is declared the Master Slayer. Players must balance the survival of the group with their own desire to win.
WARNING: Choking Hazard – Contains small parts not suitable for children under 3 years.
