Description

Dragon Castle is a game freely inspired by Mahjong Solitaire. During your turn, you take a pair of identical tiles from the central "castle" (known as the Dragon Castle) and place them on your own realm board to build your own castle. From time to time, you may sacrifice these tiles to acquire shrines in their place. 

 Every time you create a set of tiles of the same kind, you "consolidate" them, i.e. flip them face down to score points. When you consolidate a set, you may also build shrines on top of the consolidated tiles: Shrines allow you to score more points, but they also limit your building options. You may also take advantage of the available spirit card and its game-changing powers...but this will come at a cost! Finally, don't forget to check the dragon card in play, and to follow the building requirements to score bonus points. 

 When the Dragon Castle has been reduced to only one floor, the end of the game is triggered. After one final round, the player with the most points is the lord of the new Dragon Castle…and the winner of the game!

Let’s be honest. When I say the words Dragon Castle, what immediately comes to your mind? Swords, fire breathing, magic, fighting, treasure? Well, this game has everything to do with none of those things I just listed. That was strictly an attention grab, for an excellent reason.

First things first. Mahjong is not really that game where you pick two matching tiles from a pile until the pile is empty. That one is called Mahjong Solitaire. Mahjong is a four player game with some parallels to the western card game Rummy and its variants.

If there’s one thing we should learn from games like Azul or Santorini, it’s to never underestimate the power of chunky, colorful pieces to bring an abstract to life. Dragon Castle is no exception to this.

Dragon Castle, is that the Mahjong game? I first learned of Dragon Castle while at the 2018 CMON Expo with Justin Gibbons. When I walked in the first day,  I was asked to join a Dragon Castle tournament. At this stage, I had never heard of the game.

Plays: 2Px2. Dragon Castle looks like mahjong, but it's not mahjong. It is inspired by the computer game Shanghai, which has mahjong tiles, but is nothing like mahjong.
