Caylus - economic & strategic board game for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad

!!! Caylus is now approved and will be available for purchase on Monday, Jan 16 !!!

The year is 1289. To strengthen the borders of the Kingdom of France, King Philip the Fair decided to have a new castle built. For the time being, Caylus is but a humble village, but soon, workers and craftsmen will be flocking by the cartload, attracted by the great prospects. Around the building site, a city is slowly rising up…
The players embody master builders. By building the King’s castle and developing the city around it, they earn prestige points and gain the King’s favour. When the castle is finished, the player who has earned the most prestige wins the game.

Awards Caylus received:
  • International Gamers Awards Best Strategy Game 2006
  • Deutscher SpielePreis 1st Place Prize Winner 2006
  • Spiel des Jahres Special Prize for Complex Play 2006
  • GAMES Magazine Best Advanced Strategy Runner-Up 2007

  • Pass & Play mode for playing on one device with your friends
  • multiple AI players, every with a different strategy
  • asynchronous multiplayer with push notifications
  • Universal App – buy once for your iPhone and iPad
  • Game Center support

Caylus is coming to the App Store in January 2012

Looks great. How does this compare to Carcassonne?

Well, it's different from Carcassonne
It's an strategic/economic game, Carcassonne is more of a family game. In Caylus you need to plan how to get the resources as cheep as possible and how to exchange them into useful stuff (like buildings, castle sections, VPs) in the most efficient way.
