App description: 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 Kings castle and developing the city around it, they earn prestige points and gain the Kings favour. When the castle is finished, the player who has earned the most prestige wins the game.

* Pass & Play mode for playing on one device with your friends

This is a complex strategy German-style-board game, which won Spiel des Jahres 2006 (Germany's "Game of the Year" 2006).

If it is ported well... this will be a hit, like Carcassonne.

It has asynchronous multi player with push! Can not wait to hit the "buy-button"!
If done right, a must-play. I love the board game version. And I just hope it's the same quality digital version like Carcassonne.

Caylus looks good... might try it out later...

as for Carcassonne... thats another game i have zero clue as to what's it about xD

that $10 price point + $4 for expansions won't let me play it any time soon ._.
