Castles of Burgundy (2011) - Accessibility Teardown – Meeple Like Us
I’m not going into this teardown with a great deal of optimism. While Castles of Burgundy is a genuinely great game it is also one that is renowned for being an aesthetic mess. However, it’s not as simple as saying ‘This is a game that needs a new edition’ because the relatively low production values mean that it’s one of the most affordable games we’ve looked at on Meeple Like Us. A copy of Monopoly costs about £22 at full RRP, and that’s the same price as Castles of Burgundy. I suspect a lavish new edition, or even the same edition with better art, would also come with a bump to the kind of eye-watering price-tags that we tend to associate with hobby games. There’s value to be had in value. This is a four star game at a tremendously good price point and you need to bear that in mind when going forward.
