To be selected for the coveted post of Master Builder, you must impress the monarchy by constructing a majestic medieval metropolis. In Citadels, players use the local citizens to acquire gold and build districts to complete their city. Players draft characters each round, looking for those who provide the desired special abilities to further develop their cities-or hinder their opponents' efforts. Hire the elusive Thief and pick one of your rival's pockets or commission the Artist to beautify your districts and increase their value. Plot, scheme and deceive your way to the top as you attempt to predict your opponents' actions and foil their plans. Only the best city will earn its steward the title of Master Builder.
From the manufacturer
Become the new Master Builder of the Kingdom. First, you’ll have to impress the monarchy by constructing powerful edifices that will stand the test of time.
Get assistance from some of the kingdom’s experts like the Architect, the Merchant, and the Warlord. Each character has a special ability that can give you an edge.
Each round you will secretly choose one or more characters to help you out. Can you anticipate which characters the competition took?
Watch out for the Assassin and the Thief. One can steal all your gold before you can use it, and one will end your turn before it starts.
Pay gold to construct District cards. The cost of the building also denotes its point value at the end of the game. Try and build one of each of the five types for a bonus.
You have to double and triple guess your opponents. Who did they pick? Are they gunning for you this round. It’s a combination of press-your-luck and hidden identity.
not appropriate for children under the age of 3

The original version of the game with the old art, lesser card stock, no tokens, and without the new characters and buildings been repackaged as Bruno Faidutti's Citadels "Classic" Card Game - 2016 Edition . I greatly prefer the new card art and quality as well as the addition of the new characters.
Because the new edition has so many characters and buildings there are a number of set ups you can use to play (suggested ones are in the rulebook). The goal of Citadels is to accrue the most victory points, which you get by adding buildings/districts into your city. The real core of this game selecting and playing characters with special abilities and using that ability to either help you build, get cards, change player order, and inhibit your opponents to build.
Bruno Faidutti is great at creating games which look very simple, and are simple to learn, but have a nice level of complexity and replayability. Citadels is a classic game and the new edition from Asmodee is the best version of the game which has been released yet.
It requires some tactics, but if you aren’t feeling up to deep thinking, you can still play with minimal effort, you just might lose (oh well). It’s pretty quick to get the hang of the gameplay, harder to fully understand what you have to do to win.
There is a 2-player version, where you play 2 characters working towards the same city. That was fun, but didn’t last very long, I think it’s best with more players.
Anyway, in this cool upgraded box, you have not only that basic game, but 2 complete other sets of characters, and extra districts. Because there are so many different characters you could chose for your base 8 (or 9), the game comes with sturdy cardboard/tiles for each character, so you can display the characters in play.
Recommended for game enthusiasts and casual gamers alike.
