Game target: Each player tries to be the first to place all of their character cards onto the board. Most of the cards have some sort of special effect when they are placed, often causing one or more other cards to be sent back to the hands of other players. The winner of the game is the first player to get rid of their cards.

The more players you have, the more luck will factor into the game, and the shorter the game will last. However, with two players, Castle is very tactical, and can last over an hour. A five player game is easier to play, and rarely lasts more than a half hour. 

Rules: Rules in English
Strategy: -
Comments: My edition is from 2002. The designers are Bruno Faidutti and Serge Laget. French original name is 'Castel'.

You may do two of the following actions and hey may be the same:
- Draw one card from their deck.
 
- Exchange one of the cards in their hand with one of the cards in the Exchange. The card from their hand takes the place of the one in the Exchange. 
- Play one card from their hand. 

This feels like a very light game, which is ok as a filler but not really my type of game. I still haven't had a chance to play it on two, which is said to be tactically much better.
