My First Castle Panic Game
Come together and defend your castle against the monsters! Bringing the fun of the original Castle Panic to a younger group of warriors, this cooperative game pits the heroes against the monsters and their relentless march toward your castle. Each space on the gameboard path features one of three different shapes, in one of three colors. Three monsters start at the forest end of the path, with 13 more in a draw pile. Each turn, players draw a card from the deck of castle defenders, plays a card from their hand (or entreats another player for help) to defeat a monster (matching the shape and color of the space the monster occupies), moves the remaining monster tokens one step closer to the castle, and adds a new monster to the beginning of the path. Special heroes and monsters bring unique elements to game play. Will you vanquish the monsters or will they tear down your castle? 1-4 players, with a 20-minute game play. ~ Megan
My First Castle Panic is a preschool version of our best-selling game Castle Panic. Players still have to work together to defend their castle from incoming monsters, but in this streamlined version there is just a single path and there is no reading required to play the game. My First Castle Panic is a cooperative game for 1 to 4 players ages 4 and up that plays in 20 minutes.
A group of monsters is racing out of the woods and coming right at your Castle! Players need to catch all the monsters before they smash the Castle flat. Send out your brave defenders to match the color and shape of the space where a monster is to catch it. But watch out! The monsters move closer to the Castle every turn, and more monsters keep coming!
