Once hailed as The Next Big Thing in designer gaming, now reviled in some circles, Citadels nevertheless claimed space #67 on The One Hundred. Oddly enough, it will play well with 2-7 players... and has fans at both ends of that spectrum. The designer, Bruno Faidutti, borrowed the key mechanism (the choosing of roles) from Verrater... and actually created a more enjoyable game.William Eldard: "This is a great little card game that reminds me of Puerto Rico, in that players select the roles they will play on each round. However, the mechanics for secretly selecting the roles is quite ingenius, and forces players to try to outthink their opponents. The artwork on the cards is beautiful, too."
