June 8, 2015: Castellan Recommended By Mensa!

Castellan wins Mensa Recommendation!

We always knew Castellan, designed by Beau Beckett, was a great game, which is why we submitted it to American Mensa for consideration. Well, they got back to us, and good news: Castellan won their Recommended by Mensa designation! For those who don't know, 15 games got this honor this year. It's a big deal, and we're all very, very excited about it.

"A significant improvement over lines and dots! Definitely need to plan ahead for those last few cards . . . strategy section was a great add. Instructions are pretty clear and game play is smooth and fun. Almost like a chess game . . . need to be thinking several moves ahead." - Mensa Judge, Comment Card, Overall Comments

"This is a simply wonderful game!! It's so rare to find an abstract strategy game that has a relevant theme as this one does. I'd love to see you release a third set of colors (say purple & orange) so it can expand to six players." - Mensa Judge, Comment Card, Overall Comments

"Nice plastic pieces." - Mensa Judge, Comment Card, Overall Comments
