DESCRIPTION

A recent war has left all the king's castles in ruin. Only the foundations of those once magnificent monuments remain. The war not only robbed the king of his castles, but also of his youth. The now elderly king must choose a successor from among his sons. He has charged his sons with rebuilding his castles and promised the throne to the one who can rebuild the tallest and largest castles.

Each prince has 6 knights to supervise the building. Tired of war, the king requires that the building be done in peace and spirit of co-operation. Thus, the princes may not attack each other or the castles being built. Two or more princes may work together on a castle with their knights competing to control the highest towers of the castle. The king will spend each year in a castle and will reward knights guarding him accordingly.

Once each year, the king will tour the castles, to judge the progress of each son. After he finishes the third tour, he will choose his successor and prepare for death.
