A wonderful deep strategy game

We love this. It's beautiful on the table and plays so smoothly and simply but has so many difficult choices and paths to victory (points). It can be a pain to set up so we ended up getting the insert which helps organise the tiles and pieces, this has made it so much quicker to get going.

You select an action from tiles on a wheel at the top of the board and then activate that action and any bonuses that might come with it. Building the wall, travelling along the road, developing the town and climbing the cathedral are all ways to score. You can also enhance your own board to make the actions stronger when you take them. There is so much you want to do and a limited number of turns to do it. I think this one is a must buy/try.

Charles IV has been crowned King of Bohemia and ruler of the Holy Roman Empire. From his castle in Prague, he oversees construction of new fortifications: a bridge across the Vltava River, a university, and a cathedral rising within the walls of the castle itself. Prague is already among the largest cities in Europe. King Charles will make it the capital of an empire!

In Praga Caput Regni, players take the role of wealthy citizens who are organizing various building projects in medieval Prague. By expanding their wealth and joining in the construction, they gain favor with the king. Players choose from six actions on the game board — the "action crane" — that are always available, but which are weighted with a constantly shifting array of costs and benefits. By using these actions, you can increase your resources, improve the strength of your chosen actions, and build "New Prague City", the Charles Bridge, or city walls. You can possibly gain additional actions or even participate in the construction of St. Vitus Cathedral.

Clever players will discover synergies between carefully timed actions and the rewards from constructing civic projects as all of the mechanisms mesh together. At the end of the game, the player who most impressed King Charles wins.
