Castle of Magic: The Card Game

Suggested Price $5.00


Thirty years ago, a group of adventurers journeyed to Castle Bondi to confront a Monster that lurked within. Ultimately, they were able to perform a ritual spell and imprison the Monster.

The adventurers later established a network of twenty-seven shrines to channel the magical energies required to ensure that the Monster could not escape.

Recently, three rival factions of wizards discovered how to corrupt the shrines. As a result, the spell that binds the monster has begun to falter.

Now wizards from the three factions have come together to use the shrines to banish the monster. If they fail, they risk releasing the Monster from its prison and being devoured as it rampages.


Castle of Magic: The Card Game is a game for 4-6 players that can be played in 30-60 minutes. It is intended for players  who are at least 12 years old.

During the game, you will assume the role of a wizard who will try to use the shrines to banish the Monster. You will have a set of secret objectives based on what faction you belong to and what country you are from.

To accomplish your objectives, you will manipulate the twenty-seven shrines. Whether you accomplish each of your objectives will depend on the state of the shrines at the end of the game.

The game will end when you cast the ritual spell. The fate of the Monster will depend on which version of the ritual spell you cast.

Your score will depend on how many of your objectives you accomplish. The players with the highest scores will win the game.


This game is a modern reimagining of a classic board game called Castle of Magic. The original game was designed by Rick Smith and published by Cloud Kingdom Games (formerly known as RiddleMaster Games) in 1991.

Castle of Magic: The Card Game is an original design that aims to maintain the flavor of the original while simplifying it for a more streamlined experience.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
