Numerous castles were built in Italy during the Middle Ages. The point always was to defy the enemy at the most attractive sites. A great deal of rocks was needed(for the walls), of strong trees (for the roof structure) and last not least large quantities of grain to feed the workers. The knights could provide these resources by roaming the countryside and trying to gain control of the resources in as many areas as possible. The player who establishes their castles in Castelli at the most attractive sites and thus gains the most victory points will be the winner of the game.
