60 minutes / ages 10+ / solitaire
In Castle Itter, you take control of a makeshift force that is defending a medieval castle nestled in the Austrian countryside from a Waffen-SS assault. The force consists of an American tank crew and infantrymen, Wehrmacht infantrymen, a former SS officer, French prisoners, and an Austrian resistance fighter.
Object of the Game
The goal of Castle Itter is to last until reinforcements from the 142nd Infantry Regiment arrive. In the game, this is represented by playing through a deck of SS cards.
I am looking for blind playtest groups. You can test the game using the print-and-play file links provided below or by trying the game on Tabletop Simulator.
