Engines of War

Available Now

The third expansion to Castle Panic!

Engines of War introduces a light economic mechanic to the world of Castle Panic. The Engineer uses new Resource cards to build Catapults, Ballistas, Barricades, and more to better defend the Castle from the growing Monster threat.

They charge into battle with a Siege Tower, War Wagon, and a Battering Ram. And they’ve enlisted the help of a Shaman, Breathtaker, and Goblin Saboteurs. Prepare your forces! The fight just added Engines of War!

(Engines of War requires Castle Panic to play.)
