It's the first promo I've ever seen that you don't actually need to buy to play. You can just read the rules, and decide if you want to use them. That's a bit odd. Still, it's a neat rule to include sometimes.

A fine promotional expansion.

Capitol tends to not have a great influence on the game, but the occasional modified source of points can be pleasant.

Expands scoring possibilities on base game boards with Harbor and Oracle. One castle on each board is replaced with capitol, and each settlement within 2 spaces adjacent to capitol scores.

Simple elegant addition gives an additional way of getting points. Nice way to spice up the basic game. In a 2-player game, it probably forces both players to try to get near the capitol to roughly split its points; if only 1 dominates it, it's worth potentially big points.

Hey this is a good change of pace that is almost like a 4 objective card for the game. Great expansion that not too over powered. I would use it from time to time.

Hátránya, hogy aránylag nehezen kerül elő a hivatalos szabály szerint. Igazából eddig nem sikerült megfejtenem, miért. De amúgy érdekes színt visz a játékba. Egész sok pontot össze lehet lapátolni a capital körül.

The Capitol is a nice variant on the standard castle. It opens up more opportunities to score. While not essential, it is nice to have something extra when drawing the Oracle and Port maps.

A nice mini-expansion. Doesn't add any complicated rules, so that's a plus. However, it doesn't bring anything extraordinary either. It's just a cute and non-essential element.

A neat addition, but only if you're not playing with Nomads.

If you have boards without the regular cities on it (like the nomad tiles), it replaces a fun and competitive mechanic with one that's more open and less interactive. It also makes each city even more important since you can easily get a lot more points than 3 with it.

An expansion for Kingdom Builder with limited usability, because it can only be used when the Oracle or Port tiles are in play. Still, the game profits from any expansions that increase its replayability, so I am still happy to include it in all of my games in which these conditions are met!

Capitol is basically another way to score points in Kingdom Builder. They take place of a few castles and score points by building around them, and they score per settlement. Definitely adds a little more strategy when deciding when to build. It's not something I play with all the time, but it is a solid promo/mini expansion.
