During public festivals, the people of Catalonia build enormous human pyramids. Starting with a large circular base, they stand on each others’ shoulders to create a tower eight levels high, crowned by a small child, before it collapses like a wave. This tradition is the inspiration for Castellers!, designed by Josep M. Allue (Go Cuckoo!, Dixit Jinx) and Dani Gomez (Dragons & Chickens).
Castellers! joins a number of other new titles Devir plans to release in the U.S. this year (see “Spanish Publisher Devir Invades U.S.” and “Devir Licenses Games Workshop Characters for Wacky Racing Game”).
The new game is not related to the 2008 Reiner Knizia game Castellers, also published by Devir.
