The Return of the King who was never here

Many readers wrote to say that they do have the chess king at a cost of 2m coins, and it does indeed look like a king. It seems that after I posted last night, someone at ngmoco:) noticed and fixed the mistake. Which means you, my readers, got a rare opportunity to see a building that, technically, doesn’t exist.

The king actually dishes out 625hcp, which isn’t quite as good as the solstice castle (812), but it’s decent. The total points are a little higher (15000cp).

The chess bishop may show up again, so I’m keeping it on the list.

Hidden in the upgrades tab is the unannounced L80 Marvelous Castle. As best I can tell, it can’t even be seen from the friends map. It costs 2m coins, which is as much as a solstice castle and chess king.

In the meantime, on a hunch, I wondered if ngmoco:) has dropped the ball on other publicity moves. We never saw a splash screen announcing a new castle for the upgraded levels, so I checked and, there it is, the Marvelous Castle. This is a complete revision of the castle design, which I assume should help make future castles more space efficient.

    The castle is marvelous, I like this direction of design. But it seems there’s a bug on the Kingdom social map, it never got updated and still stuck with the Dragon Keep. Or is it just me has has this bug?

    Chess King earns 9000c and 11,000xp every 24 hours when orders are completed.

    I prefer the older castles, the old fashioned storybook design. I love the earlier stle like the intricacy of the elf stuff.
