You also have to adapt to the King’s wishes and think about the arrangement of the rooms (be careful not to put the kitchen near the bedrooms).
Observe your opponent’s castle and adapt your strategy according to their needs. Do they absolutely need a staircase in their construction ? Apply a high price on this tile when it will be your turn to set the prices.

It is up to you to make the right choice and to build the most amazing castle !
