How do castles work? Are they more powerful than any men? If so, how do you destroy an enemy castle since they cost nothing per turn?

Castles protect themselves and the hexagons around them at the same strength as a spearman - so you need a knight or baron to capture a hexagon next to them or to knock down the castle itself.

Well, castles ARE maybe too strong, since they sost nothing after you build them. Only they cant attack.
The biggest advantege is that they are the only one left alive if your soldiers "die from hunger".

The biggest disadvantege is that they become too weak when knights come.

Their biggest weakness is that they don't move.

It would be kinda cool if castles could attack within a small range.
My thanks and best regards to all my former submitters.

Castles rule!

They're not all that useful against the AI since the
AI is so dumb. Against humans they're essential for
survival in the midgame, until the provinces are big
and the knights come out. Even after that it is
still an effective trench warfare tactic to build
a castle forest. (I do think that castles should
cost $1/turn, though.)

Some countertactic to beat the castle forest needs to be developed.

There has been.

Build your own castle forest to block the enemy castle forest.
Or use peasants with one space to stop the forests expanding.
