The idea is to take over as much territory within a medieval town's walls as possible. You do this by placing your various buildings in strategic places within the playing area.
The game itself is made from wood, and the pieces are quite a good size. As such, they are durable and will last ages before any wear and tear begins to show.
I personally found myself quickly becoming bored with the game, as it does not seem to have the endless variety that a game such as chess can provide. The relative movements and strategies you can develop are fairly limited, in that sense.
However, "Cathedral" is different and it is simple. If there are only two players, it makes a quick, fast game to fill a few minutes with. However, should your inclincations be toward longer, more in-depth games, this is not the best of them.
The bonus feature is that the game is very good looking. It's visually appealing enough that it becomes an element of your decor sitting on your coffee table.
I generally evaluate games based on the amount of fun I have per unit of money I had to spend, and I rate Cathedral very highly by that measure. I'm glad I bought it, and I'd happily do it again.
One hint: When you get the game, make a diagram of how the pieces fit into the frame. They'll probably go in more than one way, but trust me, it can take a while to figure it out on your own when you finish playing and want to put everything back into the frame.
This game is alot of fun and quite addictive! It's also pleasing to have a beautifully crafted, high quality wood game. the only problem we had was that one of the pieces was received unglued but that was easily repaired!
I highly recommend this game for folks of all ages!!!!!

My only complant is the game board. the lines are just printed on the game board, not raised in any way to hold game pieces, so they slide around.Published 23 days ago by Thomas M. Uhl
I had actually expected a wooden version of the plastic game I have, meaning, I thought there would be raised squares to fit pieces on where they would stay in place. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
