From the manufacturer
Family Games America
Your peace of mind when purchasing a Family Games' product is extremely important to us. When Family Games America was launched more than twenty years ago, we printed with soy based inks, used recycled materials in production, and all wood used for manufacturing was either surplus wood from furniture factories or farmed trees from re-growth forests. Twenty years later, we are still doing the same.
A Medieval Game of Strategy and Skill
A multi-award-winning strategy game that has been a favourite world wide for over 30 years. Played within a medieval walled city, Cathedral is a top notch strategic game of power and position where rivals strategically battle to place all of their buildings on the gaming field and lay claim to their territory. Victory is your goal.
- Includes 1 board 8.75 x 8.75 x 2.5 inch, 28 wooden buildings, 1 cathedral, and instructions
Cathedral Classic from Family Games is a beautiful version of the popular Cathedral game. To win this classic strategy game, you must battle to gain the most space as you build castles on the game board. If you can block and out-maneuver your opponent at every turn, you'll claim the victory. With its beautifully finished hardwood game pieces, the game looks different every time you play. Cathedral is an elegant game that includes an all-wood game board and castle pieces in a variety of shapes and sizes. Recommended for 2 players ages 8 and up. Board dimensions: 11'' x 3.5'' x 11''. Family Games is committed to selling safe, creative games of the highest quality. Our products are manufactured using environmentally safe and socially responsible methods. All the wood used in manufacturing was either from surplus wood from furniture factories or farmed trees from re-growth forests.
Just as it is in a modern metropolis, space is at a premium in the game of Cathedral. This game is a developer's dream! Cathedral challenges two players to place as many buildings as possible within the walls of a medieval city. There are two sets (light and dark) of hardwood buildings of various sizes. To begin the game, one player places the cathedral on the grid of the walled city. Then the two players vie for the remaining land. Their goal is to place their own buildings while thwarting their opponent's land-grabbing tendencies. If a player can completely surround one of his/her opponent's buildings, that building is removed from the board and the space gobbled up by a different building. The game ends up resembling a puzzle that must be thoughtfully pieced together. The winner is the player whose unplaced buildings would occupy the least amount of space in the city. Fans of chess should enjoy exercising their strategizing muscles on this one. The hardwood board measures 9.25 inches square. --Wendy SlotboomSee all Product description

My older children remembered playing this through the years and were excited to have a complete set again. The younger ones are already hooked on on the game.
Someone reviewed this game and said a cheaper version can be found in blokus, but I disagree as we have both games. Cathedral is smaller, 3 dimensional and takes more foresight to place the pieces (there are fewer pieces so you much choose each one wisely and not try and "make up" a bad placement later).Cathedral is also wood, which just plain feels better when you're playing with it compared to brightly colored, thin plastic tiles. I personally like the 3-D feel and look as I'm gazing down at the game - it gives a different perspective and it feels like your brain is very active while playing.
Someone else mentioned it doesn't have the endless movements like chess does. I guess you could say that, but this game is not chess! You can't compare the two realistically as they are obviously very different. One game of chess can go on for long periods of time. Cathedral usually takes 30 minutes to complete which is ideal for most people and you don't feel bogged down in a game that never seems to end. For children or teenagers (who have a shorter attention span compared to adults) they enjoy this game because it can move quickly and they are often able to play several games in the time it would take to play one good game of chess.
What I like most about Cathedral is that you must plan ahead, you must try and fit the pieces you have in your possession into specific space requirements which allows for critical, logical and abstract thinking all at once.
Worth the money for so many hours of engaging play. It isn't hard to learn but the (short) rule book can be a bit cryptic. I just interpret them the way we decide together and play on!
I have no children but found this game searching for S.T.E.M games to play with my wife or guests. It is a bit like chess in the fact you can plan and predict moves, but with a much more simple learning curve. It should be fine for kids BUT THERE ARE A COUPLE OF SMALL PIECES.
I highly recommend this game!
The price was very reasonable for the quality of the game board and pieces. This game is recommended by me for anyone who wants a game that can be played easily in 15 minutes or so, played with only 2 players, and provides endless options for strategy.
The rules are relatively easy to learn and play proceeds quickly with time for conversation during the game. It is also a game for most any age - elementary on up - a good one to have in your game closet.
Only problem -- because they are wood and not molded plastic (which is nice for a change) the pieces can come apart. We thought at first that the two sides had different pieces because one had come unglued, but we were able to fix it easily once we determined the problem.
All in all, a fun game, even for grownups!
