Product Description

Yes, it is a competitive strategy game, but many players see Cathedral World as a work of art, a conversation piece, and a teaching aid. Played in the same manner as the award-winning Cathedral game, the newest edition's pieces depict 28 monuments from around the world. The neutral Cathedral piece is replaced by the People Piece. Each opponent tries to fit 14 monuments within the 4 walled perimeters. Using the grid board as a guide, skillful players position the monuments to create inner territories that block their opponent from gaining ground.
