Description:

Cathedral is a middle ages themed land grab strategy game. Two players compete to place their different shaped buildings within the city's stoned-in walls. One wins the game by acquiring the greatest portion of the city's land.

In Cathedral, each player has a set of pieces of a different color. The pieces are in the shapes of buildings, covering from one to five square units.

The first player takes the single neutral Cathedral piece and places it onto the board. Players then alternate placing one of their buildings onto the board until neither player can place another building. Players capture territory by surrounding areas that are occupied by at most one opponent or neutral building.

A captured piece is removed and captured territory becomes off-limits to the opponent. The player with the fewest 'square units' of buildings that can't be placed wins.

Cathedral is an all-wood game. Blocking your opponent's ability to place pieces is part of the skill required to successfully predominate.
