Cathedral

My daughter and I played Cathedral, a classic style, 2-player game where players alternate turns placing a building inside the city walls and try to get all of their pieces on the board. It is similar to a modern and popular game called Blockus, although I prefer Cathedral over Blockus. In Cathedral, unlike Blockus, players can place their piece anywhere on the board that they wish, but once they complete a wall that separates a section of the board from areas that have opposing pieces, the player can claim the territory and therefore focus on building in other areas knowing that space is reserved for them later in the game.

There have been multiple sets of Cathedral produced over the years. Some have plastic pieces, some wood, but mine is made of polystone resin. I think the style of the pieces is one of the best in this edition of the game, and I love the feel of the pieces. The Polystone Edition is long out of print, but can still be found on eBay.

"Hello IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again? ... OK, well, the button on the side. Is it glowing?... Yeah, you need to turn it on. Err, the button turns it on. Yeah, you do know how a button works, don't you? No, not on clothes." - Roy (The IT Crowd)
