Based on the novel by Ken Follet. At the beginning of the 13th century, construction of the greatest and most beautiful cathedral in England begins. Players are builders who try to contribute the most to this cathedral’s construction by using workers to produce raw materials, and then using craftsmen to convert the materials into victory points. Workers may also be used to produce gold, the currency of the game. Players also utilize three master builders each turn, who can gain bonuses, but cost a lot to get early choice of the available options.
