'CATHEDRAL' BOARD GAME: This game is based on the concept of a Mediaeval City surrounded by a wall. The board, divided up into a hundred squares, represents the site of the city enclosed by the wall. The two sets of pieces - light coloured and dark coloured - symbolise the buildings and the two opposing forces struggling to gain power and hence dictate the way in which the city will develop. Then there is the Cathedral: the focal point of the city; the place of sanctuary which mediates in the struggle and helps to prevent one side from becoming too powerful and thus allows the city to develop in a more orderly manner. There is still much to learn about cities and the forces which shaped them. Who knows what secrets lie hidden within this simple game waiting to be discovered.



Almost unbelievably, this is incredibly rare and stunningly presented game has not been removed from its factory wrapping - it is still sealed. Save for a small puncture in the box lid, the game is in flawless condition. Both the board and components are made from solid, high quality new New Zealand wood (this edition having been manufactured there) and are varnished or stained (depending on the type of playing piece) to perfection. 

It is not an over-exaggeration to say that this is quite simply a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to secure an example of this exceptionally rare and beautiful game in new condition.

For 2 players.


Please note: the pictures displayed are from a different game also for sale. Rest assured that this example remains factory sealed and therefore unopened.
