THE RED CATHEDRAL (Devir, 1 to 4 players, ages 10 and up, 80 minutes; $34.99)
It’s good to be King. Or, in this case, Tsar! For Tsar Ivan the Terrible has ordered the construction of a church (which would later be known as St. Basil’s Cathedral) to celebrate his victories in the mid-16th century. Such an undertaking will take decades but no matter. In this game designed by Sheila Santos and Israel Cendrero, you – and your competing fellow architects – will take on the task, combining talents – but with an eye to to earning the most Prestige Points – while building the spectacular church colloquially known as The Red Cathedral.
