THE ROAD TO CANTERBURY (Eagle-Gryphon Games, 2-3 players, ages 14 and up, 45-60 minutes; $79.99)
Greed, Pride, Gluttony, Lust, Sloth, Wrath and Envy. If those Seven Deadly Sins haven’t piqued your interest, then you haven’t been paying attention! In this Alf Seegert design, inspired by Geoffrey Chaucer’s famous Canterbury Tales, players will have to deal with those sins. Now, where there is sin, there is also a need for pardon. Players assume the roles of “pardoners”, using fake relics as necessary, to absolve religious pilgrims of their sins – but with an ulterior motive. Money is collected for these pardons. To win, players compete to make the most money while travelling along The Road to Canterbury.
