Introducing Sagrada by FloodGate Games!
What can we say about this game? First has gotta be its stunning beauty and overall design. Like... WOW! Makes us want to visit the real Sagrada Familia in Spain! 🤩
Players are challenged with designing the most beautiful stained glass window using the cutest vibrant little dice. Players roll and “draft” dice in order to fill their entire game board, but it's not as easy as it may seem! 😛
After determining the first player and the player rolls the appropriate number of dice (changes depending on number of players in the game), it's time to start drafting them. The next part gets a bit confusing, but stick with us!
The player who rolled chooses a die and places it on an outer edge of their game board to start their window. The other players follow suit before the first player gets to choose a second die, but here's where it gets tricky:
The second drafted die cannot be placed directly beside the first if it is the same color OR the same number! Not only that, it MUST be placed connected to your first one. (Beside or diagonal) 😲
This may seem simple, but as your board begins to fill up, the spaces in which you can place your new dice begin to decrease (and quite rapidly too!!) 😅
There are even spots on your player board which restrict you to a certain color or specific number; which add to the immense amount of strategy this game provides. 😃
As challenging as this seems, don't worry 😁 There are also tool cards which help manipulate the rules and score in different ways, which help make it easier to reach your end goal as the world's greatest visual architect!
This game was on our list for a very long time, and we couldn't be happier with our purchase.
