If you like Stone Age, you should give this one a try at our 20% off board game demo night, held every Wednesday at 6 p.m. at Game Universe – West in Milwaukee! RSVP on Facebook or just come by!
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 and, in so doing, score the most victory points. Gameplay roughly consists of 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 are also given three master builders each turn, each of which can do a variety of tasks, including recruiting more workers, buying or selling goods, or just obtaining victory points. Getting early choices with a master builder costs gold, as does purchasing better craftsmen. Players must strike a balance between earning gold to fund their purchases and earning victory points.
We’ll have copies available for 20% off. Bring your friends and family – also makes a great date night!

What Do I Get?
All participants receive exclusive Priest of Urabrask promo card (while supplies last). The Top 8 payers each receive a full-art Myr Superion promo card.
What Does an “Affliated Deck” Mean?
Represent your side and fight for New Phyrexia or the Mirran resistance! Cards in Scars of Mirrodin, Mirrodin Besieged, and New Phyrexia are watermarked with either a Mirran or Phyrexian symbol to represent the card’s affiliation. You can build your Game Day deck to be affiliated with one of the two sides. An affiliated deck must have at least ten watermarked cards from its affiliated faction in its main deck, and no watermarked cards from the opposing faction in its main deck or sideboard. The deck must still be Standard-legal.
