Description Edit | History

One player tries to erect a cathedral, while the other is in charge of building a fortress, an element that also seems to be part of the book; the one who succeeds first in erecting his building has won the game.

Each of the two buildings consists of three sections/cards; each of those sections require a different combination of materials. Action cards enable players to get to construction materials; other action cards upgrade these materials, such as iron into bells, sand into cement or wool into cloth.

(From the Nuremberg preview at Gamepack.nl.)

18 Card Errata - Unofficial
An unofficial errata sheet, containing what I believe to be the most accurate English translations of five cards. No graphics are present; the intent is for an owner of this game to print this file, trim along the outlined square, and include this sheet with her set.

26 English Card Paste-Ups w/ Matching Graphics
Print this file at 100% and apply it to your Duell der Baumeister cards to have an English set of cards. If you apply directly to the cards like I do, I recommend sleeving the cards to protect the labels from catching when you shuffle.
