Monumental Moves (Cathedral World) The Global Game of Strategy and Skill
[Item 3925]


Imagine…a utopian global village, with 32 building structures from around the world…In the game of Monumental Moves (based on the game Cathedral), the Great Wall of China, the West Wailing Wall, the Wall of Marrakech and the Zimbabwe Ruins define the space where two opposing players vie for territory in which to strategically position their 14 architectural playing pieces. Whichever piece or pieces cannot be placed back within the village boundaries, determines the winning player. The “People Piece” represents citizens from all four corners of the globe and is surrounded by buildings, monuments, statues, temples and mosques. Depending on the player’s skill level and strategy plan, it can be used as either a neutral, or an extremely pivotal piece, changing the direction of play at every move. Based on the award-winning Cathedral game, this captivating edition is a winning mix of culture, architecture, history, strategy and skill. Once play has ended, lift the global village to eye-level, turn it slowly to view the skyline and IMAGINE… 2 players, age 8+ Includes: 1 polystone playing board, 28 playing pieces, 1 "People Piece" & instructions
