Haven't played the game yet, I've just been thumbing through the rules.
Question:

Is it true that all players essentially start a game with -18 points because in the beginning of the game no one has built on the cathedral?

I think it's -6 per player which is only done at the end of the game not the beginning.

I believe that you get -2 at the end of the game for each level that you didn't construct in. That amounts only to -6 pts if you fail to build at all (-2 per each level/. 3 levels total).

Edit- to be clear, you only need at least one cube in each level in order to avoid the penalty.

How did you get 18 points from?
It's -2 for each Cathedral level you did not contribute and only counts at the end game.
So, maximum you loss 6 points from not contributing to Cathedral construction.

You're right, I meant -36.

...Anyway, I see now that -6 makes more sense (and is more sensible).

modest

Thanks to all for the responses!
