Then I drew this horrific card after I announced I was about to build my last church! Wow! Not only did I lose the opportunity to place 2 automatic cell groups, but this was the ONLY card in the entire EVENT deck that is capable of downgrading a church to cell groups despite having a Deacon protecting it. All the other EVENT cards have explicit measures to counter this disaster. Not this one!
Actually there is another one that has a similar effect, the Pagan Uprising. They hit my girl friend's final church in our last game throwing in in my favour.
Given that she received a nice set of cities, me a lousy set and my church in Gaza got hit by an event whilst I was in Cyrene I was lucky to win. In fact, I had virtually written the game off, but the pagans came to my rescue.
