Basilica is an abstract tile-laying game for two players offering strong player interaction and a wonderful historical setting.
A basilica that is unlike anything the world has ever seen is being built in Florence. Not one, but two architects are working on it. The first received this task from the queen, the second - from the bishop of the diocese. Which of them will design a larger part of the temple, thus gaining fame and wealth?
In this two-player, dynamic game you are faced with a lot of meaningful crunchy tactical decisions as you duel with your opponent. On your turn, you perform three actions: adding new tiles to the play area, placing your Builders to contest the territory, and making one-time orders to influence the game. But beware of your opponent - they can copy your action outside their turn by paying its cost.
In this new edition of Basilica, you will find a mini-expansion - Festum Fatuorum, which adds special Basilica tiles and Altar tokens to the game.
Who came up with the thought of two architects designing the same basilica? That’s how it ends when you have a dispute with a bishop, but you don’t want to attack the Church ... By the way, it turned into a small competition. The one who builds the greater part of the temple will be rewarded. Profusely rewarded…
