Basilica is a game for two players about building a Gothic cathedral in a medieval city.
The temple is built by laying square tiles adjacent to the board or already built tiles. A modular board (the temple) can be five tiles wide and as long as players can build. Every tile bears one, two, or all four colors and one special action which could be played instead of laying a tile on the board.
The pool of tiles available to players is random, and it is replenished with tiles blindly drawn from a bag.Each of two players has six pawns, called the builders (and a seventh pawn on score track). During the game, players may allocate their pawns on tiles to gain control of areas of certain colors. Later on, the builders can be rearranged by use of special actions (commands) available on the tiles.Meanwhile, some tiles and actions trigger movement of a special pawn, the King. The King moves along the score track and every few steps triggers a scoring phase.
During scoring, each player receives points for the size of each area under her control. The player who scores more points wins.
