Product Description

Monastery is a tile-laying game where the players construct different parts of a medieval monastery. The monks may move from tile to tile and in addition to building work they can also study, toil or pray. In the 'icon' game monks can also make use of the special properties of some of the tiles.

The tiles vary in value ranging from 1 point field and path tiles to 5 point Chapter House and Library. The higher the value of tile the more monks are needed to build it. Players can build independently, but often they are required to work collaboratively.

The game spreads over two days of monastic life, with turns being allocated as time for study and toil or for services in the abbey. At each service a new abbot is elected and apart from going first in the turn the abbot also has some significant powers.

In order to win the game players must collect the letters of the abbey’s motto 'Libera Nos Quaesumus Ab Omnibus Malis Amen'. The letters become progressively more expensive and players must decide whether to buy letters or recruit extra monks.

Points at game end are also awarded for the 'blessings' which players can collect throughout the game.

Contents: 53 tiles, 20 monk figures, 1 monastic hours dial, 20 Blessing tokens, 4 illuminated screens, letter grid, cloth bag
