WATCH: How to Play – Sagrada

Join host Becca Scott as she breaks out some of the best boardgames the industry has to offer every week here on Geek & Sundry!

We love Sagrada. In fact, we called it one of the best games of 2017. In that feature article, where we talk about why we love this game so much, the elegant play is  outlined by writer Ruel Gaviola:

“Players are artists trying to build the most beautiful stained glass window, represented by their individual player boards. During each round players draw multicolored dice from a bag, roll them, and take turns placing dice onto their boards. Dice may be adjacent to any other dice, but they must follow two rules: they cannot be orthogonally adjacent (in the same row or column) to a die of the same color or number. 

“The straightforward turns make it a breeze for players to get used to the game flow and what looks like a simple game turns out to be a light brain-burner of a puzzle. As players enter the mid to late rounds, there are fewer spaces available, making it more difficult to find the most optimal location for the dice.

“Thankfully, there are three community tool cards that can be used to break the rules of the game, whether it’s exchanging, rerolling, or changing the pips on the dice. Players have limited use of these cards, though, so they’ll still need to rely on their wise choices during each round.”

Learn the ins-and-outs of how to play this game by watching Becca in the video above! And be sure to tune in every week to catch a new How to Play video with Becca Scott.
