1 – 4 Players, 30 – 45 Minutes playing time, Ages 14 and up. Craft the best stained-glass windows by carefully placing colorful transparent dice. Sagrada scores in the mid 7’s on Board Game Geek, but more importantly sits happily within the Top 10 Abstract game and is within the Top 20 Family games. As a dice placement game, it is relatively simple to learn, but looks so good on the table. The dice are colorful and the entire game plays relatively quickly, pivoting off of dice drafting, matching colors with numbers that cannot be next to each other – quick, but with a lot of strategy. There are even built-in tools to assist in offsetting bad dice rolls. Solo player friendly, the in-the-box rules have the solo player pit against a target score. While that may seem simple, hitting the target score is actually very difficult, and is really fun if the solo player enjoys puzzles or as a quick game between other, longer games or on a work night.

How to Play:
Draft dice and use the tools-of-the-trade in Sagrada to carefully construct your stained glass window masterpiece.
In more detail, each player builds a stained glass window by building up a grid of dice on their player board. Each board has some restrictions on which color or shade (value) of die can be placed there. Dice of the same shade or color may never be placed next to each other. Dice are drafted in player order, with the start player rotating each round, snaking back around after the last player drafts two dice. Scoring is variable per game based on achieving various patterns and varieties of placement…as well as bonus points for dark shades of a particular hidden goal color.
Special tools can be used to help you break the rules by spending skill tokens; once a tool is used, it then requires more skill tokens for the other players to use them.
The highest scoring window artisan wins!
