Sagrada is a 1-4 player, dice drafting game by Daryl Andrews and Adrian Adamescu which is puplished by FloodGate games. In Sagrada you will be competing to build the most beautiful stained glass window like the ones you would see in an elegant catholic church. This brings me to my first point, Sagrada is one of the most visually appealing games I have ever played. While you are building your window you just want to step back and admire your work much like a crafter would do when he completed his/her stained glass masterpiece.
The eye candy that this game provides is not the only reason I really enjoy it. I really like the use of the public objective cards. With these cards you will be try and complete them by achieving the goal that is displayed. These goals can be placing a variation of colors, numbers and even patterns. What I like most about these cards is that they are seen by everyone and this is where you turn Sagrada from a "group solitaire" game to a fun "take that" style competitive game. You will always need to be aware of what your opponents need in order to block them from precious victory points that can make or break your chances of winning.
I have played Sagrada solo and with multiple players and I have had fun every time I've played. The solo game is extremely difficult to win. I have yet to actually do so but I still enjoy myself every time. This is a game that is a must have for the people that enjoy some strategy. You will have a huge sense of accomplishment when you use your tool cards to rearrange your dice and then your opponents realize you just gained 8 victory points doing so.
There is another card that I have not mentioned yet, that is the private objective card. This card remains hidden and is only seen by you. The private objective cards will provide you with a color and give you points for the number of dice in that color. I like the use of this card because there is just enough lack of information to keep your opponents guessing.
My closing remark for the wonderfully beautiful game is; if you have ever enjoyed a solo game of Yahtzee while sitting in front of the television watching Jeopardy then this is a game for you!
