Basilica is a tile placement, area majority game where each player takes on the role of an architect overseeing the construction of a great cathedral. Players will place tiles to increase the size of the cathedral as well as place their builder pawns on the board in order to control areas to gain points.

The Portal Games reprint of Basilica will contain a revamped game board, custom wooden pieces, and will include the expansion. For more information you can see Ignacy Trewiczek's announcement of the game on the Dice Tower’s Summer Spectacular – Mega Announcement Video.
