#167: The Red Cathedral



Fun fact: The Red Cathedral isn’t really a cathedral at all, it’s a sobor, which isn’t really the same thing. Also fun fact: Unsurprisingly, Mark is wrong to say that Fenrir will swallow the moon at the end of the world, as that is patently absurd. Fenrir swallows the sun, which makes perfect sense. Except, of course, for renditions where Fenrir’s children Skoll and Hati swallow the moon and sun respectively. I guess we’ll have to wait and see who got it right. We value editorial rigour here at SVWAG.

37:51: Feature Game: The Red Cathedral (Israel Cendrero & Sheila Santos, Devir Games, 2020)

I haven’t heard of Lancaster for quite a while now. I remember that it’s a pretty good game.

Should play Lancaster again, it was pretty good. The laws, and the voting on them, was a fairly unique mechanic.

Friends of ours have it, I remember playing with them… but it’s been a looong time.

Thingvellir sounds like it may not be for me, I never won any auctions :wink: But it might also interrupt the purple train of @lalunaverde. I know myself though: I am going to get it anyway.

The bad news: I fell asleep during the feature game. The good news: I fell asleep earlier than usual. So I know more about the history of the Cathedral now than I know about the game.

I think I need to play Blood Rage again.
