Sagrada (Solo Option)


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.

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 score wins!

Solo Play

Sagrada comes with a Solo version included in the box. The solo version can be hard to beat.

To make the game easier or harder to play, several fan versions have been created.

The solo automa version by dukefanblue2005 (in BoardGameGeek) is one of the more popular options.

The following videos go over the components, how to play, and how score the game at the end.
