Ora et Labora takes off.

Two tables were playing Ora et Labora last week. Its becoming popular and is highly rated on boardgame geek. The game has won many rewards over the past year. In Ora et Labora, each player is head of a monastery in the Medieval era who acquires land and constructs buildings – little enterprises that will gain resources and profit. The goal is to build a working infrastructure and manufacture prestigious items – such as books, ceramics, ornaments, and relics – to gain the most victory points at the end of the game.  Some spaces start with trees or moors on them, as in Agricola: Farmers of the Moor, so they hinder development until a player clears the land. I never knew monks could be such fun.
