2 -4 players for the base game, but can be played up to 6 with The Pillars of the Earth: Expansion Set.

Good strategic game, the expansion works well for 6 but also for 2-4 people.

Unfortunately, I think that it's out of print.

Previously #109

Update: Pillars maybe will be replaced by Caylus, for gameplay alone. For now, I like the better developed world of Pillars, and the craftsmen interest me much more than the "packets" of Caylus.


Pillars of the Earth is one of the games that put worker placement on the map. I'm not keen on the way that your workers are drawn from a bag to determine turn order, with the ability to pay to place when drawn. Hiring and managing craftsmen that convert resources to points is quite interesting. I also like the way that events are handled, with the ability to avoid negatives by placing a worker.

There are a great many mechanics at work, with some working better than others. It is very far ahead of its time, though I put it on here because I enjoy playing it, not for history.

Splain time: 7:00pm
Start time: 7:30pm
End time: 9:20pm


With eight gamers available, we (uncharacteristically) took no time at all to figure out that meant two four-player games. Tim had reread the rules to The Pillars of the Earth a couple weeks ago in preparation for EFORP, but we never got around to playing it, so he forced Art, Shawn, and Benjamin to join in.


Astonishingly, it appears that we had never actually played Tim's copy of this game before - the rules were highlighted from ten years ago when he first got it, and he has played the game multiple times, but the cards were still in shrinkwrap, so he must have played somebody else's copy. Zounds!

Anyway, this was one of the first post-Caylus "worker placement" games, although the mechanism for placing a guy before you do a thing is a little more complicated (and controversial). The start player will randomly draw a guy out of a bag, and then you have to pay money to place him, with the money decreasing as the round goes on. So there are two ways to get hosed: your guy might be drawn too early, in which case you can't afford to place him, or your guy might be drawn too late, in which case the spot you want to put him on might already be taken. A lot of people really disliked this mechanism, but, like most bits of randomness in a middleweight+ game, I think people underrate the strategic element it presents. The solution is to be flexible enough to take advantage of your opportunities and to ameliorate your bad luck. It probably won't all even out and you may not be able to overcome your bad luck or your opponent's good luck, but there are still key decisions to be made to hedge your bets - and randomness can provide interesting game states to navigate through that might not otherwise occur.

Anyway, Benjamin built up an engine based on stone, while Shawn did the same with wood. There is an early Woodcarver or something that lets you trade wood for money, which is interesting since most craftsmen just score you points, which Shawn relied on heavily for income. Tim got the early Toolmaker, so he made sure to get the first metal cube from the King so he could earn a couple gold every turn. But with spots for only five craftsmen, it soon becomes tricky deciding whether the extra couple coins are worth the opportunity to run another craftsman for some more points.

That's actually the key decision in the game, as well - what core craftsmen do you dump, and when? It probably makes sense to focus on one resource if you can, so dumping your initial wood guy for a sculptor makes a lot of sense. But because you are fighting for craftsmen all game, and they keep getting better and better, there's a real cost in making such a decision and cutting yourself off from advanced woodworking (or whatever) craftsmen available in the later rounds.

Tim's initial craftsman buy used sand, but the middle rounds saw a lack of sand resource cards come out, so he had to find another way to score points. His solution was to get Prior Philip, which gave an extra point whenever you place a guy on the Priory. Thus, Tim's engine didn't rely so much on craftsmen (and, therefore, goods), but used up one of his guys to score straight points. That left fewer actions to do other things, like get new cards or get extra fellows - instead, he focused on grabbing the King's metal whenever he could, then either going to the market to sell stuff for money or using the Archbishop to avoid an event or get a free resource.

Because Tim had been hording metal all game, he was able to score big in the penultimate round when a glassblower finally became available. But by that point Benjamin and Shawn were scoring almost as much with their synergistic craftsmen, and they were much better set up for the final round, since they could rely on regular resources to score. In addition, Tim was going to go last in the final round, since he couldn't spare a feller to take start player, which meant he wasn't going to have very good options for grabbing resources. Still, he was able to grab one more metal cube and score the Priory, and ended up in the Archbishop's office and hoped for the best.

...which came, in the form of an event that reduced each resource card by one. That devastated Benjamin, who lost two stone and four points, and cost Shawn at least two points worth of wood. More importantly, since Tim was immune, it evened out his last player disadvantage. He was able to score his four stone and one more run of the glassblower, which was just enough to snake the victory from Shawn, 46 to 45. Art ran his last-round metal guy for a big score to finish with 42, while Benjamin wound up with 41.
