Cover of A Column of Fire - a 16th century sailing ship seen through a stone window openingA Column of Fire

As the box cover proclaims, this game takes Ken Follett's novel of the same name as its inspiration. The novel is the third in the "Kingsbridge" series and both the other books also inspired games from Herr Rieneck. The setting is Elizabethan England and the contemporary religious and political strife across Europe.

It is largely a business game as players establish trading houses in different European countries, using them to sell goods and gain victory points. However, they must watch out for religious strife, prompted by placing those trading houses. This gives players a few things to think about.

The game is played across a number of years, ending at the end of a year when somebody has reached 50 points. There's then a final scoring to find the winner not necessarily the player who triggered the game end.

For 2-4 players, aged 12+, playing time 75 minutes: 35.00 (29.17 without tax outside the EU)
