Choose your God wisely for there are a lot of dark and powerful entities sleeping deep in the souls of people... You need to summon and empower your master faster than your rivals. So do your best as now is no time to sleep: Recruit followers, perform dark rituals, bribe officials, or inspire an uprising of the angry mob.
In Cult: Choose Your God Wisely, you need to send your trusted priests to the most important locations of the Eternal City. They will fight for influence, cult followers, and other benefits to bring your God victory over the minds and souls of the whole world.
Each turn, players send their priests to chosen locations that are currently accessible to them. As the game progresses, more locations become available. For each location, a winner is determined based on the strength of the priest, but miracles and intrigue cards can dramatically change the outcome of each conflict. The priest who wins the location can use the unique benefit, with other priests getting money instead.
You can win the game in different ways: by building five chapels, by leading the city's mob uprising, or by performing a dark ritual to summon your cult's master — one of eight dark gods.
