That toward Caunterbury wolden ryde.

We delve into the history and literary legacy of one of England's most famous cities by exploring two board games: Canterbury and The Road to Canterbury.

In Canterbury, players are Saxon lords in the Dark Ages building the city district by district. In The Road to Canterbury, players are pardoners accompanying Chaucer's pilgrims, tempting them into sins which only you can absolve... for a price.
