Description

Despite earlier attempts, Martin Luther started the Reformation in 1517 with his "Ninety-Five Theses." Luther criticized the selling of indulgences and that the Catholic doctrine of the merits of the saints had no foundation in the gospel.

The "Protestants" soon incorporated doctrinal changes such as Sola Fide ('by faith alone'). The changes were not only theological, but historical factors also played a role in the Reformation. The Roman Catholic Church responded with a Counter-Reformation initiated by the Council of Trent.

In this 2-player game, players attempt to install the Reformation (Protestants) or try to prevent it (Catholics), battling the Holy Roman Empire's Imperial Circles.

Sola Fide is designed by the renowned design team of Jason Matthews and Christian Leonhard, and is designated as #6 in The Great Designers Series.
