Do you know how a Cardinal becomes a Pope? Most people do not know what happens behind the walls of the Vatican during the election of a Pope.
Now you can know how Cardinals become Pope.
Stephen Haliczer, a retired historian from Northern Illinois University who specializes in Catholic history, has developed a board game, Vatican: The Papal Election Board Game that teaches what happens during the election of a Pope.
The Vatican Board Game follows six cardinals through their early careers as they build their reputations. The games also deals with the death of a Pope and the conclave to elect his successor. The game seems to be a theological version of Monopoly.
