This sounds like a really nifty and interesting take on Pandemic. As you say, there are now a lot of Pandemic variants, but honestly that's more of an argument for one more, since it's hitting an area that not only is not currently covered but is almost never covered. Similar to Carcassone: Ark of the Covenant, which was also a very good Carc variant.

The very cynical side of me thinks I could retheme any decent boardgame to cash in on (from my own experience at least) christians buying media that validate and reinforce their own perspective.

We see this mainly in the book, music, and movie industry where some media of questionable quality rises to the top of that genre simply because of the religious subject matter. Boardgames already suffer from this, and as Wade noted, nearly always have a poor showing.

Who knows, maybe a religious theme will finally give Dominion a decent and plausible thematic home.

Outside of my cynicism, based on your review, I bet I could play this as a non-sectarion and enjoy the game with the theme. It seems almost like a historical euro that happens to have a smidgeon of religion.

I've actually enjoyed playing this on Steam.
