Travel back in time to build the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan: City of Gods!
Teotihuacan is a worker placement strategy game that employs the rarely seen rondel mechanic. Players control workers represented by dice that can only move around a modular board in a cyclical manner. They help you gather resources, develop technologies, worship the gods and build up the legendary Pyramid of the Sun.
Once a die levels up to 6, it ascends and grants the player lucrative benefits. Planning ahead to ascend your workers at the best times, and thus optimising your gains is one of the main draws of the game.
Teotihuacan is extremely repayable due to the modular set-up system where each component can be randomised. This provides a vast range of options and different experiences every time you play the game. In addition, each path to victory feels equally rewarding, allowing you to try different strategies to win the game.
Fans of medium-weight strategy games should definitely try the unique gameplay mechanics in Teotihuacan: City of Gods!
