Solo Spotlight: Teotihuacan – City of Gods
This week's solo spotlight is on Teotihuacan – City of Gods, where you use your worker dice to raise the legendary and breathtaking Pyramid of the Sun. Scoring an 8.0 on Board Game Geek and ranked in the Top 50 Strategy games of all ranked games - this is a great one. However, you don't have to take my word for it... if you want to hear it mangled a few times, why not check out the exceptional Solosaurus podcast #60 where Brandon and guest reviewer Will break it down. It's great, but is it Stomp worthy?!
In Teotihuacan: City of Gods, each player commands a force of worker dice, which grow in strength with every move. On your turn, you move a worker around a modular board, always choosing one of two areas of the location tile you land on: one offering you an action (and a worker upgrade), the other providing you with a powerful bonus (but without an upgrade).
While managing their workforce and resources, players develop new technologies, climb the steps of the three great temples, build houses for the inhabitants of the city, and raise the legendary and breath-taking Pyramid of the Sun in the centre of the city.
Each game is played in three eras. As the dawn of the Aztecs comes closer, player efforts (and their ability to feed their workforce) are evaluated a total of three times. The player with the most fame is the winner.
Players really enjoy the challenge of filtering through all the options in such a relatively short period of time. The variable setup really gets those juices flowing and modifies how the game can be played and won. As expansions are added to the base game, the game continues to even out and become even better. Highly recommended!
