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!

1 – 4 Players, 90 – 120 Minutes playing time, Ages 12 and up. Use your worker dice to raise the legendary and breathtaking Pyramid of the Sun. Teotihuacan: City of Gods scores in the 8’s on Board Game Geek and is in the top 50 Strategy games out of all rated games – remarkable! This game is a bit on the crunchy side, meaning the rules do take some time to get familiar with, but once a few plays are thru the game really begins to hum. Players appreciate the brilliant design and beautiful illustrations, and it keeps things moving which really increases variability for play after play. Category: Ancient. Manufacturer: NSKN Games. Game Mechanics: Area Movement, Point to Point Movement, Rondel, Set Collection, Solo / Solitaire Game, Tile Placement, Variable Player Powers, Variable Setup, Worker Placement, and Worker Placement with Dice Workers.

    I’ve played Teotihuacan many times prior to the pandemic, but never owned a copy… so now was as good a time as any. This is a fantastic game, on par with Tzolkin, which shouldn’t be a surprise given they are both by Daniele Tascini. Very cool mechanics relating to dice movement and “leveling up” your workers… plus you get to build a pyramid!
