Teotihuacan city of gods is a strategic game of worker and resources management, clever planning and adaptability. Each player commands a Group of worker dice which move around locations on a modular board. With each move a player relocates one worker to a new location, always choosing one of its two areas to perform an action (and upgrade their workforce), or a powerful bonus (but no upgrade). as the mysterious Twilight of teotihuacan approaches, players research technologies, raise the magnificent pyramid of the sun, build houses for the inhabitants of the city, collect precious masks, and climb the steps of three great temples to secure bonuses granted by the favour of the gods.

This has a great solo variant and the variable board dynamics keep the game fresh and this game surprised me a little with how fun it is to play. The aging worker dice and multitude of tile options are engaging.

Teotihuacan: City of Gods feels like a distinct but alternate take on Tzolk'in. While I didn't find this spiritual sequel nearly as novel, fun, or engaging, as it's older brother, City of Gods still maintains those qualities in its own right.Teotihucan plays quickly and is strategically deep. That is a potent combination that many of the best European style games feature. Decisions matter greatly in this game and your score will inevitably suffer if you lack planning and are failing to adapt to how your opponents can minorly affect your puzzle. The biggest downside to Teotihuacan, is that turn execution has a few too many variable steps and requires a great deal of game upkeep. Relevant strategic information is also quite obfuscated and some actions, like placing pyramid tiles for example, can introduce an unwelcome amount of downtime. Fortunately for Teotihuacan, the game's impressive mechanisms and above average level of theme, make this title worth owning.
