BGWS 021 – Cleopatra and the Society of Architects

Cleoptra and the Society of Architects is a light strategy game about collecting sets of cards and placing buildings strategically for the most points. (24:14)

On this week’s episode, Scott Nicholson talks about the Days of Wonder game, Cleopatra and the Society of Architects. This game has some of the best components in a board game and is about building structures to please Cleopatra. Players visit the market to collect resources, and then visit the quarry to build the plastic buildings. Corruption lurks around every corner to lure players to play more powerful cards, but the player with the most corruption is tossed to Cleopatra’s crocidiles!
