As a priest of the City of Uxmal, your mission is to build a pyramid!

Working with the other priests, decorate the pyramid with the most popular idols of the moment and you will collect renown points. Keep an eye out, as the popularity of idols changes as time goes on!

What’s in the box?

  • Game board
  • Scoreboard
  • 29 Pyramid tiles
  • Five Idol tiles
  • 45 Idol cards
  • 16 Priests

How to play:

On your turn, you must do one of the following four actions:

Place a tile on the board: take a tile from the stock and place it on the board. Placing tiles will bring you Idol cards.

Place a priest on one of the pyramid tiles: you can place 1 of your available priests on one of the pyramid tiles. Choose 1 of the 3 Idols on the tile and place your priest on it.

Move one of your priests: to move a priest that is on the pyramid, you need to use the Idol
cards. For each space the priest moves, you’ll need to discard one card.

Honour or Curse an Idol: You can influence the popularity of Idols by honouring or cursing them. If an Idol is honoured, increase their popularity rating on the scoreboard by moving them one space towards the 1. If they are cursed, they lose popularity and should be moved one space towards the 5.

After each phase, the number of accumulated status points for each player must be counted. Use the points pyramid on the scoreboard to count your status points. Only the cards in your possession that correspond to Idols in squares 1 and 2 win 2 and 1 bonus points respectively per card.

The game ends once phase 3 is complete. Carry out one last point scoring. The player who has collected the most status points wins the game!
