The Builders: Antiquity
Product code: AC2427
£17.99 Our Price: £9.99
From the hanging gardens of Babylon to the pyramids of Egypt, and
without forgetting the Greek Parthenon, The Builders: Antiquity —
a standalone card game based on The Builders: Middle Ages — offers a
whole range of challenges to its builders. To face these challenges, you
must put on your foreman clothes. Between hiring workers, managing their
organization, purchasing slaves or tools, and taking out loans, you'll
have to make the right decisions to fulfill your dream: Becoming the
greatest builder the age has ever known.
In the game, players score points (and gain money) by completing the
construction of buildings. Each building has four characteristics —
carpentry, masonry, architecture, painting — rated between 0 and 5, and
the workers have the same characteristics valued in the same range. To
complete a construction, the player must add enough workers to cover the
four characteristics of the building, but placing a worker on a
construction site costs money.
Each turn players have three free actions; however, for an added cost
players may also chose to buy additional actions during their turn.
Unlike in The Builders: Middle Ages, players can acquire slaves
and put them to work, but if they don't pay to free the slaves by the
end of the game, they lose points. Other changes from the original game
include the ability to send your workers to universities or purchase
tools to improve their characteristics.
Make use of your workers, of your slaves, or your freed slaves to build
your buildings and amass victory points to ultimately be named the
greatest builder of all!
