Akropolis is an award winning, tile placement, city building board game for 1 to 4 players. It has a simple play style and is suitable for ages 8 and over with a playtime of around 30 minutes per game.

Premise and Gameplay

The game is set in Ancient Greece and the players are architects competing to build the most glorious city. This is done by placing interlocking tiles either adjacent to each other or on top of each other on a turn by turn basis so your city grows both horizontally and vertically.

The tiles feature plazas (that have a star value) and vistas (markets, temples, parks, barracks) which have bonuses attached depending on how they are played in relation to each other.

The tiles are purchased using stone as a commodity and players acquire stone each turn by the number of quarries that they they have in their tiled city.

Players continue to purchase and place tiles onto their city until they have all been used up and then each city is scored by multiplying the number of stars on each plaza by the number of matching coloured vistas. as you'd expect, the player with the most points is the winner.

The game has a lightweight mechanic so is very easy to play from the start. There is no demanding knowledge required to place the tiles but with all good games, there is a hidden amount of tactical depth which demands replaying multiple times.

Excellent service. When it seemed the universe had decided I was not to receive my package, Sammy defied nature itself to ensure it arrived and I even got a badge. Couldn’t be happier. The artwork arrived well packaged and is beautiful; exactly as described.

This shop is fantastic - not just for the quirky and unique items that won't be found elsewhere but the service too (really friendly and attentive). I was looking for a special present but left with several, which were all massively appreciated.
