AKROPOLIS: My Big Fat Greek Building!

Post by DrClick »


Build your Greek city on multiple levels to keep your districts perfectly placed!
This game has been released not so long ago and already won multiple distinctions worldwide, such as the french Cannes As d'Or in February.
That is why you definitely should try it!

The goal is pretty simple:
The most talented architects in ancient Greece stand ready to achieve building the most beautiful city. Build housing, temples, markets, gardens and barracks, so you can grow your city and ensure it triumphs over the others. Raise its prestige with harmonious planning that conforms to specific rules, and enhance it by building plazas.

Stone is an essential resource, so make sure you do not neglect it. You will need enough quarries so you can build higher up, making your city stretch towards the sky.

- Choose a tile from the construction site
- Arrange it in your city to unlock each district's full potential
- Build on higher levels to increase the value of your districts and win the game

That is all you need! And more: you can learn the game by playing the included tutorial!

Click right below to go to the game page and discover everything about this game:

We would love to thank all of the Gigamic team members, and of course Jules Messaud, the game designer, for their authorization to bring this amazing game to Board Game Arena.
A game on BGA means there are developers behind it, to make it happen!
And it is all up to the very well-known team composed of Tisaac and thoun that it has been possible. Thanks to them for their (again) impressive efforts to have the game on time and working so well on most devices. Do not forget that bugs can happen, and that you can use the bug report page to inform the developers about them. (But remember that a bad day is not a bug by itself. Or at least, we cannot fix this kind of issue! ;) )

That's it for your Wednesday Release Time!
Next week, there will be... Lights and people. Or people and lights. Nothing related to the Statue of Liberty. Or is it?

Anyway, thanks for reading, and don't forget:
Take care and play fair!

Very fun little tile placement game. O yes, and good job on Flanders, I had to search for a while.

There is one typo in the announcement: 'The goial is pretty simple'.

I just started noticing Flanders in all the new game images. Out of curiosity, why is he included?
