Create the best pyramid design and win the title of Master Architect!

Welcome to the Pharaohs Court, architects! The Pharaoh is planning his legacy and voyage to the afterlife. Show him that you are the most skilled architect by making the best pyramid design, and you will be appointed Master Architect and win the game!

Ancient Architects is a 2-4 player, pyramid "building" family game, where players compete to make the best pyramid design:

o Use the right stones
o Make burial chambers accessible
o Decorate with symbols of the gods
o Assign a balanced workforce

During the game you gain crucial experience (cards) that provides you with special actions and/or abilities. As each card is unique, each play provides a fresh, asymmetric challenge to all players.
