New Edition Of Cleopatra And The Society Of Architects On KS

Cleopatra and the Society of Architects (2006) is a highly regarded game from designers Bruno Cathala and Ludovic Maublanc. Unfortunately, this edition from publisher Days of Wonder has been out of print for some time, and is on many a gamer’s grail list. Well fear no more, for Mojito Studios has announced a Kickstarter project for a new edition of this elusive classic, complete with gorgeous art from Miguel Coimbra. In Cleopatra, players take turns collecting stacks of cards from a market, collecting resources in order to purchase large chunks of the famed Cleopatra’s palace. The Worshipers of Sobek can be enlisted to help, although their bonuses come with a penalty. Accumulated corruption needs to be mitigated during the game with treasure scarabs. In this new edition, not only are the famously overproduced pieces of the palace lovingly redesigned, but the designers have included 2 new expansions, compatible with both the old and new editions. The Cult of Sobek includes Sobek miniatures and player aids, while the Whims of Cleopatra involves a giant die and bonus tiles. An upgraded deluxe edition of the game is also available with magnetic pieces, metal corruption amulets and plastic pyramids to store your accumulated goodies. The Kickstarter for Cleopatra and the Society of Architects continues through May 27, and the game is expected to deliver in March 2020.
