Akropolis: Build a prestigious city

Akropolis: Build a prestigious city

Construct the most prestigious Akropolis and develop cohesive districts for your citizens. As you create new buildings, you will expand your city - either spreading out or building up. The higher your stacks of tiles, the more valuable the buildings! Just make sure you don't run out of stone; it's a finite and valuable resource for every architect!

Summer Conventions: We will be providing demos and sales of Akropolis at Origins Game Fair (booth #954), with free scheduled events also available at Gen Con (booth #2109/Hall C).

  • Use the optional advanced variant to challenge players. It adds additional placement rules for another layer of strategy!

1. Choose a tile

Choose one of the available tiles. The further down the line it is, the more stone it will cost to take it!

Pick your tile carefully, as you may be leaving good tiles to your opponents!

2. Expand your city

Add the tile to your city, either expanding it or stacking the tile on top of existing tiles. The higher the stack, the more valuable the buildings!

Each time you cover up a quarry, gain more stone which you can use to buy even more tiles!

3. Score districts

Once all tiles have been placed, score your zones of the same type of buildings. Matching plazas will multiply their points!

Enjoy the optional variant for new scoring rules and a bigger challenge!
