Monuments Super Deluxe KS Edition
You lead a civilization, and it is your mission to build your monument! The player who is the first to build all five layers of Machu Picchu, Tikal, the Colossus of Rhodes or the Pyramids will trigger the end of the game, but only the player with the most victory points will win! Conquer lands, produce goods, populate, train military units, build buildings, move your units, upgrade your action cards, trade, attack other players, draw quest cards and build your monument!
Gameplay in Monuments flows easily. You either play one of your ten action cards and execute its single action, then discard it, or pick up all previously discarded action cards and add them to your hand. The first player to complete their monument triggers the end of the game, then points are awarded for the monument, workers, areas controlled, military power, resources controlled, upgraded cards and uncompleted and completed quest cards. Each player has a score modifier, their own deck of bonus cards, and an ability in addition to the starting position of their civilization in order to make every game a totally new one!
Monuments is a civilization game for 1 to 4 players aged 10+. It's played in 1 to 2 hours.
It is your goal to build your Monument as fast you can, but you can’t neglect your empire and your people. The game ends after the round in which one player finishes their Monument, but only the player with the most Victory Points wins the game!
For extensive game play overview, please find video reviews, gifs, the rules and other resources below, but in short, this is how Monuments is played:
Each player has the same set of 10 action cards, which can be upgraded over the course of the game for superior actions.
On your turn, either play an action card from your hand, perform the action on it, and then discard the card, OR take all discarded cards back on hand.
Because the majority of action cards are very simple and straight forward (move 2 units, produce on 2 hexes, add a worker to the board, etc), game play is very fast and smooth and downtime between turns is minimal.
Monuments sets itself apart by the XXL models of up to 15 cm (6 inch) (!) tall, and the amazingly detailed artwork on the game board.
Monuments comes with a large 80x65 cm (31.4 x 25.6 inch) game board with no less than 143 6x6 cm (2.36 inch) hexes. Each hex has unique detailed artwork. Here is an example of Europe:
You can choose between the standard retail edition, the Deluxe edition, or the Deluxe edition with Super Deluxe resources. Here is a comparison:
We are currently still developing the Deluxe game trays. When backing Deluxe or Super Deluxe, you will receive:
- A base custom plastic insert that stays in the box and holds everything not needed during play
- 4 custom plastic player trays that can be removed from the box. Place them in front of you and start playing!
- 2 custom plastic resource trays that can be removed from the box. Place them in between players.
With these trays, setup and cleanup will go fast, and you always have your components handy organized in front of you.
We hope to provide you with more work in progress pictures as the campaign progresses!
