May The Gods Be Forever In Your Favor

Originally published in 2012, The Great Zimbabwe was met with enormous success and sold out within the first few months. Now it’s back for a reprint. Inspired by the stone city of the Great Zimbabwe—a UNESCO World Heritage Site—this logistico-economic game pits players against each other in an effort to please the gods. Players are tasked with constructing impressive monuments to honor one of the 12 gods of their choosing, each of which offers different special abilities to spice up gameplay. Building monuments involves developing a network across the region by buying technology, improving craftsmen, and gathering resources.

Note: Because this is a preorder and is not released yet, the game will not ship until October.
