Description
Azteca is a multiplayer game (2-4 players) that simulates the conquest of the Great Valley of Mexico at the height of the Aztec Empire. Each player represents one of the four great peoples of the Valley of Mexico: Aztec, Toltec, Chichimeques or Tepaneques. Each player disputes the lands that make up these rich city states. The situation is further complicated by the terrible rivalry that exists between the gods.

Quetzalcoatl, the god of corn and all those things that make life worth living, is in a life and death (your life/your death!) with Tezcatatlipoca, the terrible god of the volcano who wants to bring chaos and ruin to all. If one or the other becomes ascendant, life in this world either improves or becomes unbearable (literally). Your people can influence the outcome of this heavenly struggle, and if you offer the most sacrifices to Quetzalcoatl not only will this god become ascendant, but he will bestow his favor upon you, making you ruler of The One World. Of course, the offering he most values are the still beating hearts of your victims. To this end, you send your Pochtecas, ambassadors, or commercial agents around the great lake to purchase, either in the slave market or through alliances with minor tribes, the necessary sacrifices. If these "peaceful" means fail, you can always resort to war.

The components are simply superb. The counters come in a variety of shapes and sizes, the map is mounted, resin pyramids and beautiful cards round out the components. The rules are only 12 pages, making it possible to begin play shortly after opening the box.

Contents:
1 Mounted Map
5 Countersheets
Cards
Resin Pryamids
Rules
Dice
