Copan: Dying City is a heavy Eurogame for 1 to 4 players with both worker-placement and tile-placement mechanisms. The game features a reversed difficulty curve because when play begins, resources are plentiful, making most actions easy to accomplish. However, all resources are finite. When they reach critical levels, they trigger potentially devastating events, and once they run out, they're gone forever. Every move you make impacts the rest of the game, both for you and other players, as Copan's inevitable fate looms.
Take a trip with Brody to Copan, shining jewel of the Maya civilization, and learn how to play this new heavy eurogame from Holy Grail Games.
