Players will be competing to win the favor of Queen Himiko by building the best capital city of Yamatai. You’ll need to use resources from fleets that travel through the kingdom, recruit specialists, and attempt to build prestigious buildings like a high temple or a torii, all to become the best builder.
The game was designed by Bruno Cathala (Shadows over Camelot, Five Tribes) and Marc Paquien. The stunning artwork was done by Jérémie Fleury, who also did the illustrations for Oceanos and the Timeline games.
