Players Build a town in Ancient Greece in friendly competition with each other. But there is a catch for both architects. Each building has to be surrounded by the appropriate scenery otherwise points are deducted.

|I'm getting to quite like Michael Schats games and perhaps this is another one that I'm going to like. The square tiles come in two flavours, building tiles and landscape tiles. These have to be laid out on the table chequerboard fashion, with alternating building and landscape tiles. Each landscape tile has up to four different terrain types on them and these have to be matched to the terrain types on the building tiles. If you manage to completely surround a building tile with all four sides matching, you gain a point chit. However, if only three sides match, you lose 1 point. If only two sides match, you lose two points and if only one side matches you lose 3 points. There should be plenty of opportunity here of the 'screw-your-opponent' type of play, but from our first play we found that the game was over almost before it had begun but it left us wanting to play again, which is a good sign. It doesn't take long to play, so we feel it would be a nice way to pass 30 minutes while waiting for more players to turn up for the days game session.|
