The pyramids are crumbling, the temples are in ruins and even the nose of the Great Sphinx looks like it may fall of any day now. Cleopatra is one unhappy queen! Now she has called on the members of the Society of Architects to build her a magnificent new palace in Alexandria - with a Pharaoh's ransom to the design that pleases her most.A game of monumental proportions! Cleopatra and the Society of Architects is a fun and engaging family game unlike any you've played before. Inside this box you will find a three-dimensional palace that you race to build against your fellow players.

|A beautiful game that's a bit puzzle-like - you need one of those to get one of those. There is set-collection and placement (a bit like in Princes of Florence). There's a fair bit of interaction and spoiling from others, and the pieces are absolutely gorgeous. It would make a really good game for families where the children are over about 8.|

|This is a gorgeous looking game in which the players are building up Cleopatras palace, which is done in 3D, with the base of the game box itself forming the palace walls.
At first glance the game seems too simple, as each turn a player can either go to the market to get cards to obtain the 5 different resources needed to build or go to the quarry to get the parts of the palace by spending the resources they have. Yet, despite this, there are quite a few decisions to be made and the there is good visual fun in seeing the palace being built up.
The game is not too heavy and is a good family game, you certainly get your moneys worth when it comes to the components.
