Eternal Palace is a highly interactive, medium-weight, dice-placement Euro game from Steven Aramini (designer of Sprawlopolis, Circle the Wagons, and Groves). You are a loyal worker and skilled artist who has pledged to help the emperor rebuild his palace after a devastating earthquake so that you may gain his favor. You must send your team to collect resources and rebuild monuments. You will also honor the emperor by painting a beautiful picture of his beloved gardens and palace. But others are trying to impress him, too, and only one will have the honor of being chosen as the emperor’s favorite.
Contribute to building monuments to earn the favor of the emperor, and claim these monument tokens as a symbol of your hard work. But be aware, the work is ongoing, and if other players then contribute more than you, they will claim these monuments as their own!
In this game, your workers are represented by dice, and you’ll be placing them to contribute toward rebuilding the different parts of the Eternal Palace. This is a highly interactive Euro with many of the locations on the board giving players the ability to gain the edge over their opponents by completing tasks first, or contributing more to monuments to earn tokens reflecting their overall efforts.
While you’re reconstructing the palace, you will also be creating a record of events, with each location offering different painting pieces to collect which you will build, layer by layer, to show a gorgeous recollection of your achievements. Who will contribute the most to the reconstruction and gain the favor of the emperor?
Dice Theme Park
Players: 1–4 • Ages: 14+ • Play time: 75–90 min.
In Dice Theme Park, when you activate your attractions, you’ll pip down the dice that were activated and then move them to an adjacent tile. You can then activate that tile and move the dice again, creating a cascade that can go on as long as you have tiles to activate. This means the more efficiently you can move your dice around to activate the most rewarding rides, the more points and money you receive. It’s combo-tastic!
You’ll be able to customize your park with various upgrades, attractions, and mascot skills. Each game, you’ll create a new park with new combos to explore. Synergies between attraction tiles, mascot skills, upgrades, and administrators will mean that every time you play Dice Theme Park, it’s a new and exciting experience.
