Akropolis by Gigamic and Hachette BoardGames Coming Soon


Hachette Games and Gigamic announced the upcoming tile placement game Akropolis will be coming to the US on July 1st 2022.

"Construct the most prestigious Akropolis and develop cohesive districts for your citizens. As you create new buildings, you will expand your city - either spreading out or building up. The higher your stacks of tiles, the more valuable the buildings! Just make sure you don't run out of stone; it's a finite and valuable resource for every architect!"

Gameplay Overview

Take on the role of an architect and build your own akropolis in ancient Greece. Try to construct districts of similar buildings and stack them high to increase their value. Add plazas as multipliers for even more points!

Each turn, choose an available tile and add it to your city. The further down the construction site the tile is, the more stone you'll need to pay to take it. Immediately add the tile to your city, either expanding outward or stacking higher.

Once all tiles have been drafted and placed, score your zones of the same type of buildings according to their unique rules. Matching plazas will multiply their points!
