So many of you joined our contest, but the winners are only two. Congrats to Gianni D. and Gianfiore T.!
Come and admire Cleopatra’s Palace, the wonder built by the architects to honor the greatness of the timeless Queen of ancient Egypt.
The Queen is revealed. Everyone was able to admire her and the Palace built in her honor.
With Mojito, the Queen arrives in Nuremberg! If you want to admire her, you’ll find her at the Hall 10.1 Stand E-05!
Sobek, the great and revered god with the head of a crocodile, protector of the waters and fertility, will use his power to defend you from the crocodile’s jaws. But you must prove to deserve his benevolence and build an immense statue in his honor!
If you build a Sanctuary inside the Palace’s Gardens, Anubis, the god worshiped by the ancient Egyptians, will take upon himself the weight of your corruption. So maybe you will avoid a horrible end in the belly of the crocodile!
And here Cleopatra, the great Queen of Egypt, comes! With a sure and elegant step, she heads towards the Palace that the Architects have created for her.
We are really excited to announce that Cleopatra and the Society of Architects: Deluxe Edition by Bruno Cathala and Ludovic Maublanc will be on Kickstarter on April 1st.
While waiting, here you are the TEASER!
If you missed the first edition of Cleopatra and the Society of Architects in 2006, now you will be able to have this wonderful game in a renewed graphic made by Miguel Coimbra, a worldwide famous artist.
If you already have the old edition, don’t worry, we thought about you too!
Cleopatra and the Society of Architects: Deluxe Edition has updated rules that, without changing too much the old mechanics, make the game more fluent, balanced and less affected by luck. You will be able also to get two new expansions that will make the game even more fun and exciting than before. There will be a lot of stretch goals and some add on that will make the game even more playable and will offer a fantastic sensorial pleasure.
Get excited with us and stay tuned!
This is not April Fools… the Queen is back!
When the Palace will be finally finished, the Queen will sit on her throne admiring the great wonder that has been built for her!
Two obelisks will rise at the entrance of the Palace and on them will be carved the story of Queen Cleopatra, sovereign of Ancient Egypt. So she will be immortal and her name, handed down to posterity, will survive the passage of time.
The pyramid, symbol of ancient Egypt, will serve you to keep your Amulets of Corruption … not too many if you don’t want to end in the belly of Cleopatra’s favorite pet… THE CROCODILE!
The sphinx is a mythical creature with the head of a human and the body of a lion. In ancient Egypt the sphinx was viewed as symbol of benevolence, but with a ferocious strength and were thought of as guardians often flanking the entrances to temples.
In Cleopatra and the Society of Architects you can build 6 sphinxes as a decoration for the Plaza of the Sphinx.
|Cleopatra and the Society of Architects is a game by Bruno Cathala and Ludovic Maublanc published in 2006 by Days of Wonder. When it came out, it caught the attention of people thanks to its innovative elements, in particular the 3D material which was unusual at that time in the world of boardgaming. In 2006 we weren’t publishers yet, just enthusiastic players with a lot of ideas and dreams. We loved Cleopatra and the Society of Architects at first sight for its gameplay and the new mechanics associated to its innovative material. That game represented a new model for the whole boardgame world and we promised to ourselves that, if we ever had become publishers, we would have created games as important as this one. A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes, Cinderella sang, and we wanted to follow them. After a lot of hard work and efforts, we opened uplay.it store which in few years became a point of reference for all the italian players; in 2011, we published our first game, followed by many other in the subsequent years. In 2018 we landed in the USA, where we created Mojito Studios, a new American publisher located in Miami, independent from our italian publishing house.
Since 2006 we grew a lot, but we haven’t forgot where we started at: Cleopatra and the Society of Architects. That game, that made us dream and whose copy we still keep jealousy, is almost impossible to find around, even though it had a lot of success both by public and press.
We are very honored to publish Cleopatra and the Society of Architects Deluxe Edition; it seems like going back to our roots and it’s a way to share with the players our dream. Now, our biggest dream is that get you involved and you rediscover this great game again. And this is why an amazing artist such as Miguel Coimbra has been chosen by us for the restyling of the game. When we saw the first sketches, we understood that we were recreating Cleopatra and the Society of Architects in the best way possible.
We want to thank the authors too, Bruno Cathala and Ludovic Maublanc, who has revised the rules in line with today’s game trends. We wish that you will be as enthusiasm as us and you will join to our dream! Stay with us, because the Queen is back!
