Princes of Machu Picchu
Princes of Machu Picchu is a strategy game by Mac Gerdts, designer of Concordia.
After the Spaniards conquered the Incan Empire, some Incan princes could flee into the mountains to a well hidden place: The lost city of Machu Picchu. But they are in danger to be discovered by the Spaniards. Can the city survive with the help of all their priests and virgins of the sun? Or will the Spaniards discover the secret place? The destiny of Machu Picchu will be decided upon within only a few days!
The players represent one of those princes in town. Your workers will grow corn, plant coca, feed Llamas, and manufacture pottery and cloth. Your priests and virgins will sacrifice at the temples of the city.
Whether the Incans or the Spaniards will win depends on the Princes of Machu Picchu themselves. If their workers produce often and all their priests and virgins will help, the Incans will win. If they don’t work hard everyday and their priests and virgins don’t hurry to help, the Spaniards have a good chance of discovering the lost city.
