Game Overview

Architectura is a highly interactive city-building euro game. The players take turns playing the cards to the city grid of blocks and streets. Each card has its own value, and it may change during the game because of other cards.

In this game your table will turn into a grid of city streets and blocks. Each building you construct will affect the value of the adjacent buildings, or will even destroy them! Let’s say you’ve just built a magnificent temple. A vulgar market around the corner doesn’t belong there anymore, and has to be shut down right away. But a park near the temple’s entrance will definitely be a good match and will even profit from the divine proximity.

Rotate the cards to change their values, resolve their special effects and do your best to carefully manage your options to become the best architect of the city!

Das Spiel bietet angenehme Abwechslung, recht schickes Material und an sich einen gediegenen Einstieg und Spielverlauf.

German Review by Brett&Pad — Reading Time: 4 min.

Architectura steht auf einem gesunden Fundament: schicke Optik, kompakte Spielgröße und hohe Interaktion.

Italian Review by I Giochi Del Topo — Reading Time: 6 min.

L’architettura potrebbe sembrare un’arte calma e gentile, ma a quanto pare anche in questo settore la rivalità regna sovrana. Ne è una chiarissima testimonianza il gioco intitolato “Architectura”.
