Players embody rulers of the ancient Maya civilization, competing for dominance over the Yucatán peninsula. Dominate regions and scarce resources to build a glorious pyramid temple to appease the gods. The ruler with the most Fame will be crowned K’uhul Ahau (divine lord). Raise strongholds, secure supplies, summon the gods and lead your people to victory.
The average playtime is 90-120 minutes. The recommended age is 14 and up.
Our goal was to create a game where ancient Maya history and culture is an integral part of the mechanisms. We achieved this goal as confirmed by playtesters, and also a Mayanist professor.
Ahau is now available on Tabletop Simulator! Subscribe to the mod here.
