|Near the wall of the region that burns,
feathers come forth.
The Sun spreads out,
there is a war cry...
In the volatile card game Otontin: Warriors of the Lost Empire, 3-8 players are ferocious Aztec warriors forming and destroying alliances as they rise to power within the Empire. Each turn is played in three phases: Campaign, Strategy and War. During the Campaign phase, players roll dice to determine their wealth and military strength. They then negotiate with other players during the Strategy phase, secretly joining alliances or giving attack or defense orders via tactic cards that are played faced down. During the War phase, tactic cards are revealed and battles commence! The game ends when a player's stronghold is worth twenty cocoa beans.
