Quick Takes: 1-4 players 30-60 minutes Ages 10+ Level 1 (easy to learn, quick to play and FUN!)About the game:
Interested in ancient civilizations - or interested in a game night where you can learn about them? Cóatl is the game for you! With the passing of a great spiritual leader, players are challenged to compete with one another to become the next great high Aztec priest. The challenge: impress the gods by creating the best Cóatls (serpent sculptures).
Each turn, players collect thick, colorful head, tail, and body sections or assemble them into Cóatls. As you design your sacred serpent sculptures (say it 5 times fast!), you will want to do so in a way that completes prophecy cards. Completed prophecy cards are the main way to earn points, and the player at the end with the most points becomes the high priest! The game ends when either there are no more Cóatl parts to draw from or when a player has completed three Cóatls.
- Easy setup - no need to set aside an hour for rule reading ahead of time
- Fun for the whole family - simple enough for older elementary age children, a great introduction to strategy!
