Even the all-powerful gods are aspects of it.
Six special stones exist that absorb and hold Teotl in its pure form. You are Tlamatini, master priest of an Aztec warrior house and guardian of one of two Temple Stones, sacred vessels that house the Teotl Stones and channel their power to anyone touching them.
The gods command you to battle the opposing warrior house on the Serpent Stones for control of these Teotl stones. Without weapons, build a team of specially-trained Aztec warriors that, when tethered to their Temple Stone, can attack opposing warriors that stand in your way by summoning their Nahualli inner-spirit animals.
You may call upon the Gods to assist you in battle, but only strategic mastery and command of the sacrifice can lead you to glorious victory on the Serpent Stones.
“You might think Reiner Knizia made it and they took his name off because there wasn’t enough math… The art is fun and the design is excellent. If you’re looking for a good twoplayer abstract, you really ought to give this one a shot.”
