So sorry... this game is SOLD OUT 😢

Cleopatra and the Society of Architects Premium painted edition!!! I will finish this write-up when I return from the stratosphere!! 🚀🥰

Every bell, buzzer, and siren should be going off right now! ⏰🔔🚨⏲

The Premium painted edition of this game is INSANE! The bundle I am selling here includes the Painted Premium game with the magnets, card sleeves, and expansion pack (the Cult of Sobek and the Whims of Cleopatra… as well as the included expansion, The Wisdom of Bastete – which is inside the Premium box automatically). And yes, all the expansion miniatures are PAINTED too!  Ahhhhhhhh!!  Seriously… this has become one of my most treasured games already! Bam! 💥 [side note – the small gallery pic of the game out on the virtual table is not the painted version. Sorry for that. I wanted to show a pic on the table.. and well, I couldn’t find a good one for the painted set.]

Let’s head straight to the videos!

To get a solid idea of how the Premium painted edition looks… check out this unboxing/comparison video by Zee Garcia over at The Dice Tower. Zee covers the differences between the original version and this beauty… displaying the physical differences and explaining the rules adjustments. Another solid video!!  You can find it HERE.

As I noted above… not all the Premium Edition games are painted!! This was a Pledge Manager add-on. To see what I mean, here’s an unboxing of the unpainted premium edition by Tabletop Knights. The video can be found HERE. Mind you.. this is still a beautiful production… I just wanted to demonstrate the difference between the painted and  unpainted premium in case there was any confusion 😉😇

Game play (and more chances to see the premium, painted pieces… ohhhhhhh so sweet!!)

This video – by the Game Boy Geek – does a great job of showing the components and explaining the game play. This is a must-see video!! You can find it HERE.

And finally… if you’d like to take a peek at the original Kickstarter campaign, you can find it HERE.

…4 …3 …2 …1. Lift OFF!

Sorry for the exceptionally brief write-up everyone! I’m racing to get some of these AMAZING new games on the site before I head out of town for my family vacation in a few days… and of course there is packing to be done and planning.. and well, you get the idea! You’ve probably taken a trip or two… 😉😁 In any event, this is an absolutely AMAZING reprint of the original game and my hat is off to Mojito Studios for a job well done! Heck… I’m tossing my hat into the air and shouting out loud for this one! It is SOOOOOOOO good!

So sorry... this game is SOLD OUT 😢


Cleopatra and the Society of Architects has arrived!!! This bundle includes the PAINTED Premium Edition (this cost an extra $40 in the pledge manager.. not all premium editions are painted) as well as the Magnets, the card sleeves, and the Expansion pack! Game ON ON ON!

Designed by Bruno Cathala and Ludovic Maublanc, Cleopatra and the Society of Architects is a fun and engaging game that includes a three-dimensional palace that players compete to build. Players strive to become the wealthiest of Cleopatra’s architects by constructing the most magnificent and valuable parts of her palace.

Players, however, will be tempted to trade in materials of dubious origins in order to build faster. While these corrupt practices might allow an architect to stay a step ahead of the rest, they come with a high price: the cursed corruption amulets honoring Sobek, the crocodile-god. When Cleopatra finally reaches her new palace at the end of the game, she punishes the most corrupted architects (i.e., the ones with the most amulets), depriving them of riches or giving them as a sacrifice to her crocodile! The wealthiest architect from among those still alive wins.

This new edition of Cleopatra and the Society of Architects has a new graphic design by Miguel Coimbra, a free-standing 3D palace, and rulebook updated by the designers for simplicity and fluidity, which incorporates these gameplay changes:

  • The combinations of resource cards to discard in order to build pieces of the palace have been reworked.
  • The player rewards for building the palace’s pieces have been recalculated.
  • The consequences of corruption have been reviewed.
  • The Great Priest is no longer activated in the same way.
  • The player count has changed from 3-5 to 2-4.
  • There is a new specific system to manage the character cards, which are no longer part of the deck, and are instead handled separately.
