Founders of Teotihuacan is a new city-building strategy game in which players attempt to create the best design of the ancient Mesoamerican city of Teotihuacan. This is related to 2018's Teotihuacan: City of Gods game through its branding and setting (see " 'Teohihuacan: City of the Gods"), but is meant to be a standalone board game. This game progresses over three to four rounds of play as players put action disks onto the main board, form towers, use bonuses, and construct temples, then add resource buildings and the central pyramid to their developments in the city.
Players earn Victory Points for their Districts and how well they complement their Pyramid. The game ends once the eclipse comes, and the player with the most points wins. This game is for one to four players, ages 14 and up, and plays in 60 minutes.
