Immerse yourself in the spirit of ancient Angkor

Each player in City of Glory oversees a village, where laborers can farm or work on building an Angkor temple. Train your laborers as Apsaras to dance for the gods or as Artisans to decorate the temple. Grow rice to support your kingdom. Buy buffaloes and elephants to grow rice and build more quickly. Complete the temple before the gods no longer favor your city or its king. City of Glory is a collaborative, family-friendly card game that captures the spirit of ancient Cambodian kingdoms.
