About the Game

City of Glory card game was created by Trevor Ranges, author of the National Geographer Traveler: Cambodia guidebook. What began as an obsession with the temples of Angkor and a fondness for both games and education, City of Glory became a COVID hobby. After numerous homemade iterations, the 2nd edition was released just in time for Christmas shopping 2021. The game is intended to entertain, teach people about Cambodia, and support various Cambodian social enterprises by featuring them on particular playing cards, including apsaras, circus performers, and elephants and sharing the proceeds from game sales with each of them.

City of Glory is a family-friendly card game that requires players to work together to win or lose as a team. It requires communication, collaboration, and strategy. Click here to watch “How to Play” videos on YouTube.

Every aspect of the game is intended to recreate the experience of an ancient Khmer kingdom, and both Winner Cards and QR codes on certain cards share the history of Angkor and the beauty of it that exists in Cambodia today. Learn more below!

Social enterprises in Cambodia have experienced extreme financial hardship and I wanted to integrate modern Cambodian efforts to preserve important traditions into those featured in my game. Click on the links below to learn more about the organizations we support.

Who we support

Kulen Elephant Forest and Elephants in Cambodia

Phare Circus and traditional circus in Cambodian history.

Cambodian Living Arts and the Apsaras of Angkor

Colors of Cambodia and other artists who contributed to the game

This passion project began just as the COVID-19 crisis took away the tourism industry that I (and many others) had been working in. Some of my free time these past two years has been spent creating this game, which is being released for a 2nd edition just in time for Christmas!

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.
