The isle of Atlantis, your home is sinking, are you be able to save your people in time?
Atlantis Rising is a co-operative worker placement game where you must work together with up to 5 players to deploy citizens across your homeland, gathering resources in order to build a cosmic gate that can save your people. Workers placed close to the shoreline are more rewarding, but are more likely to be flooded with actions lost.
Every turn, each player draws a misfortune card that will flood certain locations along the shrinking Atlantis shoreline, or might otherwise work to undermine your efforts to save your people. So you must race to collect the necessary resources to build and power the gate, before the island disappears under the waves forever.
This edition has all new art and graphic design, designed to bring even more attention to the thematic setting of the game. The Athenians Attack phase has been replaced with the Wrath of the Gods phase, bringing more strategic planning and adding to the sense of urgency. Now, instead of placing workers in an Atlantean Navy, players must cooperatively choose to flood a set number of tiles at the end of each round. To further help them in their task, Councilor player powers have been expanded and made more impactful, and the knowledge deck has also been revised and expanded. The variable gate components, once built, no longer give one-time bonuses, but create new worker placement spots where players can send Atlantean workers to unleash actions to help save their island.
