In an ancient world long forgotten by time, enormous titans terrorize the land. Five tribes have been fleeing from these titans for centuries, but things are about to change. Growing city-states pledge to end this reign of terror, determined to take on the titans and make the world a safer place for all. Every city-state competes to attract the tribes, eager for the strength of the combined peoples, who are now leaving behind old traditions with the hope that the titans can be defeated once and for all.
In The Ancient World, players will compete to grow the largest and most influential city-state by managing citizens, treasury, and military and by defeating titans. Players will take turns sending citizens to take special actions or using military cards to attack titans. One of the actions a citizen can perform is to construct Empire cards, which give more citizens, money, and abilities.
A city-state's influence in the world is measured by sets of tribe banners that it possesses. Every Empire card has one or more tribe banners, and tribe banners can also be gained by defeating titans. Players will gain victory points (VPs) for sets of tribe banners. After six rounds, the player with the most VPs from sets of tribe banners wins the game.
