Mosaic: A Story of Civilization

Mosaic: A Story of Civilization box cover art with an Egyptian woman dressed in white with a jeweled headress and men working in fields near a river.

Mosaic is an action selection game. On your turn, you will perform one of eight actions and acquire pillars of civilization.

Acquiring pillars is important in creating the unique mosaic of your civilization. They are used as prerequisites for many new technologies, as well as for scoring. Also, by pursuing specialization in one or more civilization pillars, you may be able to claim a ‘Golden Age’ of that type.

As the game goes on and your civilization grows, scoring cards are eventually revealed from the four decks. Each time a scoring card is revealed, your civilization will score for each region that you dominate with your cities, towns, wonders, and military units. After the third scoring card is revealed, there is one final turn and the game ends. You will then score for your cities and towns, your wonders, projects, achievments, and golden ages, and for all of your cards that score for your unique civilization pillars.

The chart indicating Mosaic: A story of civilization requires 2-6 players, recommended player size for the best game time is 4, plays in 120 minutes, features civilization themes, and offers Action queue, area majority/influence, end game bonuses, hand management, open drafting, set collection, tags, variable player Powers, and variable set up Mechanics
