Board Game Spotlight: Tzolk’in The Mayan Calendar

Tzolkin-The-Mayan-Calendar-Review.jpg

In today's board game spotlight we step into the world of an ancient civilisation as we take a look at Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar.

A game for two to four players, Tzolk'in is a dynamic worker placement game where each participant represents a different Mayan tribe.

The Game

Tzolk'in is a worker placement game at heart, but it has some great new features that really make it stand out. The game board is covered in interlocking gears, and as such each turn moves your workers on to different actions, making the placing or removal of these workers that much more important.

Thereby bringing programming to the worker placement genre. Tzolk'in also has many ways to win, putting real pressure on the creation of a deep strategy, and the utilisation of the games many moving components.

Player interaction within Tzolk'in is also prominent, featuring heavily if indirectly like many Euro style games. For the budding strategists Tzolk'in is a real challenge.

The Publisher

Czech Games Edition was founded in 2007 out of a love for board games and that love has generated some great titles Through the Ages, Dungeon Lords and Alchemists being some of their most notable releases.

Concentrating mostly on publishing games by Czech and Slovakian authors and doing all of their development in the Czech Republic, Czech Games has all the right values and is really one to watch.

Czech Games Edition are also the creators of the hit party game series Codenames! There are three versions of this game now available on our online store: the original, Pictures and Deep Undercover.

Always competitive on price and really appreciate their alert system. No problems with delivery or anything like that.

Great selection of games, I could end up spending a lot here! It would be nice to be able to remove (or filter by) expansions from the listings though to make browsing a bit easier. Now I just have to wait a couple of days for my new games to arrive!

I ordered the Catan basic game from Zatu Games because it was cheaper than all the retailers (Amazon included) and it had very good reviews. I received the game within 2 days of ordering, but it was missing some pieces, probably due to a manufacturer's error (since the game was sealed). I contacted Zatu and they sent me the missing pieces immediately on the post, so very happy with their service. I will use them again.
