"Ancient Construct" is a 3 dimensional puzzle game. It contains 24 pieces made using 99 tile blocks and a square wooden and/or tile base (game board).
The winner is the one who plays the most blocks by the end of the game without causing the construct to fall apart.
One needs not only 3D imagination, but also great balance and precision. All pieces are intentionally made uneven as handcrafted by the artisan gamemaker,
which makes it more difficult to balance.
The unevenness of the pieces also makes each game-set unique while adding to the final beauty of your Ancient Construct!
Yet it is a very simple and enjoyable party game!
