What It Is

Buffalo Games' Ruin is a strategy board game that explores the hidden treasures of a lost Mayan Empire. Two to four players embark on an exciting adventure around an unpredictable and interchangeable game board toward the center of a Mayan ruin. The three-dimensional board gives Ruin stunning visual appeal, while allowing players to change the path on every turn through interchangeable game cards that are inserted into the board. These cards also serve to wall off opponents or create secret passages, providing escape for the winner. Players can decide whether to change things to help themselves or thwart their opponents. Ruin includes an interchangeable game board, eight pawns, a 20-sided die, and 50 interchangeable game cards.
