Enter a magical world where the inhabitants have the power to transform the terrain in which they live. In Terra Mystica, players strive to develop one of fourteen factions more successfully than their opponents. Each faction is bound to a specific type of terrain, and there’s not enough room for everyone. You must compete to claim valuable territory while altering the environment to meet your faction's needs. Expand your influence and build structures that provide valuable resources like workers, priests, money, and power. Adapt to the evolving challenges and claim your territory!
With fourteen artfully-designed factions and different bonus cards in play each game, Terra Mystica presents unique challenges and many paths to victory. Build more basic Dwellings to have many workers on hand, or upgrade your Dwellings into other structures that provide their own unique benefits. Build temples to gain more influence in the cults of fire, water, earth, and air. Or ensure that you have a constant flow of money by building trading houses. Whatever strategy you choose, make use of the resources at your disposal to perform the actions that will forge a path for your faction.
