It is said that Wiraqocha created the sun and the pre-Columbian tribes of the Andes. Under his leadership, the powerful Inca people came out of their caves to discover new horizons in order to subsist and develop in harmony with nature. They worshipped Pachamama, Mother Earth, the basis of all living beings, plants and minerals, on earth and under the earth. In Tiwanaku, first announced as Pachamama, you lead your tribe into unknown territory in search of new lands to cultivate. Your goal: to explore and map out areas to develop crops according to Pachamama's customs and heritage. If you honour her by respecting the great principles of diversity and complementarity, Nature will reward you; if not, you will suffer her wrath. In this race, risk-taking, deduction, intuition and a good sense of timing should get you through.
Each scenario disc shows a unique arrangement of terrain tiles and crop tiles. Terrain tiles are in regions of 1-5 spaces, and a region of one colour does not touch a region of the same colour, even diagonally. The crop tokens have a value from 1 to 5, and each value has a different size/colour (level 1 is brown, level 2 is green, etc). A region of size 1 will contain a crop token of value 1, a region of size 2 will contain crop tokens of value 1 and 2, and only a region of size 5 will contain crop tokens of each value. Two identical crop values can never be adjacent, even diagonally. During a turn, you can perform an exploration action or a divine action: At the end of an exploration action or a divine action, you can hand over 1 to 5 offering cubes for 0 to 10 points. You may hold a maximum of one offering of each colour.
When the last field tile is placed on the board, the game ends. Starting with this player, each player in turn may take one divine action or pass. If you pass, you take no further action. If you divine, you gain points and an offering cube as usual, or you lose points and must pass. Go around the table until everyone has passed, then make a final offering and see who has the most points.
