Board Game: Aztlán
3-4 players

not much known abaout this one.(release date seems to be essen 2012)

I have seen this in a Video where someone explained the rules of this game. after 2.5 min all the rules where explained ant the Interviewer didn't know what more to ask.

all in all it's too simple for me to like as a game. with the words of a fellow geek.

"Disappointing on every level."
