Take on the challenge of the Age of the Ziggurats in this fun, educational game!

Take on the role of the governor of a city in ancient Mesopotamia, who must build a Ziggurat to please the King. Ziggurats are huge stepped pyramids, built by ancient civilizations across the Middle East. They are made from millions upon millions of bricks, for reasons we are still not sure of today. Take up the challenge, complete mini-games, and command your workers to build you a Ziggurat, and discover the mysteries for yourself.

Good luck!

The first time I played it took me 28 years to build the ziggurat. After that I played several times and kept getting my score lower, until it was down to 16 years and a few months. I couldn't seem to get under 16 years. Then I had one single really good run and built it in 12 years and some months, which was pretty surprising.

I love this game--it's now become one of my favorite strategy games on here. Reminds me a lot of Excavate. I really love the minigames they included as well.

I wonder why this is rated so poorly on here? Probably because it's difficult to figure out how to play in the start. The game doesn't really explain that the various piles on the map represent how much of each building material you have to work with. Once I figured out this one thing the game became a lot of fun.

nice job :)

Love how the minigames affect worker availability, along with the military campaigns.

Would prefer the timer be a bit slower, or else have a pause/start day function.

Nice Game!
