“Inca Empire – The Card Game reminds us of a cross between Targi and 7 Wonders… without having anything in common with either.
However, the strategic depth and balancing research sought by the author allows us to venture into the comparison with these milestones of card games.” –  Playful Fox See the whole article here


Can I build a road to a card that another player placed and claimed with their token? Yes, as long as it is connected to your road system.

Do I have to use all of my cards and tokens in the current ERA? No, tokens and cards roll over to the next era. You must take a minimum of two actions in the current era.

CUZCO vs CUSCO there is no difference.

The reference card has the option to “Do Nothing” as part of 4. Take an Action. Should say “Pass”? Yes! You can download and print a corrected one by clicking the “Fixed Turn Order card” link at the bottom of this page.
