The world is moving into a new era and now more than ever the clans work for the progress and the evolution of their community. Everyone tries to find new ways to make their lives better, new means to grow their lands, constructions and artifacts that create an easier life.
In Anatolia the players must prove their quality through three different Achievements: to create a Water Supply System for their village so the water can reach their land, to throw the best Fest in the valley, and finally to build two Artifacts!
Each player chooses to complete two different Achievements at the beginning of the game and if those Achievements remain complete until the end of the game, the players score additional Victory Points. The players use Drop counters in order to build the Water Supply System. Five Drop counters must be placed on five Houses of the same color and of the same Block. Furthermore these Houses must be connected to each other and at least one of them must be placed on the river or the lake of the game board. To place a Drop counter on a House, players must wait until the Construction phase and then choose not to build one of three Elements of their Construction board.
The Artifacts can be built easily but can be destroyed as easy as well because they are affected by all Catastrophes. Players can build an Artifact on the top of their Houses at the same way as the Drop Counters but in this case this House must be 2 stories high. If players do not complete this Achievement by the end of the game, they can still score Victory points. This is the only Achievement that has an advantage but it also gives less Victory Points.
This is an era where tribes search for a way to upgrade their social status, so they throw several Fests where they meet each other and celebrate. This is the last Achievement where players create the best Fest in the Valley by offering five different materials. These materials can be found on the Fest tokens but also on the Aspect cards. The Aspect cards have different images that must be matched with the Fest tokens. Once players have five Aspect cards that match with five Fest tokens, they discard them to score Victory points at the end of the game.
Anatolia is not a standalone game, is an expansion of Hoyuk. Also the Clan Pledge Level Includes ALL unlocked Stretch Goals too.

In Höyük each player represents a clan which will settle with other clans to erect a village. A replica of a Neolithic settlement will be built on the Höyük board using tiles to represent houses. Many additional pieces, such as ovens, shrines, and pens, will also aid a player in building their settlements.
The purpose of the game is to build the best settlement and score the most victory points. There are multiple paths to victory with many choices along the way. The best Clan will prevail in Höyük!

BOARD TO DEATH
Depending on where in the world you are, we will either ship to you from our hub in Germany (EU & International backers), or New Hampshire (USA, Canada and Brazil). As a rough estimate, the game will cost $0 to ship in the USA as we offer free shipping to ALL pledge levels, $0 or $10 in EU depending on the pledge level you choose (all the shipping fees are written in the pledge levels), $10 in Canada, $15 or $25 in Asia and Australia depending on the pledge level you choose. All the pledge level shipping fees are already discounted since we have to pay additional fees.
Europe: We ship from Germany so you do not pay taxes or any additional fees in EU.
USA: We ship from USA so you do not pay taxes or handling in USA.
Canada: We ship from USA with courier that’s why the fees are low. If you require USPS, then fees are a bit higher and you must contact us first so we can inform you about those fees.
Brazil: We ship from USA with USPS. If you want to add to your pledge any Add On items there will be additional fees.
All remaining countries: We ship from Germany with courier. If you want to add to your pledge any Add On items there will be additional fees.
ADD ON ITEMS, MULTIPLE PLEDGE LEVELS & SHIP FEES
You are free to add any Add On items to your pledge level or add multiple copies of the same pledge level.
For USA: you do not add any shipping fees no matter how many add on items you have pledged or even multiple pledge levels.
For Europe: We have a new agreement so if you total pledge is over $100 then you do not pay any shipping fees. For Example: You have pledged for the Progress pledge level at $70 and you add $10 for shipping fees, for a total of $80. Assume you also pledge an Add On item like a copy of Raid and Trade at $50. Your total pledge is $80+$50 = $130. Since you pledge is over $100, remove the $10 for shipping fees, so your pledge will be $120.
For Canada & the rest world shipping fees will be calculated after the end of the campaign and we will contact each backer separated or if you want you can contact us here first and we will let you know the exact amount of shipping fees based on the items you have chosen to add to your pledge level.
IMPORTANT: Keep in mind that we always cover a part of the shipping fees in order to keep all the prices low.
