It is a time of blood, of ritual, of war. Gods walk among the tribes, each hungering for the devotion that gives them form. Though the gods are many, only one will endure the ages above all others.

Mezo is an innovative game of area control for  2-4 players inspired by Mayan mythology. Players control a powerful god and a tribe of followers. These tribes will clash for dominance, build step pyramids, and make sacrifices all in the name of their god. 

The first big box game from Small Box Games designer John Clowdus (OmenHemlochNeolithic), Mezo redefines area control and conflict-driven gameplay. The game features massive god miniatures, each with vastly asymmetrical strategies, as well as numerous paths for players to achieve victory! 

This campaign also proudly offers the TRIBE pledge level: a non-miniatures edition of Mezothat includes all stretch goals! Plastic components are replaced with wooden components and cardboard standees.

The CHIEFTAIN PLEDGE is the core experience featured in our playthroughs with the Dice Tower and Man Vs. Meeple. It contains beautiful unit miniatures for 4 tribes (3 sculpts per tribe), as well as 4 massive Mayan gods! With all gods unlocked, this pledge level offers 91 possible gameplay combinations of gods from 2-4 players!
