1With 4 players, each player will face a different side of the game board. When there are less than 4 players, the seating locations are important, as is the placement of the Core Cube (the 2x2x2 multicoloured block). The golden icons (arrows) in the middle of the Temple floor show where the players must sit. For example, in a two player games the players sit on the two sides (Right / Down) as pointed by the arrows. And in a three player game players sit on the three sides (Up, Right, Down) as pointed by the arrows.
The Core Cube will be placed on top of the icons and arrows matching your player count.
NOTE! If you're playing Solo mode against the Ancients, please also refer to the "Solo mode: Changes in Setup"
