Become the Most Famous Architect in the Land In Asara, the Land of the 1000 Towers, players take on the roles of rich building magnates – Timanis, Mirar, Leiard, and Faraiel – who compete against one another to become the most acclaimed builder in the land. Competitors must dispatch their buyers to the four marketplace areas on the octagon-shaped game board to purchase each of the needed tower sections – base, trunk, window, and turret – in five different material grades represented by various colors.
