Certain actions, such as playing special character cards, will cause a player to gain corruption tokens. Corruption tokens can be removed by making offerings to the gods, whereby each player secretly chooses a quantity of talents to offer. The player who offers the most talents loses three corruption tokens, while the players who offer fewer talents receive varying amounts of corruption.
At the end of the game, the players with the most corruption tokens are fed to Cleopatra's crocodile. The surviving architect with the most talents wins the game.
