Construct a glorious Temple to entice the dead to visit earth. Only the finest will pass the Test of the Funerary Temple.

Open Test

To open the Test of Funerary Temple, you'll need:

To build

Built in a Small Construction Site. A Funerary Temple can be repositioned just one time using the Utility menu.


Each week, the Funerary Temple with the highest Glory rating passes the test.

Your temple gains glory when you add Raeli Tiles to it. Although you can add tiles to your temple at any time, you can never remove them. Additionally, your temple can never be reset.

Once tiles are added to the Funerary Temple, it will grow significantly in size:

Glory calculation

Glory is calculated individually for each type of tile, then added. More tiles of the same type increase your glory, but there are diminishing returns: for example, 343 tiles of the same color only give twice the glory of 7 tiles. So to maximize the glory of your temple, you should try to have many different colors. See the table below.

Tiles of the same color 1 2 7 14 49 98 343 686 2401 4802 16807 33614 117649
Glory for that color 100 135 200 235 300 335 400 435 500 535 600 635 700

In general, N tiles of one color give 100*(1+log7(N)) points for that color.

Or, if you don't have log7 on your calculator: 100*(1+log(N)/log(7)).

The glory value is rounded down to the nearest integer after summing up all individual colors (e.g. even though 2 of 1 color will give you 135, and 8 of another will give you 206, combined they will give you 342, since their fractional components still get added before rounding down for the final score).
