City of Glory card game was created by Trevor Ranges, author of the National Geographic Traveler: Cambodia guidebook. What began as an obsession with the temples of Angkor and a fondness for both games and education, City of Glory became a COVID hobby. After numerous homemade iterations, the 2nd edition was released just in time for Christmas shopping 2021. The game is intended to entertain, teach people about Cambodia, and support various Cambodian social enterprises by featuring them on particular playing cards, including apsaras, circus performers, and elephants and sharing the proceeds from game sales with each of them.
