File:La ruins.png

A Ruin is a megalithic structure in Age of Empires that can only be acquired when it appears within the Line of Sight of a unit, with the exception of Towers, Walls and Buildings. The color of a civilization corresponds to the color of the owner of a specific ruin.

Once all of the ruins are acquired by a certain team or civilization, the countdown to victory starts with 2000 years (which is five minutes in the real world). If an opposing team or civilization does not acquire a ruin within the timeframe, the civilization or team with all ruins wins the game.
