Product Description

Product Description

In Mespotamia, between the Euphrates & Tigris rivers, lies the cradle of civilization. Farmers cultivate the land, traders sell their wares, and priests offer the masses their religious support. For kings seek to lead their dynasties to fame and power. Conflicts are unavoidable and only the most clever and successful king will emerge as the winner! The successful author Reiner Knizia won the Deutschen Spilepreis with the board game "Euprat&Tigris". Now, we present the card game version the game for all the fans of the original! Components: 16 leaders in 4 dynasties, 193 civilization cards, 4 catastrophe cards, 3 ship cards, rule booklet

From the Manufacturer

An expansion for Chicken Cha Cha Cha You can now play with 5 or 6 and with new rules. Chicken Yard Rumba. The chickens are no longer dancing alone - the water-based fowl have decided to join in the fun. Not only do the chickens now compete with the ducks in the Olympic dance trials, but there are now squishy obstacles to their quest to collect all the feathers. Otherwise, the game is the same fun as the original, but watch your step or you will need to clean your feet.

I've tried several other Reiner Knizia games (such as Lost Cities) and really enjoyed them. I started out looking for the board game "Tigris & Euphrates" because I read on a website that it was considered Knizia's masterpiece, and then wound up getting this card game "Euphrates & Tigris" instead because it was the only version available ("Euphrates % Tigris" is a 'simplified' version of the board game that has slightly less complex rules but still uses tokens and cards). I was not disappointed!

The learning curve was steep - I can't say I fully understood what was going on the first time I played! - but once I grasped the strategy I was completely hooked. Gameplay is focused on gathering "points" in four areas (trader, farmer, priest, and king), which you earn by laying the appropriately colored tiles next to your "leaders" (e.g. your trader, farmer, priest, and king) in each area and/or by defeating your opponents' "leaders". To further spice up the game, there are also ten locations with "treasures" on them, and if you obtain a treasure, it serves as a "wild point" (e.g. can be added to your final score in any of the four areas). The game forces you to develop all four areas equally because your final score is actually your point total from the WEAKEST of your four development areas (e.g. the area in which you scored the least points!). The game supports 2-4 players, but is probably best played with 3-4 players.

If you like games that require strategic thinking, I highly recommend this one. If you're still deciding whether to purchase this, there is a website that lets you play the game online against AI opponents for free - not as satisfying as having the board game and playing against your friends, but a great way to try the game before purchasing it, and also to learn the rules the first time around!

Rules for this game are in German, (if you happen to get the Hans Im Glück edition... however, you can get the English translation on-line. Good luck with those, too, i.e., The card game shares similar elements to T&E, but in some ways, the rules are more difficult to grasp. Find someone that already knows how to play the game, and have them teach you. After learning it myself (this took several plays, referring back to the rules, for what seem to be wholly arcane details), I found it to be pretty dull, probably too random, and ultimately, not worth the effort. ... The wooden tokens are nice though.
