Product Description

Product Description

Journey to Ancient Egypt's sacred Nile valley! Great kings compete to forge mighty kingdoms in a struggle to control the land of "Kemet." Along the banks of the great river they expand their influence and explore new territory. They hope to earn the favor of the great falcon-headed god Horus. Are you the one to unite the valley into one great kingdom? With clever use of card and tile play, you guide the course of the sacred river, and the lands that surround it! Horus uses a unique combination of tile and card play to create a delightfully casual yet engaging game with surprising strategic and tactical depth. Beautifully designed tiles feature ancient hieroglyphics, and the playing pieces evoke the deities of this fascinating culture. Horus is easy to learn and play, but is full of intrigue and player interaction. Ever changing, always different, you will find mastery of the Nile delightfully elusive. Can you seize destiny and reign supreme over the land of Egypt? Discover your inner Pharaoh with Horus! Horus contains: 54 cards, 120 tiles, 80 wooden kingdom markers, (4x20 of each color) 1 tile bag and rules booklet. Horus is for 2-4 players, ages 10+, and takes about an hour to play.

Horus is Mayfair's Egyptian-themed, tile-laying game where players set up and expand their territory along the sacred Nile River. As their influence grows, they venture into new territories in hopes of gaining favor from Horus, the falcon-headed god. This game is not as complicated as I first thought, but a bit of strategy is still, nonetheless, required. Certain decisions must be made; what kind of terrain will the desert become? How and where do you plan to block your opponents from expanding their territory? Clever playing of the cards and tiles is the key to determining the outcome of the game. The player with the most points scored from the influence in the different placed terrain tiles wins the game.

Each player gets 20 wooden bits in whatever color they choose(four different colors for up to 4 players- black, blue, white and gold). Random tiles are then shuffled and placed in the bag while selection tiles are separated into five different piles representing each of the 5 different terrain- marsh, river, hills, farmland, desert. After initially placing three river tiles (one river start, two river ends) to mark the starting point of the game, each player performs a series of actions in the following order during each turn: 1.) Drawing a tile and placing it on the board. If it's a terrain tile it can be placed anywhere, but usually next to a tile of the same terrain and as long as they don't block the future course of the Nile River's flow. If it's a river tile, the player places it on either of the spots where the river end tiles sits, which in turn is moved adjacent to the selected river tile.
