My husband loves this game.
Kari
In many board games (e.g. Settlers of Catan) I find the random elements and hidden information annoy me, but in Tigris and Euphrates they really add a lot to the game.
E. Bullock
This somewhat steep learning curve is in spite of the rules, which are actually relatively simple.

This game was so much fun! My whole family likes to play board games, and this is our newest edition. We don't play games like Monopoly, we play things like wizard gizard, last night on earth, settlers, agricola, ect. Tigris and Euphrates is perfect for anyone, it's really easy to learn. I'm 12, so if there is a problem with the game it usually refers to the fact that it is a little to hard for me to play, but this game is really fun and i love it!

I want to start off by addressing the accessibility/learning curve of this excellent game. With all the discussion of it's complexity floating out there on the internet, I was worried that it might be too tough to learn (and teach to others). Turns out, THIS GAME IS NOT HARD TO UNDERSTAND OR LEARN! So rest assured that it will not languish on the shelf collecting dust before you get around to learning the rules.

This is a new edition, complete with a double sided board and new "advanced" scenario. But it also includes the simpler, original version of the game.

The components are of excellent quality and should stand up to the wear and tear of many sessions of play. There is certainly no quality issue in this box.

If you're a fan of board games and want something that will really hook you, this is a great game to buy.

This is a great board game, with fairly simple rules (they take about 10-15 minutes to explain to new players; among my favorite board games, probably only Carcassonne is simpler), interesting game mechanics, and often exciting gameplay. In many board games (e.g. Settlers of Catan) I find the random elements and hidden information annoy me, but in Tigris and Euphrates they really add a lot to the game.

Apparently Mayfair Games has been having some QA problems with this new edition of Tigris and Euphrates: there's a reference on their web site to some games being shipped without enough treasure cubes for the advanced scenario and mine came with several other pieces missing/not fitting together. Fortunately, their Customer Service by email was very courteous and they quickly mailed me replacement pieces.

I wouldn't recommend buying an earlier edition; just make sure to check that all the pieces are there as soon the game arrives instead of waiting until the first time you play like I did.

I am an above average chess player. I am no expert, mind you, but I have enjoyed the game for many years. I have been in search of a game that is similar in the tactical/decision making but does not require hours of reading books and studying theory AND can include up to 4 players. There are hundreds of games that fit this description, but I decided to give Tigris and Euphrtates a try. I haveplayed about 6 games so far and have found the games to be intellectually stimulating, fun, and varied. The rules seem daunting at first, but its actually much simpler to grasp than you think. If the rule book leaves a few questionmarks (but I actually find the rules to be well explained with helpful examples) there are several youtube videos that could help you out.

Basically on each turn, you must make two actions and these actions include 1) placing a leader 2) placing a tile 3) exchanging up to 6 tiles. You can make both actions the same type if you so choose. You score points in one of three ways 1) laying tiles in the same region as a leader 2) buidling monuments and 3) resolving conflicts. There is just the right amount of decision making without being cumbersome and at the same time maintaining the fun factor. The tiles you draw add just a hint of luck, but what you do with the tiles is usually more important than the tiles themsleves. The game is usually won by the person who makes the best tactical decisions.

The game itself is a great experience for a group who enjoys "chess type" games. It is NOT the depth of chess, but it doesn't portend to be. My only gripe is that I wish the board was a bit thicker/larger. The tiles and pieces seem to be of a nice quality and should last a long time with proper care.

This is one of the most underrated board games. It is appreciated and almost venerated by boardgames geeks, but completely unknown byt the larger public.
Yet, this is one of the most strategic board game around. Very little luck, it's all about placing the right tiles at the right place at the right moment. This game has almost no flaws, and no two games are alike. It's great with 2 players, but it's a blast with 4.
Overall one of the best.

I'm a big fan of Settlers of Catan but had played a great deal of it over the past years and had been itching for something new. Then I played a game of Tigris and Euphrates with a number of my Catan-playing friends and had a great time. It helped that I won the first two games I played but, hey that doesn't hurt. Like Catan, this game involves building upon territories and gathering points that are similar to resources. However there are a few quirks such as conflicts between players and the ability to move more freely about the board that make it interesting in new ways. Tigris and Euphrates does not involve any trading like Catan does but rather involves more strategic thinking about where to place territorial pieces and when to enter into conflicts with other players. The other major quirk is the need to gather points in a balanced fashion -- there are 4 types of points denoted by various colors. One's ultimate score comes not from the total points accumulated of all colors but from the number of points accumulated of the least-well represented color in your collection. So you can't just load up on blue points if you've got no red because your score will come from the number of red, rather than the number of blue. This makes the game even more interesting.

In the end, this game is very complicated - it took about an hour to learn the first time I played and an hour to teach my friends the next time I played with new players - but it is well worth the work. Enjoy!
