Short Description:
Awe-inspiring structures. Brutal tactics. Can you match the ruthless determination of Imhotep, legendary architect, to build the most revered Egyptian monuments?
Long Description:
You're an Egyptian architect trying to build the most revered monuments while thwarting your opponents’ efforts to do the same. To erect structures, you transport stone blocks on ships from your quarry to five different construction sites: pyramid, obelisk, chamber tomb, temple, and market. But you alone do not choose where the ships go. A fierce competition for the precious stone resources plays out. Over six rounds, players try to transport their stone blocks to end up in the most valuable positions, but a player can only choose one of three actions in a turn: excavate a new stone block from the quarry, load a block onto a ship, or move a ship to a construction site. From there, the massive stone blocks must be unloaded in order and placed on the sites in preset sequences. You must get your blocks to the right places, in the right order, at the right time to be the greatest architect.
