Catan-Ancient Egypt brings The Settlers of Catan to a new location and time, with players now living in the time of the Pharaohs and using their ox carts to move resources to build small villages and great temples styled after some of the most interesting buildings of Egyptian antiquity. As always, you must beware of the robber! His chariot can interrupt production at your cattle pastures, papyrus groves and quarries. You will need boats to cross the Nile and instead of roads you get bullock carts.
After you master the base game, you can try these variants:
The help from Gods cards set a new aspect which can give you an edge. We liked these. The Great Pyramid gives one extra victory points and other extras. It was a tight game. We recommend it.
This was out on the table again last week. It’s cooperative game like Pandemic. No cooperation and the team of players burn horribly.
Flash point fire rescue by indie boards and cards is well-rated on Board Game Geek. When we played this game we liked it. It’s another cooperative game. Flash Point-fire rescue had lots of flash points for us and our incompetence led to very little rescue.
The scene is a building which has casualties that you have to get out and rescue. The players compete, cooperatively to do this and put out the fire. Unfortunately the fire spreads. We managed to incinerate ourselves twice-oh dear! It is a good game.
