Tigris & Euphrates is set in the ancient fertile crescent with players building civilizations through tile placement.===================="I'd say the inner circle of [board game] apps would now include Tigris & Euphrates" - "The dish" by Keith Law "Tigris and Euphrates is exceptional..." - iOS Board Games blog on BoardGameGeek.com "Codito is ... giving Days of Wonder a run for their money." - iPadBoardGames.org ====================In fertile Mesopotamia between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, lies the cradle of civilization. Your goal is to develop all 4 of the key spheres of civilization: Settlements, Temples, Farms, and Markets. To do this, you will position your leaders, create and extend kingdoms, build monuments, and resolve conflicts. Tension arises when kingdoms connect and leaders clash on the board, with only one leader of each type surviving. You will thus aquire victory points in each of the four spheres. The winner is the player who develops their civilization in the most balanced way, without revealing a sphere of weakness. With no setup time required, no pieces to lose, and no arguments about the rules, the future of board games is here and Tigris & Euphrates gives you exactly what you want -- to play!
