"If you go and take the field of your enemy, the enemy will come and take your field." – Ancient Babylonian Proverb
Tigris & Euphrates is an award-winning tile placement game of rival dynasties designed by Reiner Knizia and set in ancient Mesopotamia at the time of the first cities. Two to four players take on the roles of rulers building civilizations, competing for land, and striving to strike a balance between commerce, agriculture, housing, and religion.
Advance your civilization, grow your dynasty, and accumulate victory points by strategically placing tiles, leaders, and even monuments on the board. As civilizations grow, wars may erupt over the region’s limited land and resources, or another ruler may incite rebellion among your people, forcing you to fight for your territory. The ruler who has the greatest amount of victory points in the weakest aspect of their civilization wins!
