NILE - A game of Ancient Agriculture
This complete edition of the NILE card game consists of the 92-card original set, plus the 50-card deLuxor expansion (which introduced 2 new crop cards [for easier play with 5-6 players], 1 new resource card, 3 Monument cards, and 3 turn counter cards), for a total of 142 cards!
NILE is a simple set collection game with 5 suits, each suit representing an authentic crop type in ancient Egypt. Fast and easy to play. Great for the EURO-GAME lovers!
In NILE, players draft cards to plant fields. At the beginning of every turn there is a flood, which determines which fields will harvest that turn. Harvested resources are placed into storage piles, which ultimately determine the winner of the game. Players spend the game competing over resources, trading at markets and even making offerings to Hapi, the god of the Nile. The winner will be the player who defends their fields and manages their storage pile most effectively.
I didn’t have to ask my brother twice to play Nile and Petri who played it with me the last time joined us, so we got to try the three-player game. It was fast and fun. Nile is very good with three, as it is with two. Not terribly deep, but light and fun. I’ll have to write a proper review some day, Nile is well worth it. - Mikko Saari on board games.
Nile is a very smart game. There are a lot of times you're going to call your friends bad names, which is the mark of a fun game. Play poorly, and you're guaranteed to lose, which is another good sign. Play well, and it just means you've got a fair shot against everyone else.... It's smart, fun and tense, and that means a fun game where I'm from. - Matt Drake
