Description Edit | History

The dream of creating a new civilization in ancient Mesopotamia is within reach. Are you ready to lead your population ?

In the age of its maximum splendor, this vast and fertile geographical area was a scene of destiny for some populations, who resolved to settle in the richest and most strategically advantageous territories. Over the course of centuries these populations succeeded in developing all aspects of their civilization wisely. This was the main factor enabling them to found marvelous cities like Ur and to construct gigantic buildings like Ziggurats.
Just like Mesopotamia’s ancient Kings, each player will have to achieve the highest prestige by precisely dosing the development of Agriculture, Trade, Politics, Culture and finally War, so that thanks to these efforts the long desired construction of five Ziggurats is completed.

But, beware…
If the King becomes guilty of Greed in building them, or pursues improperly the conquest of Lands, this could ultimately lead him to defeat. The intrinsic speed of the game, the simplicity of rules, the very alluring artwork, together with the subtlety of the innumerable strategies which can be pursued, render Ur a gaming experience which you will play and play and keep playing again for a very, very long time!

18 Ur Reference Card (English)
This rather large reference card is an expanded version of the one that comes with the game. The pictures are nice, but don't do a good job explaining the actions, so I've included text descriptions of the actions. This reference card also uses the corrected War action.

4 Condensed Color - Player Aid
I developed this player aid to be short and to the point about the actions available for each color. Other player aids described the flow of play, but I didn't find any really brief ones about the actions available. Version 1.0, June 19th 2008

Print this spreadsheet to card stock and you'll have some handy English-language player aids that describe how each action works (sorry, I didn't find the language-independent ones included with the game to be very helpful at all).
