Description Edit | History

From the Publisher:
Spring/Summer 2010
Pitch: Ancient Egypt... The temple of Sobek is being built and the market place is thriving. Loads of goods arrive by ship for the construction site and it is a race to pick the best items in order to sell them with the most profit.

Of course, with so much at stake, not all the moves are legal, corruption is everywhere and cordiality scarce. Because in the end there can be only one winner!

---

Famous Bruno Cathala's (Cyclades, Dice Town, Shadows Over Camelot, Mr. Jack, MOW...) latest design is a fast paced card game well suited for the whole family, with tactical choices, luck, and a bit of cunning.

Each turn you have to choose if you want to take a goods card, play a character with a special power or display a set of matching goods cards.
While taking a profitable card, you often collect corruption points, which add up in a pile in front of you.
During each each round five sets of nine cards are put at the players' disposal. When all cards are gone, there is a scoring for all displayed cards, but beware, the player with the most corruption sigils sees his income almost cut down in half.

The game ends after 3 rounds or if a player has reached a hundred points.

9 Sobek Player Aid
The "event tokens" table is slightly smaller than the "Character" table but I centered it, cut out both tables and put them back to back. I then laminated the table and it works. The tables look a little "cramped" but I wanted something that would fit inside the game box and still be usable. Feel free to adjust or alter as you see fit. Please post your improvements so I can print them off for my game :) Minor changes (capitalizing first letter of each paragraph) and added some color.
