Not as scary as the back of the box makes out, once you get your bearings it is fairly intuitive. The main problem for first time gamers is that resources are not gained through production but by 'trading up'. I really like this mechanism, which is a great reflection of ancient Sumer.

Finally another great three player game. I like The End of the Triumvirate but this is even better! Optimization and war! Abit like a thematic Vinci.

Certainly another Wallace gamer's game nicely designed for only three players but maybe a bit long for what it is. Still, it keeps you thinking throughout the game on how to get points.

Another brilliant game by Martin Wallace. Components are top notch. The game is a delicate balance that you have to keep between military expansion and trade. Many tough decisions. You need to realize the limited number of resources that you have available in each turn. The theme blends perfectly with the game mechanics. It is a 3 hour game for 3 players but it worth to play it. And you will play it again!

This game is made for three players and is in my opinion the best one I have tried for that number of players. three Player games are to and fro type games that require a lot of planning and strategy to out wit your opponents

multiple resources, playing as the residents of Sumer as well as would be conquerors, limited actions, variable turn order, EXCELLENT!

Highly interactive and deeply strategic. The 3 player tension ebbs and flows as the choices switch back and forth between economic, military and territorial concerns. Wallace at his finest.

Design:- Area influence meets trade.
Execution:- Neat historical translation.
Experience:- Unsure the balance between trade and warfare is sufficient.
Presentation:- Excellent Treefrog quality - wooden armies are very nice!

An excellent account of the rise of ancient civilisation. It's particularly difficult to find three-player games that play as well as this one does; especially since most of the time such games are designed with even numbers in mind. Hats off once again to Martin Wallace.

I think this may be Wallace's best game with direct conflict. Oh, and don't run out of textiles like I did

Martin Wallace scores big time with this one. A heavier title that takes the better part of a game to understand how the different parts inter-relate. Timing is a big part of effective play. Once you understand how it all comes together, it is a VERY entertaining ride. Another play or 2 to confirm my initial impressions and I'm confident it will break into my top 10. A half point deduction for game length (3+ hours).

Once you get the rules digested (they are not easy to grasp), the game is great. The first round, I was clueless, but then it started to come together and was tense and fun. Easier to learn than God's Playground.

Martin returns to his roots. This is a great three-player civ game. The greatest three-player civ game. I can now fully commit to the idea of trading Triumvirate. I don't give any game that I've only played three times a 10, so it's a 9.
