Ancient Civilizations of the Middle East
Publisher/Brand: GMT Games
Product Code: GMT2215
Ancient Civilizations of the Middle East is an exciting, easy-to-learn, easy-to-play in which players guide the civilizations through the Biblical era. Each civilization will fight to become the dominant power of its age through conquest and the building of cities, along with establishing the supremacy of its powerful Deity. The game includes 17 different civilizations, each with its own unique characteristics—from taking captives (instead of looting) to supremacy in siege warfare—and much more.
Ancient Civilizations of the Middle East is not a sequel nor an expansion to Ancient Civilizations of the Inner Sea but a standalone game using the same multiplayer and solitaire systems as its predecessor with many new and exciting features to such as Deities, Cultural Development, and religion.
Ancient Civilizations of the Middle East is not just one game, but many games. Besides the basic game, which can be played by up to six players, there are also 12 historical-based scenarios included. Solitaire Rules allow any scenario, including the basic game, to be played by a single player against one or more Non-Player Civilizations. The Non-Player Civilizations may be peaceful or hostile, and may change its attitude depending on the actions of the player.
If you want a War Game, you got it. If you want a friendly game, this is it too! It can be a friendly game of exploration, city building, trade, and faith. Players can make of Ancient Civilizations of the Middle East what they wish or imagine—how the game unfolds depends entirely on how the players want it to play. The duration of the game is also up to the players: from a multi-hour odyssey of all four Epochs to a pre-arranged shorter contest of an hour or two or to an agreed Sudden Death Victory Point threshold.
