2000 BC a new empire is about to emerge in the north of Mesopotamia. Nomadic tribes gather under the leadership of Assur, a city-state dedicated to the cult of the powerful mountain god. But life in the desert is precarious, and before ruling the world, one must first learn to survive...Players take the role of the chiefs of nomadic tribes. They travel the desert to find food and build wells and ziggurats. During the three reigns which make up the game, they try to spread the domination of their tribe over Assyria. Contents:

|Assyria is one of those games, like many Euro games, that require you to play it more than once to see it at its best.
In Assyria, you are a nomadic tribe living between two rivers that flood occasionally.
Each round, you pick cards that allow you to gain food, which is needed to expand your tribe by placing huts on the board to gain more income and points. A cluster of huts let you build wells for immediate points whereas gaining income lets you build ziggurats which in turn earns you more points
Twice during the game, the floods come and huts are lost, but then this opens up more places in which you can expand again.
There are different ways to win, by concentrating on different areas, such as gaining income, building wells, investing in camels or impressing dignataries.
This is a really good game and scales well whether you play as a couple or play it as a group.
These volume discounts are in addition to sale and special offer prices.
