Great Game

We really enjoyed playing this game, it did not take us that long to learn and it only take about 40 minutes to play which is great when you don't have hours to play.

Can't tell who's won until the last minute!

This has been our family lockdown game after two of our boys played it in Thirsty Meeples, Bath in Feb and we subsequently bought it. The game takes almost exactly 40mins to play and has variations in the set up so it's never the same game. The rules seem complicated but aren't once you get going. Each zone has it's own game rules and yet the concept as a whole works so well. Our family of boys are 12, 16, 17, 19 and with it being a 4 player game, we switch around who is playing often. If you like a game that requires thinking ahead, second guessing what your opponents next move will be but aiming high yourself you'll love it too. Recommend.

Great game

This game is fast and light but with difficult decisions. With only 4 options per turn, and each one only taking a few seconds, there is little downtime. You are always involved as other people’s moves will change your plans or ruin them entirely. Has a large amount of take that that some people might not enjoy but I loved. Top quality components and production quality.

OVERVIEW

Imhotep. The legendary architect of the Egyptian monuments. His awe-inspiring structures and brutal tactics earned him divine status among ancient Egyptians. Can you match his ruthless determination to build the most revered monuments?

To do this, you will need to transport stone blocks on ships from your quarry to different construction sites. But you alone do not choose where the ships go. Your opponents have monumental plans of their own and want to prevent your success. A fierce competition for the precious stone resources plays out. Only with the right strategy and a little luck can you succeed.

In Imhotep, the players take on the roles of ancient Egyptian architects. Over six rounds, they try to transport their stone blocks to end up in the most valuable positions at five construction sites: pyramid, obelisk, chamber tomb, temple, and market. But a player can only choose one of three actions in a turn: excavate a new stone block from the quarry, load a block onto a ship, or move a ship to a construction site. From there, the massive stone blocks must be unloaded in order from bow to stern and placed on the sites in preset sequences. Depending on where the blocks end up, players earn different point values either immediately or at the end of the game.

In each turn, you must weigh your options for getting your own stones into place and thwarting your opponents’ placement plans. You must get your blocks to the right places, in the right order, at the right time to be the greatest architect.
