The dream of creating a new civilization in the ancient Mesopotamia is at reach. Are you ready to lead there your population ? In the age of its maximum splendour, this vast and fertile geographical area was the scene of the destiny for some populations ,who had the ambition to settle in the richest and in the most strategically advantageous territories. Over the course of centuries these populations succeeded in developing all aspects of their civilization wisely. This was the main factor enabling them to found marvellous cities like Ur and to construct gigantic buildings like Ziggurats. Just like Mesopotamia ’s ancient Kings each player will have to achieve the highest prestige by dosing precisely the development of Agriculture, Trade, Politics, Culture and finally War, so that thanks to these efforts the long desired construction of five Ziggurats is completed.
If the King becomes guilty of Greed in building them, or pursues improperly the conquest of Lands, although alike, this could ultimately lead him to defeat. The intrinsic speed of the game, the simplicity of rules, the very alluring artwork, together with the smartness of the innumerable strategies which can be deployed, render Ur a gaming experience which you will play and play and keep playing again for a very, very long time!
