T&E is a good gamer's game. It is a bit abstract but its unique scoring mechanism and hidden information makes it a winner.

James Mzik - Westpark Gaming Group
The components are top notch and the gameplay is never stagnant. It's fast, lending itself to several plays in a session.

I am not very fond of knizias' games, but this is one of the more solid games he produced. It is a tile laying game with a VP system characteristic of his games with a very thin theme more like an abstract one, but the game is very tense and enjoyable there is conflict all the time. recommended

Rob Markley - Mt Albert - Auckland NZ
Although seemingly quite abstract I think there is hidden historical perception in this tale of the first civilisation. I've always thought this game is one that has the potential to be the chess of a future era - it is that good and has that kind of staying power.

Danny - NYC Meetup
This is a 2 to 4 player tile laying game, where players build up kingdoms of tiles on the board, and try to position their leaders to their best advantage. The game is won by taking cubes in four colours, but your score is the colour you have the least of. Ingenious mechanics and subtle deep game play. Simply wonderful. Thumbs up by Me

This game is often placed in Knizia's "tile laying trilogy" or quadrilogy, depending on the commentator. Though the theme is not as accessible to a non-gamer, Tigris and Euphrates is absolutely as catchy and entertaining as Samurai (and I think even better). Don't get it because it was designed by a minor celebrity in the field, certainly don't get it for the historical theme, get it because it's a great game, very sneaky and consistently intriguing.
