Very interesting game! While physical skill is a significant part of the game, it does not dominate the game; however, certain options just won't make sense if your opponents' sledges are positioned this way or that, or are laden with more cubes of stones than yours, et cetera. I'm itching to play this some more!

Underrated here on the 'geek... it's actually pretty good. The towing mechanism for the sleds is pretty unique, and it seems to get a lot of attention from people passing by. While the English rules included are sometimes cryptic, they do all work out eventually.

Would rate it higher, but for the down time.

Easily the -worst- translation from German to English that I have ever had the misfortune to read. I'm convinced there's a game here, and a good one at that, but until I can get a better translation, it has to remain on the shelf. When I say worst translation, believe me, I mean it. It's as if someone ran the whole rules document through Babel Fish and then decided to make it even more disjointed.

Really no excuse for this, especially since English is required for all students in Germany!

A rather decent game, actually. A shame that the English rules are so terrible.

My rating is subject to extreme change with further play - it's a very odd game. It's a fairly standard majorities game but with a substantial action component - the sledges full of building pieces have to be dragged around the board with a sort of pulley contraption. (I will edit the description to make this more clear when I have time.)

A very fun game, but I feel that it takes too long to play. I believe that the dexterity element of the game, although thematically brilliant, adds time without strategy to the game.

This has a very clever mechanic, but the game built around the mechanic seems a bit weak. Also, the parts look nice, but you should just keep a tube of superglue in the box to repair parts.

A very clever dexterity mechanism wrapped in a rather dull pyramid game. Down time between turns can be high. If you yearn for Egypt, try Tal der Koenig or Amun Re instead.

Interesting pulling mechanic, which I could do without. The game has some strategy.

Just want to play this one, since the mechanism for moving sleds is so different.
