When I first came to BGG many years ago, I would often see posts where someone would say that they were just introduced to eurogames by someone. Tantalized by these different style games, and having played Settlers until they had their fill, they wanted to know what else was out there. Almost unanimous, the replies would have Tigris & Euphrates as the game to take that next step on that road to boardgame geekdom.

Now enjoy this Knizia classic on Android. Already available on iOS, the folks at Codito Development and Sage Board Games have now released Tigris and Euphrates to the Google Play Store.


From the App Description wrote:
Tigris & Euphrates is set in the ancient fertile crescent with players building civilizations through tile placement.

Your goal is to develop all 4 of the key spheres of civilization: Settlements, Temples, Farms, and Markets. To do this, you will position your leaders, create and extend kingdoms, build monuments, and resolve conflicts. Tension arises when kingdoms connect and leaders clash on the board, with only one leader of each type surviving. You will thus aquire victory points in each of the four spheres. The winner is the player who develops their civilization in the most balanced way, without revealing a sphere of weakness.

Features:
Visually stunning graphics utilizing traditional board game design
Immersive theme music
Full tutorial and in-game hints
Support for three modes of play:
- Solo play with varying degrees of AI difficulty
- "Pass and play" with 2 to 4 local human players with or without AI
- "Hotseat" (around the table) play for tablets

Coming soon: turn-based online multiplayer!

Currently the app allows local multiplayer, but the developers say that online support is coming, but because of the added testing involved, wanted to get the main game released.
