"In Kemet, players each deploy the troops of an Egyptian tribe and use the mystical powers of the gods of ancient Egypt – along with their powerful armies – to score points in glorious battles or through invasion of rich territories. A game is typically played to 8 or 10 victory points, which may be accrued through winning attacks, controlling temples, controlling fully-developed pyramids, sacrificing to the gods, and wielding particular magical powers.
The conquest for the land of Kemet takes place over two phases: Day and Night. During the day, choose an action amongst the nine possible choices provided by your player mat and perform it immediately. Once every player has taken five actions, night falls, with players gathering Prayer Points from their temples, drawing Divine Intervention cards, and determining the turn order before the start of the new day.
As the game progresses, they can use Prayer Points to acquire power tiles. Some of these enroll magical creatures and have them join their troops. In addition to intimidating enemies, these creatures provide special powers!
Detailed miniature components represent the combat units and the supernatural creatures that are summoned to enhance them. Combat is resolved through cards chosen from a diminishing six-card hand and enhanced by bonuses."
This is designed to cause conflict but with limited arimes. Micah had only two pyramids bur quickly gat a monster, all of which set the game off
" This was our second game of Suburbia at BGA. Micah hopped out to a handy lead with a fancy restaurant, but Tim stayed in touch with the waterfront realtor. Swami went the airport route, my own approach was mixed. By game end Tim claimed a tidy victory through claiming the majority of bonuses. > > I like the production and the theme here a lot. The tile interactions are clever. To me, though, 4 players is too many. The tiles vanished too quickly and the luck of the draw was too pronounced. I want to play this again ASAP with three to test my theory!"
His other comment "We played Suburbia only. Other table were juggle bits of wood."
"On Godfrey's table, Godfrey, Tim Micah and Swami played Suburbia.
On my table we played Five Points through the morning.
Scores: Swami 38 Dave 28 Peter 25 Colin 15
After lunch and Swami moving to the other table we played a couple of games of Turm Bauer. The first was won by Dave when I knocked the tower over. We were joined by potential new member Philip for the second game which I won.
