Board Game: Faiyum
Friedemann Friese game about developing the area around the Nile river by building a system of canals and dikes to reclaim the land surrounded by desert and inhabited by crocodiles in order to turn it into a granary for Egypt during the reign of the pharaoh Amenemhet III.

Build roads, farms, and other buildings to develop the land, and a card market reminiscent of Power Grid to win favour (points) with the pharaoh. Planning, clever card play, and blocking - but no direct conflict - other players may even use your buildings too, since everything you build is owned by the pharaoh.

It reportedly plays great with 2 players and works fantastic solo as well.
