Why Pyramids only? I mean its a good option if you want a long game, but...
also, are you saying Pyramids=13?
Hi Phillip. Because we haven't reduced the amount of Cities and caravans available to the players. Rather we've made sure that they set up next to each other.
In this context getting a set of 9 is quite easy, it will be a set of 12 (or 13 if you play the pyramids that way) for the win.
Intention of the variants was to increase conflict and allow a few good battles before we find who has the upper hand. I think play time would be 3 hours maybe 4.
