Settlers of Canaan is not quite as good as The Cheops
variant. It is cheaper ($62 vs. $30), tho.
I think the developement cards are the best part, but cost
too much considering the production rolls our group had over
several playings. Plus without gold, buying the right to build a stone is too expensive, being a resource card.
That is 4 times the cost in Cheops (to use a port).
Also, ships give you more options in Cheops, although we
added more low production hexes to add speed and flavor.
(Why have so many blank hexes? It only cost $2.00 to copy the board if you don't have the original hexes).
To sum up: Cannan feels like a clone of Cheops.
