Great video, but I think there might be a couple rule errors:

1) Huts on the rivers score camels. In the video it says 2 camels for each hut on a river, but I think it is 3 camels for the first hut on each river, and two camels for each additional hut on each river.

2) The video shows the turn order reset with the person who took the best cards getting the first position for the next turn. I think this is incorrect, the person who got the best cards last round gets the last position in turn order.

3) Player with the most influence (not huts) gets a value in prestige points equal to the sum of the expansion cards. Then take away the highest expansion card, and player with next most influence get the sum of the remaining expansion cards.

That's the way I read the rules, but stand to be corrected if I'm wrong.

You're absolutely right!

1) The video is wrong, you are correct. 3 camels for your first hut on a river, 2 camels for each subsequent hut on the same river.

2) If by "better" you mean right-most goes last and left-most goes first, you're right. Turn order changes after the card taking phase. The discs move up to the turn order track in the same order, left to right, they were in on the card taking track. They video doesn't show this.

3) Where to even start with the flood scoring... First, the dignitary points are not scored on the track. In other words, if you have a hut in the middle "2" section, you do not get 2 points on the track and your plow card back. You get 2 points toward the influence scoring and your plow card. The dignitary points are used only to show who has gathered the most influence. Sum the value of each player's huts in the dignitary column, rank players in order highest to lowest. Then, as you describe, the players score the sum of the round cards, with the highest round card taken away after each player.

They did get right the one thing we found we were doing wrong, which was resetting the ziggarut multiplier to zero at the end of each reign.

I, too, am astonished when free resources on the internet have minor flaws.
