NILE – A Game of Ancient Agriculture

NILE is a simple set collection game with 5 suits, each suit representing an authentic crop type in ancient Egypt. Fast and easy to play. Great for the EURO-GAME lovers!

In NILE, players draft cards to plant fields. At the beginning of every turn there is a flood, which determines which fields will harvest that turn. Harvested resources are placed into storage piles, which ultimately determine the winner of the game. Players spend the game competing over resources, trading at markets and even making offerings to Hapi, the god of the Nile. The winner will be the player who defends their fields and manages their storage pile most effectively.
