El Alamein (a standalone expansion to Barbarossa) is a historical deck building card game for 2-5 players in which the German military fights the British for control of Africa! Using an in-game deck-building mechanism one buys cards from an open card pool to build a strong strategic deck. The ultimate objective is to conquer the city of Alexandria. If Alexandria falls the player with the most victory points wins. Victory points are acquired by conquering different cities and strategic positions throughout the game.
