You are a Nomarque. Pharaoh has appointed you to head a metropolis to make it the most prosperous in Egypt. The Nile finishes its flood and the lands of the Valley deliver their wealth. Organize the collection of resources, build the most lucrative shops, supply them with merchandise and earn the most Debens for the Pharaoh. The player who will make the best use of the riches of the Nile Valley will be declared the winner.
At each turn, you raise resources and decide immediately on their use: supply one of your Boutiques to make money, or spend it to build new Quarters and offer you new opportunities. Your choices are irreversible. Resources stored in stores can no longer be used, but those that have not been spent at the end of the turn will be permanently lost.
