Product Description

Follow in the Wake of Alexander the Great, buy settlements from him and vie for his favor. The map for "Cheops" corresponds to the historical and geographical conditions of the time. Each player represents an Egyptian family. First, the players build roads, ships and settlements. The Pharaoh soon expresses the desire to build a large pyramid. But that is not simple. Egypt is richly blessed with wool and grain from the Nile deltas and quarries in the south, but wood and ore must be imported. These will come from the productive ore regions beyond the Red Sea and the forest-rich areas of Palestine. With sufficient gold, however, a player can buy what they cannot produce. The player who contributes the most stones to the building of the pyramid is richly rewarded by the Pharaoh. Quite the opposite befalls the players who contributed fewer stones.

This edition contains the same components as Die Siedler von Catan: Historische Szenarien I: Cheops & Alexander der Groe. Only the cover art has changed.

This is a nice extension of your Catan-experience :)
February 05, 2002

To say this in only a few words: both scenarios are interesting and appealing. They surely add to the fun 'Catan' can supply.

I like the Cheops expansion best: buy pieces of stone for the pyramid being build.

The Alexander expansions adds a new concept to the game of Catan: bidding for settlements!


An Excellent addition to Basic Settlers
January 20, 2000

Cheops and Alexander, two historical scenarios for Die Siedler von Catan, add extra depth and strategy to an already great game system. Do not be put off by the fact that this is only available in German, there is minimal text in the game, and the rules have been well translated into English. If you have the latest Mayfair edition of Settlers, the colours of the pieces will match closely enough.

Each scenario has its own extra quirks, which will please players who may be suffering from Settlers burn out. The board is well made and illustrated, and the rest of the components are very nice.

Alexander is a scenario that starts with no settlements and a random provision deck, while Cheops starts with three that must be built along the banks of the Nile. Alexander has an Alexander figurine that moves across the map, and in Cheops, players are trying to build the Pharoah's great pyramid. Both games still require smart trading, lots of player interaction, and smart development.

All in all, a neat addition to Settlers, and one that we'll be playing until Cities and Knights (Stadte & Ritter) arrives in English, and probably later as well.
