Product Description

While whole forests crumble to appease our desire for wooden games from Germany, we can hardly complain when they continue to be so outstanding. This is a sophisticated construction and conquest game employing large wooden pieces of different shapes and sizes. Players form the game board using 120 wooden tiles. The game includes other chunks of wood for huts and for male and female figures. This game is available in two editions: standard Sumera, and Sumera Exotic, the same game made with special exotic woods.

Sumerian clans migrated into a well-defined area, where they built cities and founded an advanced civilization. In the game Sumera, you control the destiny of a clan, expand its territory and marry its young men and women to representatives of other clans in order to increase your power. Will you be able to make your clan the most powerful in Sumera?

At the start of the game there is a deserted, connected and fruitful land. You begin on a square of your choice and expand your territory by building on top of foreign tiles, skillfully placing your people, making useful marriages and attacking figures that get in your way.

The victory formula is the number of tiles of your color that are connected to one of your huts plus the number of your unmarried people on the board, all multiplied by the number of marriages you have concluded. Your aim is therefore to make as many marriages as possible. If you do this better than the others, you become the monarch of Sumera.
