Wadi is situated in the heat and drought of the ancient Egypt desert. Water is scarce and you try to build your shadoof (a sort of waterpump) as close to the wadi as possible. A wadi, however, is a desert river. Water flows though it for only a small part of the year. The rest of the time it is dry. In the short wet period, you try to pump as much water as possible to the water reservoirs. Preferably in the vicinity of fertile land, because the more fertile the land, the better the harvest... and the better the harvest, the more points a player earns.
But other players might have noticed the same good spot, where you want to build your shadoof. And when you build your shadoof there, they won't help you fill the water reservoirs. But if you hesitate too long, the other players might pump dry the wadi. Or worse, the water streams down the wadi and the land close to your shadoof remains dry and barren.

Have been to Spiel 07 and bought some secondhand games and some new ones. One of the latter includes "Wadi" from Emmagames. Because I read some stuff about Wadi on the internet I decided to visit their stand. I played the game there with some other visitors, lost twice and.... decided to buy it. After having played it at home a few times I must say it's an interesting and well thought-out game. You'll need some tactical skills to enjoy it but that's a challenge in my opinion. It's also very well made including a glass(!) made piece called "the talisman". I recommend the game to anyone who has some tactical potential.
