Tigris & Euphrates

If you go and take the field of your enemy, the enemy will come and take your field.
–Ancient Babylonian Proverb

Tigris & Euphrates is an award-winning tile placement game of rival dynasties designed by Reiner Knizia and set in ancient Mesopotamia at the time of the first cities. Two to four players take on the roles of rulers building civilizations, competing for land, and striving to strike a balance between commerce, agriculture, housing, and religion.

Advance your civilization, grow your dynasty, and accumulate victory points by strategically placing tiles, leaders, and even monuments on the board. As civilizations grow, wars may erupt over the region’s limited land and resources, or another ruler may incite rebellion among your people, forcing you to fight for your territory. The ruler who has the greatest amount of victory points in the weakest aspect of their civilization wins!

Tigris & Euphrates contains:

  • One rulebook
  • A double-sided game board
  • Over 150 civilization, unification, and catastrophe tiles
  • Over 150 victory point and treasure tokens
  • 27 detailed plastic components representing leaders, monuments, and civilization buildings
  • Four player screens
  • One embossed cloth bag
