Set in ancient Mesopotamia, a cradle of civilization, during a time when the location of Ur was a coastal region, players work to build the Great City of Ur, expand its districts, and establish themselves as powerful builders.
Tabannusi: Builders of Ur contains a stunning board showing the city of Ur divided into 5 regions, each tied to a specific color die. There are 3 building districts, 1 port district and 1 temple district.
Each turn, your worker activate one of these districts. When activating a district, you first take a die from the district. This die matches the color of the district and has two functions:
1) The die itself becomes a resource of that color.
2) The value of the die will determine which district your worker will activate on the following turn.
Through various actions you will be able to grow your influence in the various districts, expanding construction sites and turning them into buildings to score valuable victory points. But you also exert your influence in the temple district in order to earn the king's favor. In the port district you may obtain ships with important abilities and for scoring victory points.
You must use your actions wisely and always make sure that you keep an eye on the general timing of the game. The moment a district is emptied of dice, a scoring occurs.
