Alternate Names: Imhotep: Budowniczy Egiptu

Description:

In Imhotep, the players become builders in Egypt who want to emulate the first and best-known architect there, namely Imhotep.

Over six rounds, they move wooden stones by boat to create five seminal monuments, and on a turn, a player chooses one of four actions: Procure new stones, load stones on a boat, bring a boat to a monument, or play an action card.

While this sounds easy, naturally the other players constantly thwart your building plans by carrying out plans of their own. Only those with the best timing - and the stones to back up their plans - will prove to be Egypt's best builder.

Imhotep was the first and most famous master builder of ancient Egypt. He is considered one of the earliest polymaths in the history of humanity. For example, he is said to have been responsible for building the very first pyramid in Egypt - the Pyramid of Djoser in Saqqara. Can you match his accomplishments in creating monuments for the ages?

You will need ships to transport blocks of stone to various building sites. But you will not be the only one making decisions about where to send the ships and their cargoes. Your opponents will have their own plans and will try to prevent your success. …



A) Market

For each stone delivered here, the owner of the stone can immediately take any 1 face-up market card.

Important: The delivered stones must be returned to the quarry after taking the card.

Drawn cards must be placed face up in front of you. The red cards must be played immediately. These are then placed in the discard pile.

The blue market cards can be played exactly once as an action in a later turn of the player who draws it. The purple statue cards and the green decoration cards will earn you points at the end of the game. …



All site boards have an A side and a B side. You should always start playing with just the A sides. Later on, you can try the B sides. You can also play with a mix of A and B sides. Why not try various combinations?

B) Market

The B side works just like the A side, except for the following difference:

At the start of the round, place 2 cards face down on the card space at bottom right (instead of 1 face-up card). For a stone delivered to the market, you can pick up both cards and look at them. Then, select 1 card to keep. Place the other card on the discard pile.



In this section, you will find an overview of all of the market cards and a more detailed description of the way they work. Wait to read these explanations until a given market card comes into play.

Entrance, Sarcophagus, and Paved Path (2 of each)

When you get a market card like this, immediately place 1 of your stones from the quarry on the corresponding site. The stone is placed on the next available space, following the normal rules of building on that site. The card is then placed on the discard pile. …
