Thanks for the rules!

The game both looks and sounds interesting.
Hope you guys have had copies ready in time to give the Spiel des Jahres jury
as you might have another winner on your hand!

Played the game twice over the Weekend - and won both times!
Cool

Very nice game, but very confusing the first time you play it.
Not sure how popular it will become as it is probably too complex to be another SdJ-winner, and has not enough 'meat' to sustain interest from the hardcore gamers. And it is a pestilence to fit all the pieces back into the box!

Our 4-player game was really good, but it became less interesting with only 3 players as a couple of the special cards lose their importance.

It played well once you got the hang of it, and I will be looking forward to playing again during the week.

Thanks for the review on your first games, GreatDane! I had no opportunity to play Cleopatra till now. Hope we can gather some people next weekend! I really like the rules und the components and I'm looking forward to play it!

For some reason, I had difficulty looking at the rules also. Tried opening and downloading on two computers and the file was corrupted each time. Had to wait until work to print them out (but in color at least!) and read the rules on the way home.

The game seems pretty straight-forward on one reading of the rules. Looks like it will be a fun "visual" game as you construct he palace. The only fear I have is that it does not seem to have a lot of re-playabilty. Of course you have the randomness of cards and different priorities but it seems this would be a game I would bring out for new people only to introduce them to new types of games. But hopefully, I am wrong!

Obviously the game will progress in the same way duing most games, but as the game ends when 5 of the 6 types of building materials run out it can develop slightly different from game to game. And as usual will the way the cards appear make a huge difference: You can have players who will never see a piece of wood and another who is getting more corrupt cards that he really wants.

But I agree that it is probably a game which we won't play much. I will put in the same league as Mystery at the Abbey and Shadows over Camelot: I love both games, but I wouldn't want to play them on a regular basis.

If Cleopatra would be in the same league as Shadows over Camelot, it would be great! Laughing We really love SoC and are playing it since August 2005 again and again, at least every second time our group meets. I would say it is the game, we replay most of all. Very Happy
We will try Cleopatra next weekend. I don't expect it to be the best game ever. But I think my group will enjoy to play it and we will have an nice evening. After studying the rules I feel confident that Cleopatra is such interesting that we will like to replay it sometimes. Smile

To those who have already played it: What mechanism and what parts of the game did you enjoy, what didn't suit you? What component is higher, luck or strategy/tactic?
