Empires rise and fall: in the buffer areas and crossroads between civilizations, however, a clever ruler can sometimes adopt new ideas, establish trade, and found a city state – such as the great Phoenicians cities of Tyre and Sidon – that will outlast many neighbouring empires.
Phoenicia is a strategy game of bidding and development for 2 to 5 players, ages 12 and up. Each player rules a settlement located on the shores of the fertile crescent in the middle east more than 3000 years ago. During play, you spend wealth to expand your settlement, adding tiles and tokens to it. The first player to successfully found a city state is the winner.
