Popular demand before it was even announced!

If you check the forums of Sobek: 2 Players on BoardGameGeek, you'll see post after post asking for US availability. Well, we are excited to announce that we'll be distributing the English version of Sobek!

This is a re-imagining of the titular card game released back in 2010. The rules have been adapted and balanced to suit two player strategy, addressing initial player feedback.

Gameplay summary!

Each turn, choose one of the available Goods tile from the board, then move the Ankh token according to the markings on the chosen tile. This determines and limits the tiles your opponent can choose on their turn!

The more tiles there are between the Ankh pawn and the tile you take, the more Corruption you'll gain for taking it. The least corrupt player will earn extra coins at the end of the game. But, of course, it's the wealthiest merchant who will win!

Corruption comes at a cost!

Sobek is a 2-player game by acclaimed designers Bruno Cathala (7 Wonders Duel, Kingdomino, Five Tribes) and Sébastien Pauchon (Jaipur, Jamaica) in which players must form the best sets of goods, while cleverly controlling your opponent's options. A cast of colorful characters and pirogues can assist you along the way. But remember to avoid the temptation of corruption, lest you forget that corruption always comes at a cost...
