Board&Dice tees up Tabannusi: Builders of Ur

May 13, 2021 - 9:22pm


This fall, publisher Board&Dice will release Tabannusi: Builders of Ur, designed by David Spada and Daniele Tascini. This game is set in ancient Mesopotamia, where one to four players take on the roles of builders constructing the city of Ur. The game board is divided into five districts, each populated with dice of the color associated with the district.

On a player's turn, they will activate one of these districts, taking a die from the chosen district. The player will receive a resource based on the color of the die selected. The value of the die selected determines which district the player will activate on their following turn. Three of the five districts are building districts, where players will turn construction sites into buildings. The remaining districts are the port district and the temple district. The port district allows players to obtain ships with different abilities that score victory points. Exerting influence in the temple district will allow players to gain the king's favor. Whenever one of the five districts is emptied of dice, a scoring will occur. Successful players will need to plan ahead and successfully navigate the scoring tempo of the game. 

Tabannusi: Builders of Ur is scheduled to release in October 2021. Board&Dice previously has published other T titled designs by Daniele Tascini - Tekhenu: Obelisk of the Sun, Trismegistus: The Ultimate Formula, and Teotihuacan: City of Gods. No additional entries in the collaboration are expected based on the statement issued by Board&Dice earlier this year
