By the end of the 1001st night, the sultan Shahryar wishes to build the new realm of Almadi (designed by Mathieu Bossu, François Gandon) to honor the intelligence and wisdom of his wife Sheherazade. As the sultan’s advisor, you are the architect of this great work. Design a thriving territory with sumptuous palaces, fresh oases, opulent markets and majestic caravans. Skillfully arrange the landscapes and use their effects to turn your work into a great success!
Players build the Almadi realm in front of them by arranging the different Landscape types to the right of their starting tile. During their turn, each player chooses a Landscape tile from one of the rows on the central board and places it in the row with the same number in their realm. By placing this tile, the player can activate the effects of adjacent tiles.
At the end of the Almadi game, players score points based on the landscape layout in their realm, the number of rubies collected, the activation of certain effects and the royal objectives they have completed. They also score points if they have used the characters.
The player who scores the most points at the end of the game will be the winner.
