Description: Mysterious guy's Player-less "Land of Canaan" geographical map was so impressive and realistic that this Scenario was made to include the Players that corresponded to the major cultural groups indigenous to this region:
The Israelites, Canaanites, Philistines, Egyptians, Phoenicians, and Assyrians.
In this playable version, the Players begin in their cultures' historical centers, there is a Story map, Instruction Screen messages, and berries near Jerusalem in order to balance the berry patches around the other starting cities. The Israelites also begin with the Ark of the Covenant as a decoration.
The whole map was a large one, which means that the game play best fits 6 players. To make victory for your Player quite achievable, the 6 Players are divided into two sides, which gives you two allies. Player 1 is the Israelites, but the other 5 Players are open and playable in Multiplayer.
Standard Victory conditions are used, so to win you can destroy the enemy forces, capture and hold the Ruins, or build a Wonder. My goal was for the map to be balanced so that an average player would find it average difficulty on a Medium Difficulty level. If you are an Advanced Player, it can still be enjoyable if you are looking for a more relaxed game with the help of allies.
