The game is Kingdom of Solomon. Before you think, "O great a Bible-themed game, this is not going to be pretty", hear me out. This is a worker placement game for two to four players and takes about an hour to play. The goal is to build Solomon's Temple. You do this by using your six workers and placing them on a map (consisting of mostly modern day Israel, but also contains other countries within the region, most notably Lebanon), or there are several special locations you use, and finally you can place them in any building you have constructed. The point of doing this is to collect resources, special abilities, fortune cards, and victory points. You will then use the resources you collected order to build buildings that give you victory points and special abilities that only you can complete. You can also build part of the temple and collect a high priest token or gain victory points. If you have the most high priest tokens, you have the privilege of another special ability and you score an additional twenty victory points at the end of the game. The game ends when the temple has been built or someone has built all of their buildings. At the end of the game, the player with the most victory points will be the winner.
Kingdom of Solomon is a solid worker placement game. It is also probably the best Bible/Torah- themed game that I have ever played (and growing up in church I played a lot of them). The game was fairly easy to learn with a small, concise rulebook. I don't think this is a good game for non-gamers as it is very strategy driven, and some of the concepts might be hard to pick up on right away. Even so, the game runs very smoothly, and is pretty self explanatory throughout the game. If you do come along a snag, the rulebook is easy to access. That being said, I did feel that Kingdom of Solomon was missing something. I can't put my finger on it, but I think that an expansion to this game would be well served. I could easily see adding an additional player, and more building and fortune cards.
