Children of the Nile: Alexandria

Children of the Nile: Alexandria is an addition to the original Children of the Nile game, adding a new mini-campaign focused on the rise of the city of Alexandria.

Using the unique city-building dynamics of Children of the Nile, players can carve out a new dynasty to rule all of Egypt, and build the greatest city of the ancient world. Each civilian in the city is a fully developed person, with wants and needs. Tend to their needs and they will work for you so that you can create a powerful empire and a lasting legacy.

In Alexandria, players assume the role of the new Pharaohs of Egypt, in a three-scenario mini-campaign set during and after the final stages of Alexander the Great’s career. Strategically harness resources to consolidate power as Alexander’s former lieutenants vie for control of his empire, all while growing a massive new Egyptian capital and using creative flare to construct new massive monuments: the Great Lighthouse and Great Library of Alexandria.


  •  Mini-campaign comprised of three new scenarios
  • Two new monuments: the Great Lighthouse and Great Library
  • Multi-stage monument construction
  • A new World Level map depicting the Mediterranean rim
  • A new Greek raider
  • User-created scenarios

The game requires Children of the Nile: Enhanced Edition to run.
