The Pre-dynastic Period walkthrough
Nubt / Naqada
As with C3, Pharaoh gradually introduces you to the things you’ll need to know in order to play the game.
- 6 Meager Shanties
A really easy one to get you started. Just put down a few houses on a corner, and wait for your population to reach 150. After that, you can put down a bazaar, granary and hunting lodge to get some food to your people. After that, it shold only take a short while to reach your objectives.
- 10 Ordinary Cottages
Slightly tougher, but not much. Put up a small housing blocks, and 3 or 4 gold mines. The village palace and temples to Bast (when they become available) will help to raise desirability. This is needed to get the ordinary cottages.
Perwadjyt / Buto
- Population – 600
- 10 Modest Homesteads
A medium housing block is needed here. Put in a couple of work camps and 4 or 5 fig farms – when the harvest is safely tucked away in the granary, you’ll be able to put up some industrial structures. 2 clay pits and 3 potters (and a storage yard, of course) will be sufficient, and will soak up some of the unemployment. When they become available, gardens, statues and plazas will give you the desirability boost you need to get the 10 Modest Homesteads.
