The Great Zimbabwe - Rules of Play says:

The Great Zimbabwe is a game about building a trade based civilization in ancient Africa. Players strive to build the most impressive monuments to one god of their choice. Each of the twelve gods offers a unique blessing, but each also requires a different amount of work to win the game. Building the monuments is done by developing a logistics network stretching across the region. Through this network, players produce and obtain ritual goods to raise their monuments and bring honour to the god of their choice.

You only get one action per turn, so be smart! The Great Zimbabwe is a race for victory, in which you decide how far you want to go and at what speed. Then other players' decisions change everything...
