Description:

New Game from Daily Magic Games. Worker placement, resource management, monument building, open negotiations. Become the next Pharaoh of Egypt.

Pharaoh is dead and his funerary barge sails slowly down the Nile toward his tomb where his spirit will stand before the judgement of Osiris.

Pharaoh had no offspring so tradition holds that the governors of the land be tasked with building monuments to Pharaoh’s glory so that Osiris will favor his spirit in the afterlife. Accordingly, Pharaoh’s successor will be the governor who builds the greatest tribute to the late king’s memory.

Resources and laborers are limited, the gods are capricious, and time is short--the memorials must be completed before Pharaoh’s barge reaches his tomb.

The winner will be the governor with the most glory points at the end of the game. Glory is earned by building monuments along the river and by winning the seasonal bid for Regent.
