Everyone knows of the pyramids on the Nile – eternal monuments of a powerful and beautiful culture, that can still take our breath away. The players (oddly contemporary pharaohs) choose their sites, build their pyramids, and thank Amun-Re and the other gods for their bounty.
Each pharoah wants to build the most pyramids. To accomplish this, they must first acquire a province, where they can trade and farm. With their profits they can buy new provinces and building-stones to erect pyramids. For all their actions players must make clever use of their power cards, and always offer appropriate sacrifices to Amun-Re.
