Players are Egyptian nobles at the time of the pharaohs, preparing for their death and burial in the Valley of the Kings. In the Egyptian religion, when you die you can take it with you.
Egyptians, therefore, stocked their tombs with food, canopic jars (for storing their organs), weapons, works of art, and jewelry. They hired architects, engineers, and masons to build their tombs.
These artifacts and individuals are shown on the cards of the game. You earn victory points for the cards that you store in your tomb, and the player with the most victory points wins. â€¦
