Description Edit | History

In Kemet, players each deploy the troops of an Egyptian tribe and use the mystical powers of the gods of ancient Egypt – along with their powerful armies – to score points in glorious battles or through invasion of rich territories. A game is typically played to 8 or 10 victory points, which may be accrued through winning attacks, controlling temples, controlling fully-developed pyramids, sacrificing to the gods, and wielding particular magical powers.

The conquest for the land of Kemet takes place over two phases: Day and Night. During the day, choose an action amongst the nine possible choices provided by your player mat and perform it immediately. Once every player has taken five actions, night falls, with players gathering Prayer Points from their temples, drawing Divine Intervention cards, and determining the turn order before the start of the new day.

As the game progresses, they can use Prayer Points to acquire power tiles. Some of these enroll magical creatures and have them join their troops. In addition to intimidating enemies, these creatures provide special powers!

Detailed miniature components represent the combat units and the supernatural creatures that are summoned to enhance them. Combat is resolved through cards chosen from a diminishing six-card hand and enhanced by bonuses.

0 Board to keep used combat cards / Tablero para cartas de combate usadas
To ensure that the combat cards used from different players are not mixed I created these boards. After using the cards, players will leave them in its respective colour. There are a version with images from combat and another with the different gods (both for 4 or 5 players). They are designed to be printed in A4 size / Para no confundir las cartas de combate ya usadas, he creado estos tableros, en los que se podrán ir dejando las cartas de acuerdo a su color. Hay una version con escenas de combate y otra con las distintas divinidades (ambas para 4 o 5 jugadores). Estan diseñadas para ser impresas en A4.
