In Kheops, players are rival architects taking part in the building of the great pyramid. In turn, player place tiles (rooms and corridors) and pawns (workers, priests, mummy, and even pharaoh) on the pyramid building site. Of course, some tiles have special features, like sarcophagi or curses. There are even rumors of rotating corridors and secret networks.
When the pyramid is built, the player controlling the longest networks is named Pharaoh's architect, while his rival is fed to the crocodiles. Yes, the same crocodiles from Cleopatra and the Architects.
