Ra - The Dice Game takes all the major thematic elements of "Ra" and uses them very creatively in a dice game. Pharaohs, The Nile, Civilizations, and Monuments as well as the occasional catastrophe are all here. Scoring is nearly identical to the standard version of Ra.
From the box: Remember Ra! Now Reiner has added dice to the game and in such a great way. Players still try to score by collecting Pharaohs, niles and floods, monuments and civilizations, but this time they roll dice and choose which to keep and which to re-roll. True to the original game, players must watch out for disasters and each of the three rounds ends when "Ra" shows up a set number of times, so players need to watch Ra and decide when the round may end and when they have more time. After three rounds, the player with the most points is the winner!
Contents: 1 game board, 92 wooden cubes, 5 dice, 1 Ra figure, 4 summary cards, rules.
The zipped file contains a Print-and-Play adaption of "RA - the dice game", to play in a different theme, ie CAESAR conquests with D6 dice. The game plays with the usual rules : there are three conquests going through with the CAESAR track (instead of the RA track). The Pharaoh's track stands for the Senate support. The Nile track stands for a battle field ; floods stands for camp settlement in the battle field. Agriculture remains. Temples stands for armies enrolment. Disasters stands for Celt attacks.
To play, one needs five colors usual dices, all necessary markers and a CAESAR figure. The zipped file includes a neutral board and a file with 4 game summaries in french (but text is minor).
