Of this piecepack game, Clark D. Rodeffer says, "Excellent game in the vein of Amun Re. Highly recommended!" So, I guess I should try it out!

When Bast and Anubis throw down, it starts raining cats and dogs, but in this 2p game, the cats and dogs are more interested in reigning.

I wonder if there is a significantly higher ratio of 2-player games in the Egyptian theme (thinking of Aton, for example)….

Bid for lots of thematic tiles in this otherwise quite abstract, but rather good game. The game is played over three epochs, with only certain legacies persisting from epoch to epoch.

Players bid for control of territories, and buy agricultural and structural improvements for those territories, vying to satisfy some abstract bonus conditions, but generally end up superior. Part of the fun comes from making sacrifices to Amun-Re in order to bring about floods, and thus greater agricultural yield. ...but of course the total sacrifice of all players determines this. The game is played over a couple of epochs, leaving nothing but pyramids for the later generations to abuse.

My recent addiction - a fantastic small game combining deckbuilding and set collection that manages to capture the Egyptian theme: you're basically an ancient Egyptian noble trying to put the most valuable objects (and sets of them) into your tomb. Beautiful cards with flavour text, great for education purposes too.

I still can't quite suss out how one translates Gulo Gulo to an Egyptian theme, but then I haven't been able to force myself to investigate, either.

In a rather unusual bidding system, players bid for the opportunities to buy gifts for Nefertiti. If several players offer the same gifts, they are less impressive. Markets open and close as the game progresses, keeping the flow of the game dynamic.

This is a bit of a reach, but the Senpet faction is based on the ancient Egyptians (down to the Pharoah as the main honcho) and the whole game is set in the world of the Arabian Nights.

The illustrated card is NOT a Senpet, but does evoke the mysteries of the desert quite nicely.

delete if you wanted board games only vs. "Egyptian Themed"
