Hooray! Egyptian Architects Kickstarter campaign successfully funded! What great news! Thanks to everyone who supported the project, it means a lot to me!
I’ve already ordered the games, had them arrive, and shipped them back out to backers! I was able to order some extra games which are now available for sale. There is a PayPal option to buy the games over on the Egyptian Architects page (slightly better deal), and also on Amazon. The game is $12 plus shipping, or $14 for the game with the gods card expansion (only available on the Egyptian Architects page).
Sorry for the late update, but our first Kickstarter for Egyptian Architects is well underway! We funded the printing in a little over 25 hours and we’re closing in our first stretch goal! Go check it out!
Gather your idols and prepare your workers, it’s time to construct a monument to your Pharaoh!
In Egyptian Architects players compete to prove who is the greatest architect in the Nile valley by playing cards to construct holy shrines and lay the bricks of the mighty pyramids. But only one will rise triumphant and receive the blessings of the gods.
Egyptian Architects is a pick and pass style card game where players are dealt an initial hand of which they keep one card, passing their remaining cards to the player on their left. Players continue to pick cards one at a time until they have created their hand for the round.
Once card picking has completed pyramid construction begins! Players will play the cards form their hands one at a time to construct pyramids per the plans in play.
Each card scores points in a unique way, and strategy must be used to determine what card will be best to play on each turn. Players will have three rounds to build pyramids and collect as many points as possible before the game ends.
The player who scores the most points is the winner!
Hello everyone! We’ve updated the website to a new design. The hope is that this new format will let the website be more easily updated in the future. I’ve put in various scripts so that the website will auto-format for me, so while it was additional work up front to get the web page to look right, in the future it will be much easier to updated and add content to the website!
