The goal of the game is to build a prosperous, victorious Egyptian Empire.

On a map of Northeast Africa, you will annex the various “Sepats” (chiefdoms) that you encounter.

As you build enduring monuments like the Pyramids and the Valley of the Kings, hostile foreign powers like Kush, Persia, and the Hittites will aim to push you back to your Nile Valley heartland and threaten your vast capital city at Men-Nefer (better known as Memphis).

All the while, you must civilize the country by building temples to the Gods of Egypt like Isis, Osiris, and Amun-Ra – or suffer their wrath.

In the end, incest and debauchery threaten the Ptolemaic Greek dynasty that produced Cleopatra and you must defeat the brutal and efficient Romans.

Your place in history will depend on your empire-building skills, as well as on a little bit of luck!

Game Map

The map depicts the lower Nile Valley of

northeast Africa (“Egypt”). Men-Nefer is its hub, your

“capital city”. Five “Paths” emanate from it like spokes, each named for a region whose people threatened Egypt (Tjehenu, Retjenu, Libu, Ta Seti, and Ta Netjer). The letters “tj” and “dj” are pronounced “ch” and “j”.
