A luck-based game
May 15, 2010

I purchased this game hoping for a real strategy-based game but discovered it mainly is a game based on luck. The Egyptians in those days apparently didn't have good ideas for games because this one didn't do it for me. The only reason I give it a 2 instead of a 1 is because there is a little thrill in rolling the right number to get your pieces into the afterlife. Why anyone would buy a more elaborate version of this game is beyond me. Except maybe to impress people that they've got an original game from ancient Egypt.
