Egypt details

Egypt overview

“Card game simulating 3000 years of rule by the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt.” There are seven kinds of cards in the deck. Each turn the players attempt to play the highest scoring meld to establish control of Egypt. A meld is two or more cards of the same type. The player who controls Egypt may then play additional melds from his hand to gain tribute points.

“The game ends after 10 turns. Each turn represents 300 years. If the deck runs out before the 10th turn, shuffle the cards and keep playing. Victory: The player with the most accumulated tribute points at the end of the game is the winner.”
