Amun-Re Becomes a Card Game

Out this month is the card game version of the game Amun-Re from Super Meeple.

This Egyptian themed three-round card game has three auctions each round, other actions and then scoring. Players take turns bidding on Provinces by placing money cards next to province cards. Outbid players take back their cards and after three rounds of auctions, players make an offering of gold. The Nile will flood according to the sum of the offering, which will in turn determine how much money players will get from the fields on their provinces.

Players can spend money to build pyramids on their provinces, and score points for pyramids, amount of fields and for having ankhs (which can also be on the province cards.)

Second and third rounds play similarly, except the new provinces bury the old ones, except for the pyramids. Scoring happens at the end of each round and the player with the most points win.
