Sailing Toward Osiris is a board game from Daily Magic Games for 2-5 players, aged 14+, where players aim to become the next Pharaoh by gathering resources using laborers, gaining favor from the gods, and using citizen powers to build monuments on the River Nile.
“Egypt needs a new ruler and the Pharaoh has left no descendants to take the crown. Law dictates that the governor to bury the Pharaoh will become the next Pharaoh, and in order to gain the privilege of burying the Pharaoh you must build monuments in his honor.” [source]
The Sailing Toward Osiris: Governors & Envoys expansion supports 1-5 players. Players can choose a Governor who has special privileges and select an objective for secret, end-game, bonus points. They can use their Envoy to carry out special tasks to reserve terrain or spaces for use in a later action. There are also new Boon of Ra cards which modify the Governor’s build action for a season.
The Sailing Toward Osiris: Governors & Envoys expansion is designed by the base game’s designer, W. David MacKenzie, and is expected to release on September 15th, 2018.
