Egizia: Shifting Sands, being published by Stronghold Games, is now live on Kickstarter. The game promises to give us not only a new, updated edition of the game, but also includes the classic game as one of its Kickstarter exclusives.

The classic Egizia was set in ancient Egypt, as is the new game. In both games, players are attempting to fulfill requests from the pharaoh in order to earn victory points. The new edition of the game, Egizia: Shifting Sands, introduces two new monuments to the game, the Colonnade and statues.
