Reiner Knizia’s classic game Ra has now been released. New art and components described by Steve Kimball, head of Windrider Games, as deserving of a “premium touch” has set high expectations for the look and feel of this board game. He continues by adding “Just run your fingers over the board when you get it—especially the hieroglyphs” In addition to the premium components, Reiner has updated the rules organization to bring this reprint to life. Windrider Games is Asmodee‘s newest studio, and Ra will be their first title.
In Ra, players compete over three ages (each age called an epoch) to create the most successful society. Through auction style bidding and set collection, each player builds a balanced culture to avoid destructive disasters, and keep their civilization progressing through each age.
Whether you’re a fan of Ra, Reiner Knizia, or just the Ancient Egyptian theme, this is something you’ll want to check out later this year.
