The Pyramid's Deadline
Age: 8+ / Time: 20 min. / Players: 2 - 6 / Price: 2,200 Yen
We are in ancient Egypt and the pharaoh has sent for the most gifted architects in his realms.
As one of the chosen architects you have to try to build the most remarkable gravesite for your pharaoh, but if your goal is too lofty or you are too slow and the pharaoh dies before you finalize the monument you will be executed.
Can you surpass the others, complete it in time and become the most glorious architect in Egypt?
In this game every player has to build a pyramid through choosing the right stones.
It is a mixture of tactical game and puzzle.
Every player plays the role of an architect in ancient Egypt and has to try to surpass the others by building a pyramid out of five kinds of stones.
If you set your goals too high and are thus not able to finish the monument before the pharaoh dies, you have to suffer bruising defeat.
Since every player can only take one stone of a limited amount of stones per round, you have to be careful though. It is not always possible to get the stone you would like to get!
The players' decisions have influence on the lifespan of the pharaoh. This is why it is possible to calculate your remaining time. But be careful: Sometimes there is this one player who suddenly decides to actively shorten the pharaoh's lifespan, when you feel safe.
"I want to build a huge pyramid!", "...but I need to be careful not to be too slow!", "The pharaoh is still alive and kicking, ...maybe I could make the pyramid a little bit higher still!" - These are thoughts you will definitely have while playing this game. It connects tactical thinking and puzzle fun!
