Nice and Sweet

By John Burt (quill65 on Board Game Geek) edited by Tom Cleaver

“This set was designed to give good buy and entomb abilities as well as allow for fun moves with chained actions. We don’t like conflict so we left out the attack cards.”

4 set (brown): Hopi Canopic Jar / Bracelet, Brooch, Necklace


5 set (yellow-orange): Wadj Amulet, Tyet Amulet, Djed Pillar Amulet / Offering Chapel, Antechamber

Nasty Nasty

By Tom Cleaver

“This set was designed for those of the ‘take that!’ school of game play. It has lots of player interaction and lots of nasty combos.”

3 set (red): Outer Sarcophagus, Inner Sarcophagus / Linen Bandages

4 set (brown): Duamutef Canopic Jar, Qebehsenuef Canopic Jar / Brooch, Necklace

Uniques (purple): Censer, Chariot, Boat / Senet Game, Mirror Case, Ibex Statue

High Intensity

By Stuart Dunn (Dismas on Board Game Geek) edited by Tom Cleaver.

This game combines cards from all three versions (original, Afterlife, and Last Rites). It has an increased deck size, so it takes longer to play (perhaps 75 minutes).

Starter Deck: 2 Shabtis, 2 Menials, 1 Urn,1 Box of Food, 1 Offering Table, 1 Embalmer, 1 Kite, and 1 Medjay

3 sets (red): Sarcophagi and Mummification (6 cards)

4 sets (brown): Canopic Jars and Jewelry (8 cards)

5 sets (yellow-orange): Amulets, Chambers, and Builders (15 cards)

6 sets (green): Books, Weapons, and Priests (18 cards)

7 sets (blue): Statues, Tomb Art, and Builders (21 cards)

8 set (light brown): Artisans (8 cards)

Uniques (purple): Everything from all three games (16 cards)
Use one set card from each of the color sets, so that there are no duplicate cards in the game. Treat each set separately – don’t combine them into supersets.
