AEG proud to bring you Valley of the Kings Premium Edition. This version of Valley of the Kings consolidates the three previously released games in the line, upgrades the components, and adds new content.

Valley of the Kings is designed by Tom Cleaver. The first game in the series was released in 2014, Afterlife was released in 2015 and Last Rites was released in 2016.

In this game, 1-6 players work to assemble the most valuable set of grave goods in their tombs before they pass into the afterlife. The game features a unique “crumbling pyramid” mechanic to determine what cards are available on each player’s turn.

The box includes randomizers to create themed assortments of cards from all three original games, plus 6 new Unique cards added to the Premium Edition.

Premium Edition also features 10 Pharaoh Cards which provide asymmetric starting powers for the players as an optional variant.

Game Expansions


Take on the role of Egyptian nobles at the time of the pharaohs, preparing for their death and burial in the Valley of the Kings. Using an innovative deck-building mechanic with a crumbling pyramid, players fill their tombs with jewelry, chambers, weapons, tomb art and other treasures. The player who collects the most valuable artifacts in their tomb wins the game!

Last Rites

In this new version of Valley of the Kings, you must hire artisans, builders, and priests to prepare your tomb for the afterlife. The game still uses the innovative crumbling pyramid, as well as the same game mechanics as Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Kings: Afterlife. The goal is still to get the most valuable items into your tomb before the clock of your life runs out.
