Description Edit | History

When you die, you can take it with you!

Take on the role of Egyptian nobles at the time of the pharaohs, preparing for death and burial in the Valley of the Kings. Players want to fill their tombs with food, canopic jars, statues, amulets and other treasures, and to do so they acquire cards that are laid out in the shape of a pyramid; the higher the card on the pyramid, the more expensive it is to buy — but when lower cards are purchased, the pyramid crumbles, lowering prices on the cards that fall. The pyramid resets each round with new offerings.

You score only for cards that you remove from your deck and stash in your tomb, so if you keep using valuable cards for their effects and don't entomb them before the game ends, you could lose out on big points! Whoever collects the most valuable artifacts in her tomb wins.

2 Solo variant with dummy player
Hi, here is a solo variant with a dummy player. It is edited by Tom Cleaver and also includes card effects for the Valley of the Kings:Afterlife game. The format is A5 - it should be possible to print and cut to fit in the game box. Some scaling might be necessary on Letter paper. Have fun!

6 Valley of the Kings - Set Reference card
This is a reference that lists all of the cards in each set by age. It is ideal for newer players who are not familiar with which cards are in each set and when they come out. It also includes the card cost and it's gold value. This version is in black/white. My suggestion for printing is 110 weight cardstock, print on both sides and cut to 3.5 x 5. v0.1 initial submission
