Great game, simple mechanics and plenty of strategy. The bidding round is especially tense, and some tough decisions on what to buy/where to place. Has displaced El Grande as my game of the moment.

I actually have come to enjoy it more over time resulting in my current raising of my rating; something I seldom do. Love the auction mechanism. Sure there is some luck on card draw but hey, you need to deal with what you get...(no pun intended).

Competes with T&E as my favorite game. I love all the different phases, the two types of auction, and the clearing of the board between ages. Great stuff!

I still like this game after 10 years, but don't get to play it much. Definitely wants 5 players, though 4 can be ok. With 3-4 the first round is much more luck dependant as all provinces won't be in play.Also the camel rider tends to be more viable in 5 player match.

I like it. It's quite straight forward game, the mechanisms and strategies are fairly easy grasp, but mastering them is tad more difficult. Bumbeb the rating after playing it after a long break.

An excellent game with multiple paths to victory (or defeat), and plays particularly well with 5 players (less well with only 3). Extremely well balanced, and seems to produce tight games with skill and strategy being much more important than luck - which is present in the game but in a small way. Highly recommended!

The best of the best. Simply put, brilliant game. All possible balance issues are solved by excellent auction system.

Played this every week for three years. Excellent game and always happy to return to it.

Amun-Re is a very interesting resource development game with a fantastic auction system. One of its greatest offerings is that victory can be achieved along multiple roads. It's right up there with the greatness Knizia achieved in Tigris & Euphrates.

first game pretty good. will improve second game round when we knows it a bit better. actually, after a couple of games, i'm leaving the rating as is. I like the game, but it's not smacking with fun...it not bad...further plays have proved me wrong..this is another knizia gem that shines with 5..
UPDATE May 09. The more I play the worse (or better my opponents get) I get. It's still one of Knizia's final Big Game greats IMO.
UPDATE Dec 09. Well, I'm slowly getting better at this game. There are so many strategic avenues to pursue. I consider this to be one of the later Knizia classics. Rating up from 8 to 9. Might even make the coveted 10 rating in time.

The auctions are pretty tense (should I bid on the one I want or bluff so I can move to the one I want), and the sacrifice/reward/river level mechanism is really cool. But, dont forget, it's (mostly) about the pyramids. Just awesome.

Like Ra, players bid for things that have different values for each of them. On top of that, you have 3 resources to manage (farmers, pyramids, cards) that affect your game position. Looks great and plays great.

Very playable. Subtle strategies abound. The farmers and pyramids are your friends! Won my first game by one point with the end of game cash bonus (6). Played this at the Connecticut Game Club monthly meeting and bought a copy.

Great combination of bidding, strategy, and bluffing. Not to mention the customary toilet-papering of your opponent's pyramids.

Amun-Re contains many different elements but they are balanced well enough to form into a relatively convincing whole. The theme is attractive, but of secondary importance to the game mechanics. The scoring is typically (for a Knizia design) many-stranded and leads to some tense bidding in the latter stages of the game. The only element which detracts just a little from the game me is the randomness introduced by the Power Cards.

Over all excellent game, however I have found that I possess the ability to be the anti bidder. Although there is one main strategy - to accumulate the most money after round one - there are multiple ways to get there

The bidding phase is nothing short of brilliant, and the offering phase is a major nail-biting-fest. I'll never turn down a game.

A very clever auction game. Simultaneous auctions and a partial reset in the game to fix the run away leader and a tense blind auction makes Amun-Re a well crafted game. The blind auction luck is well managed because unlike other blind auctions, everyone wins something.

This is my all time favorite game. I'll never turn down an offered play. It's a good combination of player interaction, resource allocation, and tough decisions. A good player needs to know how much money to spend on something.
