Ra is in essense an auction game, set in ancient Egypt. The version by Rio Grande is very pleasant on the eye, with an elegant board, neat tiles and lovely wooden sun counters, all supported with a clear set of rules.

Like the wonderful Medici, there are three rounds of auctions, with each player allowed to spend there 3 suns to buy advances for their civilisation. The strategy comes from when to declare an auction, planning what advances to pursue and knowing when to use up your suns.

There is a clever element whereby the number of lots available is determined by the amount of Ra tokens drawn. This adds a nice element of tactics (and luck). Learning the values of tiles is easy and the game is great fun. Not up there with my fav auction game, Medici, but recommended nevertheless.
