Ancient Egypt is going to the dogs- or maybe to the cats? Displeased by his children, the Pharaoh favors his pets instead. He has decided to alter the lines of succession and will bequeath his entire kingdom either to the feline goddess Bast or to the canine god Anubis, but which one? In Heir to the the Pharaoh you and your opponent play as Bast and Anubis, each one vying for the Pharaoh's affection- and for his throne! Impress the Pharaoh by digging your mighty paws into the sand. Build majestic Shrines, Sun Temples and Obelisks! Use Animal Magic to unleash the power of the gods, who will help you win the favor of the Pharaoh!
Heir to the Pharaoh combines intense card play with a spacious and colorfully illustrated game board. It mingles multiple mechanisms, including tile placement, network building, bidding, set collection, area control, and hand management (with players required to exchange all used cards with their opponent at the end of each round).
Will the favor of the Dog Star shine down on you? Will the sands of Egypt become your royal litter box? Play and find out! The player who claws her way to victory will be the new top dog or fat cat and become Heir To The Pharaoh!
