CMON has announced that their new board game, Ankh: Gods Of Egypt from Eric Lang, is going to be coming to Kickstarter on 14th April. If you're interested in the next board game from Lang which follows in the footsteps of Blood Rage and Rising Sun then you won't have long to wait.

Ankh Announcement - CMON

This massive new game will have you playing as the titular Gods Of Egypt as you seek to stake your claim on the kingdom and bring more followers under your sway. As this is a CMON game it will also feature some rather stunning miniatures which will represent these Gods on the tabletop.

For example, here we have the mighty Amun who was later fused with the god Ra to become Amun-Ra.

Amun - CMON

Here is that very God for you to consider adding into the mix. All of the sculpts look absolutely fascinating and are packed with detail. They are going to be a painters dream if you want to either tinker with making them realistic or just turn them into statues.

Ra - CMON

It seems like CMON and Lang have dived down into the depths of Egyptian mythology in order to bring this game to life. One hopes that they have done a little bit more research than they did with Rising Sun and one of their somewhat quirky blunders when naming one of the monsters!

Osiris - CMON

As well as showing off all these different miniatures which represent the various Gods, the team at CMON also sat down with Eric Lang and talked through an overview of the main mechanics in the game too. It seems like this is going to be a really nice struggle for power and control and each God picked (or not picked) is going to change the game experience.

I am a big fan of Lang's games as I think they tend to focus in on really fascinating dynamics between players and also build on tried and tested mechanics with a twist. Blood Rage was really good at this, making you throw yourself into combat and focusing everything around that epic action and the clashes between Gods. It seems like Ankh also hopes to do something similar and breath new life into the genre.

Isis - CMON

I will be keeping an eye on the game when it comes to Kickstarter and hopefully, we'll have a bit more of a deep dive into the rules to devour before too long. Egyptian mythology is something which doesn't often get tackled on such a grand scale unless you're looking at the likes of Kemet but it is certainly an evocative cavern of lore to explore.

In saying that, it will be interesting to see if it can stand against the might of something like Kemet and sway people towards it!

Are you going to be keeping an eye on Kickstarter for this one?
