The air waivers in the afternoon heat as the sun beats down on the smooth waters of the Nile. The Pharaoh has sent down an edict to you, his best builders. He requires monuments, not just one, but five glorious monuments in his name so that he will be remembered throughout all of time. 

Stronghold Games have announced their modernized version of Egizia; the classic worker placement game where players at as builders in Ancient Egypt trying to impress the Pharoah. Players place boats, collect resources, and build some of Egypt's best-loved monuments in order to become the greatest builder in Egypt!


Now, Stronghold Games seek to bring the glory of the Kingdom of the Nile back to the tabletop in Egizia: Shifting Sands. With new, streamlined rules, modernized art, and two new monuments - the Colonnade and statues - Egizia: Shifting Sands brings the architecture of an ancient world into your board gaming experience!


Egizia was a popular game back in 2009 when it was first released, and after a decade it's proven just as popular, attracting plenty of attention and quickly meeting its funding target on Kickstarter. You can cross the Nile and check out the campaign in more detail here.
