Description

Ra is an auction and set-collection game set in ancient Egypt.

Ancient Egypt is in a time of strong cultural growth. Towering monuments to men and gods alike dominate the desert landscape. Pharohs rise and fall through the years, but on constant remains: the glory of the sun god Ra.

In Ra, players bid on tiles that represent aspects of Ancient Egyptian life and civil progress: advancement of arts and sciences, creation of monuments, development of agriculture, and respect for the gods and pharaohs. However, disaster can strike at any time, causing players to lose their tiles and their influence over history.

This remastered version of the beloved classic Ra features a lavishly illustrated board, beautiful new tile art, and a sculpted statue of Ra. This exciting new edition invites you to invoke the power of Ra!

From BoardGameGeek

Ra is an auction and set-collection game with an Ancient Egyptian theme. Each turn players are able to purchase lots of tiles with their bidding tiles (suns). Once a player has used up his or her suns, the other players continue until they do likewise, which may set up a situation with a single uncontested player bidding on tiles before the end of the round occurs. Tension builds because the round may end before all players have had a chance to win their three lots for the epoch. The various tiles either give immediate points, prevent negative points for not having certain types at the end of the round (epoch), or give points after the final round. The game lasts for three "epochs" (rounds). The game offers a short learning curve, and experienced players find it both fast-moving and a quick play.

One of the Knizia auction trilogy: Medici, Modern Art, Ra.
