What Is This?
Set in the world created by In Her Majesty’s name, Adventuring Companies conduct an undeclared war between the Great Powers, defeating adversaries to acquire the latest in scientific, engineering and mystic research for their patrons.
As we begin the game the Adventuring Companies are at home equipping themselves for their next mission.
Little do they know that the pharaoh Akhenaton has been reincarnated and is seeking the Regalia of Ra, if he is not stopped then immortality and world dominion will be his.
How is it Played?
Players compete to accumulate Fame Points by travelling to exotic destinations across the globe and completing missions, for every mission there is an adversary who must be defeated, combat involve Shooting, Fighting or Mysticism traits; they are resolved using a dice roll adjusted by skill, action cards and money spent.
During a challenge all players can opt to play action cards or spend money to either help the current player or, in the time honoured tradition of the ‘Great Game’, arm & equip their rival’s adversaries.
Six of the missions in the game involve the Regalia of Ra, Akhenaton’s agents are also searching for the Regalia and on every player’s turn all unclaimed regalia moves towards Akhenaton’s headquarters in Cairo, if a regalia item reaches Cairo then Akhenaton claims it.
When the sixth regalia item is revealed Akhenaton himself appears on the board and he moves to claim any remaining regalia.
If any player or Akhenaton collects all six regalia they automatically win the game.
Once all six regalia are off the board Akhenaton moves towards London, if he reaches it he wins.
Sometimes you’ll need to help a rival defeat their adversary just to stop Akhenaton getting too powerful or reaching London.
The game also ends when Akhenaton is defeated; in this case the player with the most Fame Points is the winner.
