In the fantasy world of Kemet: Blood and Sand, the Ancient Egypt classic gods are not the only ones to be worshiped. Darker and scarier gods are the focus of unholy cults: the great Cthulhu is worshiped on the Nile shores, whereas the name of Nyarlathotep, the Black Pharaoh, is whispered in the far desert.

You'll find a new kind of Power tiles with miniatures : the Great Old Ones. They are the tallest miniatures in the game.

(Re)discover Kemet’s epic universe with Kemet: Blood and Sand, the newest edition of the multi-award winning game, Kemet! Kemet: Blood and Sand will immerse you in an unrivaled gaming experience, even better than the original!

Kemet is back with streamlined and upgraded gameplay based on hundreds of hours of testing, solid development from our expert team and your valuable feedback.  Since it was released in 2012 Kemet has been a favourite with the board game community. While working on version 1.5 with the community, we were excited to see the incredible interest in this amazing game. It was time for Kemet: Blood and Sand! 

In Kemet: Blood and Sand, you play one of the Egyptian gods, aiming to stamp your dominance on the parched land. Build pyramids, combine godly powers  to create powerful asymmetric combinations and lead your followers in glorious battles. But, be careful - only deep strategic planning and swift tactics will lead you toward victory!

Risks and challenges

Our all team know how to develop and produce a game. However, even though we have been working on this project for quite a while now, we know that each new project comes with its very own bundle of risk and unexpected events. Whether it’s about production, delivery or anything else, unfortunately there are certain parts of the process we can’t control. The Matagot team is prepared for them, and is always willing to find the best solutions to solve every issue that can come through our way to bring you awesome games!
