The air wavers 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. The builder whose work most pleases him shall be given not only riches, but fame and honor beyond all imagining. So gather your resources, organize your crews, and adorn the banks of the Nile with marble and gold.

Egizia: Shifting Sands is a streamlined, modern update of Egizia that both longtime fans and brand new players can easily pick up and enjoy. Players travel down the Nile, placing boats as they go, to collect resources that will help them construct some of Egypt’s most famous monuments. Shifting Sands comes with all new monuments to build, new cards to collect, and a constantly shifting river. If you aren’t familiar with Egizia, you can check out the BGG page. You can also visit the Egizia: Shifting Sands BGG page to view the updated game and art assets!  

Egizia: Shifting Sands is a card drafting, worker placement game for 2-4 players that plays in 90 minutes. For more information, we encourage you to view the videos directly below, or simply read our draft rulebook here.

Every backer is important to us, regardless of location, but the reality is that shipping and sales taxes are very expensive and is a cost we all need to share. To offset this, while remaining fiscally responsible, we have included a discount on ALL shipping and taxes, but there is no free shipping. Shipping & Taxes charges will be added after Kickstarter ends, every backer will be responsible for paying these fees in the pledge manager after the campaign ends. Please see shipping & taxes chart above.

For the US, Canada, UK and the EU we have included applicable taxes, your rewards will be sent Duty Free from within your region – there will not be any additional customs charge. Outside of the US, Canada, UK and the EU, we cannot guarantee customs friendly shipping in these areas. There may be additional duties and/or fees charged by your country's governmental agencies and/or shipping partners. Those fees are solely your responsibility, and we can neither cancel a pledge nor will we pay those fees. In case a package is returned or destroyed due to non-payment of such fees, your pledge will be considered fulfilled.
