The mighty Nile: cradle of life and civilization -  and a powerful source of fame and fortune. 

In Egizia, players sail ships carrying workers and stone to build mighty monuments for the Pharaoh. The river offers great rewards and abilities as it flows ever Northward to the sea.

And therein lies the challenge.

Each ship must be placed downriver from your last. When you sail past a space, there's no going back.

Tune in to discover why Egizia is modern classic with an even brighter future.

Complete Show Notes continue after the break.
