SAILING TOWARD OSIRIS (Daily Magic Games, 2 to 5 players, ages 12 and up, 60 minutes; $50)
The Pharaoh has died. Now, his funeral barge will slowly sail down the Nile towards his tomb where he will face the judgement of Osiris. But his death creates a political vacuum that must be filled and the question remains as to who will fill it! In this game designed by David MacKenzie, players are all “Governors” (and would be successors) but only one can become the new Pharaoh – the one to construct the most and most impressive monuments to the deceased Pharaoh’s glory while all are Sailing Toward Osiris.
