That’s right Mayfair Games is releasing Catan: Ancient Egypt this November. This isn’t just a re-skinning of regular Catan either, Klaus Teuber himself has reworked the original game to give it a distinctive Egyptian flavor in the Ancient Egypt collector’s edition. You build settlements still but your cities are now Temple Cities and there are extra contents for Egyptian themed scenarios including papyrus boats, pyramid blocks, god cards and more.
Catan: Ancient Egypt retails for $75 and appears to be a very nice set, especially if you are interested in ancient Egypt. The fact that this is a collectors set and comes with somewhere around ninety extra game pieces and cards for the special Egypt themed variants and scenarios also help to make this very tempting indeed.
