In the deck-building game Valley of the Kings, players portray Egyptian nobles at the time of the pharaohs preparing for their death and burial in the Valley of the Kings, competing against their rivals to accumulate the best artifacts for their tomb.
In the Egyptian religion, when you die you can take it with you! Egyptians therefore stocked their tombs with food, shabti (statuettes of servants who will work for them in the afterlife), canopic jars (to preserve their organs), statues of the gods, household items, and amulets. You compete with the other players to accumulate the best artifacts for your tomb. At the end of the game, you score the artifacts stored there - the player with the most victory points wins!
