Updating a board game can be tricky work.

Have never played Egizia. Is it anything like Imhotep (if you've ever played that)? They sound similar, although Egizia sounds more "directly vicious", I guess, which is entertaining for those of us who like to trade blows within our building plans, as you mention.

We picked up a copy of Imhotep around the time of its release from an FLGS, played it a couple times, and then put it on the shelf. I looked at it the other day on BGG and there are like a half-dozen expansions for it. I had no idea it was that popular.

I think they were going for Egizia meaning "Of Egypt." Or maybe you are right and it was Egizia: (in small print NOT A GAME BY) Reiner Knizia.
