Start your time travel and discover the mysteries of ancient Egypt in this 2-player game which dates to 3100 BC! Your goal is to move all your pieces away from the board before your opponent does so. When the game starts, you will be given a board consists of 30 squares, which are evenly divided into 3 rows. Each player will be assigned a set of blue or red pieces, and all the pieces will be placed alternatively on the topmost row of the board. The pieces should move from left to right on the topmost row, then travel from right to left on the middle row, then from left to right on the bottom row. You and your opponent will take turns to throw a set of 4 sticks. During your turn, click the button on the screen to throw the sticks, and the number of face-up sticks will be the number of steps you can take: 1-4 face-up sticks = 1-4 steps; no face-up stick = 5 steps. You can then click and drag one of your pieces to an empty square, or move to a square currently occupied by an opponent piece and swap the position with it. Note that you must finish your turn within the given time limit, as indicated by the timer at the top of the screen, or you will lose. When 2 of your pieces are adjacent to each other, those pieces will be safe and their positions cannot be swapped. When 3 of your pieces are adjacent, the opponent pieces will not be allowed to pass through them. The rightmost 5 squares on the bottom row are special tiles. If your piece lands on the green "water" tile, it has to move back to the topmost row and start from the beginning again. If your piece lands on the other special tiles, it will be safe and its position cannot be swapped with opponent pieces. When your piece is leaving the board, an exact throw is required. Are you lucky enough to receive the blessings from the Egyptian gods?
