skald A massive battle which starts immediately with an attack by hundreds of units. The instructions are worth reading just for themselves, I really liked them. If enough of your troops survive the intial attack you might be able to go on the offensive against Napoleon and push him out of Egypt. I did not play this one out.

Battle of the Pyramids

Playability: 2.5. Starts with mass confusion, lots of troops of all kinds mixed together with everybody shooting at everybody and catapults destroying themselves and their allies. My pyramids got destroyed right away, but not my temples. I fell back my favorite units, cav arch, cav, villies, priests, cats, to a neutral corner. Regrouped and began an endless sequence of cav arch raid, retreat and heal, cav arch raid, retreat and heal.

Balance: 3. You could lose this if you're not careful and manage your troops.

Creativity: 3. Nice concept and cool instructions.

Map: 2.5. Pretty basic but nicely organized enemy troop configurations.

Story: 4. Really creative and well written humorous and historical instructions and history.
