Fantasy Flight Games will release the sixth expansion set to its cooperative dice game Elder Sign, Omens of the Pharaoh Expansion, in Q1 2018.

Like earlier expansions, Omens of the Pharaoh moves the action of the game out of the museum and into the field.  This time, it’s a trip to time-haunted Egypt where an archaeological expedition has inadvertently weakened the bonds holding the Dark Pharaoh Nephren-Ka at bay.  Now the players are in a race to restore the seals before the Ancient One can break free.

Omens of the Pharaoh is an expansion set, so the base game is required to play.  MSRP is $24.95.

It’s been about a year since the last Elder Sign expansion, Omens of the Deep (see “‘Elder Sign’ Goes to Sea in ‘Omens of the Deep’”).
