25th Century Games will release a new edition of Tutankhamun, one of Reiner Knizia's classic board games, into retail in July.

Tutankhamun was originally released in 1993 and was recommended by Spiel des Jahres. In this game, players take on the roles of priests collecting Artifacts to fill Tutankhamun's tomb for his burial. The goal of the game is to cleanse their spirit by collecting the most parts of Aritfact sets, thereby becoming the most powerful priest in Egypt.

The updated edition of this game has similar gameplay with a few improvements. This version adds Egyptian god powers as well as a modified scoring system with new Scarab Rings and a new two-player scoring change. The game box comes with a rulebook, a Pharaoh's Sarcophagus, Tut's Tomb Score Track, 6 scoring markers, 6 Boat markers, 70 Artifact tiles, 10 God Idol tiles, 2 Guardian Statues, and 6 reference cards. It is for two to six players, ages 8 and up, and plays in 30 minutes. This game retails for $30.00.

25th Century Games is among the game companies headed to Gen Con (see "Publishers Announce Physical Presence at Gen Con Indy 2021").
