Here is a description of the new Lego Board Game, Ramses Pyramid with an explanation on how to play, how many players and age suitability.
How to Play Ramses Pyramid
The setting of this game is Egypt and the Mummy King Ramses is gathering forces. He and his army of mummies are preparing to conquer all of Egypt. You must try and stop them either on your own or with other players and claim victory over Ramses Pyramid. But before the game can begin you have to build it which is just as much fun as playing the game!
Roll the unique buildable Lego dice and let the game commence! The aim is to unlock the crystal coded layers to climb to the top of the pyramid; players collect crystals as they move around the board. You start to climb the pyramid using the coloured crystals to gain access to each level.
If you find you haven’t the right colour to gain entry look under the domes then replace them in another position. This is where the memory element comes into the game and your opponents try to remember where the coloured crystal is housed.
You are also able to block the other player’s progress by placing mummies in their path or moving the crystals. Full Lego instructions explain how once you have reached the top glory is nearly yours. It’s your chance now to defeat the enemy Mummy King and take his crown and steal all his treasure.
Ramses Pyramid is looking to be the most popular Lego board game for families and friends; offering hours of entertainment and a game that never gets boring because it’s never the same.
