Eggs and Empires is a the fast-playing card game in which players use matching decks of empire cards that contain adventurers numbered 1 - 10. Starting with a hand of three empire cards, each turn all players select one card from their hand, then play them simultaneously in an attempt to collect egg cards.
Typically, the player who played the highest empire card chooses an egg first, then the player with the second highest empire card, and so on until all revealed cards are collected, if possible.
However, each empire card has a unique power that can affect the order in which eggs are selected. The powers interact in strategic and awesome ways so that every hand is exciting and fun.
Outwit your opponents to collect as many good eggs as possible -- that is, ones worth victory points (VPs) -- while avoiding those nasty exploding eggs! Whoever collects the most VPs over three rounds wins.
# of Players: 2 - 6
Mfg Suggested Ages: 8+

"Eggs and Empires takes less than 5 minutes to learn, then mixes a blend of strategy, guesswork, and memory, while using a polarizing scoring system that makes sure no one is ever out of the game. It provides a casual gaming experience that non-gamers and get into, but with enough bite for true gamers to enjoy."
