In Luxor, you’re trying to earn the most points! There are a few ways you earn points:
1) Travel deep into the tomb. The golden beetle beside each space shows how many points you will get for being in that space at the end of the game
2) Collecting treasures (represented by the tiles that have jewelry, vase, or, blue statue). They have a base point value (the # in the tile), but also you can gets exponentially more points by earning one of each treasure (collecting sets). You collect treasures by having enough of your coloured adventurers on the space (the grey adventurers show how many you need).
3) Grabbing tokens. The key tokens are worth 1 point, but allow you access into the centre of the tomb. First 2 people into the centre grabs a point sarcophagus! There are also hidden tiles under treasures where you can land to earn scarabs (worth varying points).
Movement: To move around the tomb, you’re going to be playing a card from your hand of 5.
-THE KEY OF THIS GAME IS THAT YOU CAN ONLY USE THE OUTSIDE 2 CARDS. So if you’re dealt a hand with 4, 5, 3, 3, 1 , you can only play the 4 or the 1. At the end of the turn, you’ll grab a new one and place it in the centre, shifting the other cards to the outside.
-The card is usually only going to show a number from 1-5. Choose an adventurer that’s active (the ones facing up) and move them that many spaces, skipping over empty tiles (spaces where the treasure has been claimed).
-If you pass over an Anubis statue, you’re extra adventurer becomes active and you can use him next turn!
Special Tiles: The pink tiles will send you that many spaces forward if you land on it.
-The yellow tiles let you decide between grabbing a key or grabbing a “Horus card”. Horus cards get added to your hand and do more than the normal cards (eg: grab a treasure for one less adventurer, move all adventurers forward 2 spaces)
-Grabbing a treasure may reveal a tile underneath. I’ll edit this when we get to those!
Andddd that’s everything (besides Queenies of course)! Hope that you understood everything and are willing to give this great game a try and feel free to ask any questions you have!
