One thought to “Episode 204-Ankh:Gods of Egypt”

  1. Its funny how the Merge in Ankh is so polarizing. The entire idea is that you MUST plan accordingly throughout the game…its a race that must be planned for on top of the red/blue track. And like Mr. Lang said in his interview…even if things don’t go well with the Merge…its a short game and you it happens very late in the game. The variability created by this rule is yet another great positive. Sorry you all didn’t care for it…its a great game that breaks all the other routines that other area control games have. Pharaoh’s definitely adds length and complexity. You have the option to play without it…shouldn’t impact the game rating. Just my 2cents.
