Aggression
First copy arrived damaged. It was replaced. The game plays fast and brutal. It comes with miniatures for each player, that came a bit bent. Perhaps in time they'll straighten out, but gameplay isn't affected, as they still stand. The fact that the miniatures are different sculpts is a nice bonus. T...

Throw down like an Egyptian in Kemet - Quarter to Three
There’s more jockeying for position on this tech tree than there is on the board, where moving units into position is almost a formality. The army management is part of how Kemet encourages aggressive play. The layout of the board, the way units move, the importance of controlling territory, and the relative ease of coming back from a lost battle all keep the action fluid, with nuances like raiding, feints, and assaults

What games ARE too similar for you to own both?
Gaia Project replaces Terra Mystica for me, while both are a different beast when it comes to area locking; Gaia gave me more to think with the tech track. Kemet 2.0 replaced Bloodrage for me, it was much easier for people to get into Kemet with most of the information open than Bloodrage, and battles in Kemet is way more intense.
Review: Kemet
But with its unconventional movement, mathematical combat resolution, abstract production and arbitrary action selection, it plays like no other you know. Indeed it’s more of a metamorphosed war game whose thematic anchors are surprisingly aweigh. With that perspective Kemet is a grandly unique design worthy of the gods themselves! Rating 9

Kemet - Review
It takes the core of ‘armies on maps’ games, ramps up the pace and gives you hard but understandable choices every turn. It wants you to be aggressive and fast, and every design decision is tuned towards making that happen, to encouraging you to engage and fight. This is not a game for those who don’t want those things, but I personally love it for that

What Did You Play This Week? - (August 23, 2021)
Played a 2 player game. **Kemet Blood and Sand**: Found out this week that my groups first play of this game we got some rules wrong, which meant when I went to play it at 2 players we fudged some of the rules but I had corrected some of our previous mistakes. Nonetheless we had a great time and are looking forward to a 5 player match to really get everything going on the board!.

WOW!
This game was on my wishlist for almost a year, now that I finally bought it I have to say that I was surprised. Its awesome! It's something between a worker placement and a war game... yet it's nothing like a worker placement game nor a war game. You control one of five different armies, each repre...

What's a game you love that got a new edition whose changes you dislike?
**Kemet: Blood and Sand** made a lot of good improvements in balance, rules to avoid edge cases and timing issues, and some editorial direction on tiles for player count and other similar areas. However the board art is worse, it lands in a strange almost real almost stylized which isn't great, the style on the card symbology feels mixed, the quality of the miniatures feels a bit worse, and the English rule book is terrible and full of errata, I wound up having to print my own of the fixed one once the community helped them fix it post campaign. I still kept Blood and Sand as the positives are far more important thab the negatives, but it does feel like a slight miss.

Kemet Review - with Tom Vasel
I love this game and I'm surprised it hasn't got more buzz, but this game is just amazing for end and it works well with three four or five players there's a lot going on. I mean we're not talking about super heavies, but strategy, but there is tiles to pick from. There is work replacement and then there's just straight up in your face: attacking no one's at a disadvantage of their position

I decided to purchase this game after playing a game of Risk in which my 14 y/o daughter decided to join us. She really loved the kick-butt aspect of the game but I never really liked the player elimination component. After some research, I found Kemet which was daughter-approved due to the Egyptian...
