In Ankh, players take on the role of the gods of Ancient Egypt. They’ll fight for the adoration of the populace, building up their followers, dedicating monuments, recruit monsters their side, and divide the desert in order to establish their dominance. In the end, only one will remain.

Ankh: Gods of Egypt – Pantheon Expanison
The war of the gods did not begin with any formal declaration. No sides were drawn, no single event cascaded into open battle. Instead, it was the slow realization that as devotion to one god waxed, power to the others waned.
Some thought themselves above the fray, thought themselves wiser, learned, or immune to the whim of mortal man. They were wrong. The gods do not exist without followers, and devotion is their lifeblood, whether they wish it so or not. The tide of cosmic balance had shifted towards mankind, and the gods who once enjoyed their unquestioning deference now have to contend for prominence.
Thus it was that the last holdouts who sought to distance themselves from the fray took to the battlefield in their own bids for dominance. What had begun as jostling in a minor power struggle had drawn in all the mightiest deities across the Egyptian pantheon.
In the end, there could be only one.
The Pantheon expansion introduces a whole new set of five Egyptian gods, each bringing their own abilities and warriors to the fight against oblivion. The introduction of each new god into the game not only gives new options to the player who controls them, but also changes the landscape for everyone on the table. New strategies and dynamics arise as different mixes of gods are pitted against each other, and the Pantheon expansion increases these combinations exponentially!
The Pantheon expansion comes with:
5 God figures and 30 Warrior figures:
– 1 Horus God figure and 6 Horus Warrior figures
– 1 Hathor God figure and 6 Hathor Warrior figures
– 1 Set God figure and 6 Set Warrior figures
– 1 Thoth God figure and 6 Thoth Warrior figures
– 1 Bastet God figure and 6 Bastet Warrior figures
5 God dashboards
5 Joined God dashboards
30 Battle cards (6 for each God)
20 Color bases (4 for each God)
80 Ankh tokens (16 for each God)
Additionally, Pantheon also includes Exclusive bonus plastic Bastet Cat tokens and engraved Eye of Horus tokens!
Ankh: Gods of Egypt Pharaoh Expansion
In ancient times, a single individual was chosen as intermediary between the gods and mortal man. This king was anointed as prophet, priest, and ruler by the gods themselves, and charged with maintaining Ma’at, cosmic balance and order, over the land of Egypt and its people. The right of law, the right of rule, the right of war, and of judgment were granted to the Pharaoh, and in his wisdom and with the gods’ guidance, Egypt prospered.
When the war of the gods began, each deity sought the Pharaoh’s support. Who better to champion their cause than the very mortal they had endowed with such powers? Yet, such a decision would upend Ma’at and throw the cosmic order into chaos. With the very sagacity granted to him by the gods, the Pharaoh declared that one man alone, however exalted, could not decide the war by fiat alone. The Pharaoh would watch, protect the people against the war’s worst depredations, and maintain Ma’at through the transition to monotheism while honoring all gods equally.
Thus, the Pharaoh balances the needs of the gods with the political and social needs of mortalkind. The battle in heaven shall not overflow into a civil war on earth, not so long as the Pharaoh still draws breath.
The Pharaoh expansion introduces a whole new dimension to Ankh: Gods of Egypt. This expansion brings the divine struggle closer to the world of men, and one man in particular: the Pharaoh of all Egypt! The gods will do well to send their priests into the royal palace in order to influence the affairs of the kingdom, manipulating the different offices in order to gain political advantage and steer the Pharaoh towards recognizing the ultimate divinity of the one true god. Your struggle may be divine, but if you fail to enforce your dominance over the human sphere of affairs, all that awaits you is oblivion.
The Pharaoh expansion comes with:
– 1 Golden Pharaoh figure
– 3 Ra Priest figures
– 3 Isis Priest figures
– 3 Amun Priest figures
– 3 Osiris Priest figures
– 3 Anubis Priest figures
– 3 Horus Priest figures
– 3 Hathor Priest figures
– 3 Set Priest figures
– 3 Thoth Priest figures
– 3 Bastet Priest figures
1 Palace dashboard
5 Sphinx tokens
4 Sphinx cards
40 Political cards
1 Rules Booklet
Additionally, Pharaoh includes Exclusive 3D sculpted plastic Sphinx pieces and Deluxe Palace Board printed on thick cardboard!
Ankh: Gods of Egypt Guardians Expansion
While all gods possess power and responsibility beyond that of mortal ken, they themselves were never created equal. Not all bestrode the world like the mighty sun, or commanded the realm of the dead, or even represented all of feline kind in their regal majesty.
The lesser gods and demons knew their place, and divined that their survival would hinge on levying favor with the one patron that would dominate the cosmos when all was done. It was not a matter of followers or that their duties were of any lesser import. Yet the whims of fate and the cosmic tide had left them without grand monuments and legions of devoted followers. Such was the nature of a divine existence.
For the patron deities that grant them succor, these Guardians ply their talents in their patrons’ names, adding to their grandeur and protecting their devoted followers as their own. Serving the mighty was their truest path to enduring this war to end all wars.
The Guardians Set introduces a new set of Guardians ready to join the gods in their quest. Most of the Guardians contained in this set are terrible demons with vicious abilities the gods would much rather have at their side than used against them. The introduction of new Guardians into the game gives new options to select from, increasing the possibilities for different combinations and interactions for each game. The presence or absence of each Guardian can have a profound impact on the gameplay dynamics.
The Guardians Set comes with:
11 Guardian figures:
-3 Mafdet figures
-2 Am-Heh figures
-2 Pazuzu figures
-2 Ammit figures
-2 Shezmu figures
5 Guardian cards
