"[Ra] is very stunning and impressive! Keep up the good work!" - Reiner Knizia
Build an empire that will live forever. Collect tiles representing various aspects of Egyptian life and civilization while your rivals try to do the same. Wisely use the few tokens that Ra, the sun god, has given you to earn your place of honor in the Valley of the Kings.
Combining deep strategy with an intuitive and beautiful visual presentation, Ra captures the mysterious lure of Ancient Egypt and will bring you back for more time and time again. Choose your favorite of 8 different Egyptian gods as your avatar, and then discover the true power of the gods as you compete against them in solo play.
With no setup time required, no pieces to lose, and no arguments about the rules, the future of board games is here and Ra gives you exactly what you want -- to play!
How to play:
Tap the draw button to reveal a single tile. The player with the highest sun (token from Ra) begins. A player without tokens takes no action on their turn. When an epoch ends, players receive or lose fame points depending on the tiles they hold. The player with the most fame after three epochs is the winner.

Ratings and Reviews
One of my favorite games
Very easy to learn and addictive. The AI are challenging enough. Lately it seems like the Ra cards come up several times in a row, but perhaps the just the luck of it. Highly recommend this game.
Solid port of a classic board game
The AI is solid, and the game is challenging to play, well worth picking up if you enjoy board games
Update game crashes after selecting local to play game
Can’t play any more I’m using a one year old IPad Pro with A10X cpu
Virtually unplayable on iPhone
App designers missed the boat with this game-there is no way to track sun progression from game screen and having to click on each player’s icon to see what their monument/pharaoh/civ/flood status necessitates tracking by hand outside phone. Next update should include a notation of how many suns left till end of round and small icons indicating how many subs, pharaohs, monuments, and Nile/flood each player has.
