Eggs and Empires is a fast-playing card game from Matt Riddle and Ben Pinchback, the designers of the hit game Fleet! Outwit your opponents to collect as many Dragon Eggs as possible! Players use matching decks of Empire Cards that contain Adventurers numbered 1-10. On each turn, all players will select one card from their hand and play it simultaneously in an attempt to collect Good Eggs that are worth VP while avoiding the nasty Exploding Eggs that lose VP!
Typically, the player who played the highest Adventurer chooses an Egg first, then the player with the second highest Adventurer picks an Egg, and so on until all revealed Eggs are collected. Ah, but it's not that simple! Each Adventurer has a unique power that can affect the order in which Eggs are selected. The powers interact in strategic and awesome ways so that every hand is exciting and different. Just make sure to stay away from those wicked exploding eggs!
