Well-written and fun game, December 3, 2013
by streever (America)
It is hard to review these short games; they tend to take 10-15 minutes to play through, and are usually worth trying.

This game in particular is definitely worth playing. It is a fun and well-written game which focuses on a standard egyptian pyramid trope. Unlike most of Veeder's work this game doesn't have any really subversive elements--it is a straight-forward and simple game which works well.

I don't think it stands up to the narrative quality of some of Veeder's other works, but is still a fun and engaging game.

I don't know if "subversive" is the right word, but I found the way the descriptions changed as the game progressed to be subtle and innovative.

I agree with that, Doug. I thought this was more clearly a set-up though than his other games; which wasn't a problem (it was a fun game), but I thought it was a lighter, breezier game than his typical.
