Imhotep is played over six rounds and in the game, players move stones by boat to create five separate monuments. A player can choose to carry out one of four actions on their turn – procure new stones from the quarry, load a stone onto a boat, sail a boat to a monument or play an action card. Each monument scores differently and the player with the most points at the end of the game is the winner.
