Under the Pyramid 6 "New" Gates

Recommended Posts

Received 6 gates however:

 

only 3 are "new" on the Pyramids board.

 

The other 3 are "old" ones like Himilayas, Heart of Africa and Antarctica.

 

Is this normal for everyone or did I get a defective printing?  

 

Thanks for your response and time =)

I don't have this expansion yet, but it's similar to the gates received from the MoM expansion - three gates on the new board, and three for expedition spaces from the original board.

Sounds like this expansion completes the set of gates on expedition spaced from the original board, so I'd say it's not a mis-print.

One small venture from the X-wing forum;

The Canopic Jar in the expansion is billed as "holding a Pharaoh's brain" (https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2015/10/23/the-dark-pharaoh/); when I seem to remember one of the more humorous aspects of the mummification process being the complete removal and disposal of the brain. From what I understand, the brain got no Canopic Jar, because in the Egyptian's minds the heart was the thinking organ.

 

Thus the heart was preserved and the brain, (after being carefully extracted through the nose) was unceremoniously discarded. One can understand the mistake; after all, the heart with it's visible pumping action and importance to the continuation of the body (If you stab it and the person dies, it's important. Ancient Egyptian logic! :lol: ) seems the obvious place for the soul and mind to be located. Unfortunate, but still pretty funny!

 

Maybe this particular cult understood brain importance and thus decided to keep them in jars? It's just a little odd when unexplained.
