Book of the Dead Card Game

An educational, fast and fun card game to help educate students about the Egyptian Book of the Dead.
All cards are based on the real gods, monsters, spells and events found in the Book of the Dead scriptures. All images on the cards are contemporary images, and most from the Book of the Dead scriptures.
The aim of the game is to collect 5 chapter cards - key events in the deceased’s journey through the netherworld - before the other players. The various gods, monsters and spells can help and hinder this aim.
All cards and instructions are included, including a document containing smaller cards, to save on printing.
All you need to do is print out the cards and instructions, mark the cards that are lightning cards (see instructions) and then hand the cards out to pupils (ideally 2-5 in a group) to play!
If needed, you are welcome to edit the cards or instructions to make it more suitable to your pupils etc.
