Beware the Mummy!
Mummies can be moved off the Tomb Tile when an Action Tile is placed in play in lieu of taking the action allowed by the icon on the tile. Mummies can be moved to any unoccupied space on the active game board, except base camps.
Players can move any color mummy, not just their own color.
TIP: Use another player’s color mummy to block movements and your color mummy to steal points.
When moving an archeologist, players cannot move through sections that are occupied by a mummy. This applies to the entire connected section of the same color, and not just the single temple space on which the mummy sits. Mummy influence does not extend past mountains, rivers, or airports. In the image below, an archeologist could NOT move through section A, but could move through section B, even though the two sections are connected via the mountain tile.
TIP: Placing a mummy in the path of an opponent’s archeologist can force them to take multiple turns worth of movements to collect a single artifact or spend an action tile or airport tile prematurely to get around a mummy.
At the end of the game, any section occupied by a mummy claims the points for that section for the archeologist of the same color as the mummy. In the image below, the entire connected green section that would equate 6 points would be taken away from the green archeologist and given to the blue archeologist because the blue mummy is inside that section. Note: you get the points for the entire section, not just the single temple space. Mummy influence for stealing points is limited by rivers and mountains.
