Aton picks up the theme of two high priests vying for control over four temples in Ancient Egypt. It plays fast and fun as a two person area control game. The game tries to bring the theme up with everything, the box that has a great colourful design and turning it, it resembles an entrance to a temple which was fun to see.
The whole of Egypt is in uproar – Akhnaton, who has just acceded to the throne, wants to ban the old deity Amon from the temples of the land. Aton is to be worshiped as the new God.
But the priests of the land are not willing to give up their temples without resistance so the 4 largest temples are fiercely disputed.
The players are adversaries and fight out this battle of the Gods between them. Both have the same starting position, but who will be able to make better use of his abilities and help his God to victory?
