Product Description

Discover the lost treasures of Egypt and make your fortune!

You are an archaeologist working the dig sites of the Egyptian desert. Search for the right pieces to complete torn parchments, broken pots and other priceless artifacts. Explore an ancient pyramid hoping to uncover a huge stash of treasure! Trade shrewdly at the local marketplace to increase the value of your collection. Sell your treasures to the museum at just the right time for maximum profit.

But beware, the desert also has its dangers! A devastating sandstorm can throw your expedition into disarray, and cunning thieves lurk around the dig site ready to steal your prize discovery!

So much fun from so small a package!
May 09, 2011

I've played this game about five times and thoroughly enjoy it. Basically what you are doing is collecting sets of cards with archaeological items on them and scorng points. There are lots of other factors in this game, though. You could draw a thief card and steal an opponents' card from them or you could draw a sandstorm card and have to get rid of half of your hand. You can trade cards in the marketplace which is the most strategic part of the game. There is also a pyramid where you can get extra cards with any map cards you get. There are lots of decisions to be made and all the information needed to play are on the cards (including the card's rarity value). Replayability is great and it is just as good a two-player game as a three or four-player game. I highly suggest this one.
