Incan Gold is a quick, fun game of bluff and daring in which explorers push their luck while exploring an old Incan temple in search of gold and treasure. In each round, you decide whether to delve deeper into the temple, adding to your riches, or escape with the share you’ve acquired so far.
Every time an explorer braves new territory, more gems and dangers appear. Giant spiders, mummies and fire can cause you to lose everything. Is it worth the risk? You decide. But if you leave, those who remain in the temple may acquire a bigger share of each stash of jewels yet to be found.
After five rounds of exploration, whoever has the most treasure is the ultimate explorer and the winner!

Along with For Sale, High Society, and Roll Through the Ages, I would regard Incan Gold as one of the essential must-haves in the Gryphon Games Bookshelf series of games. As a "go-to" game, for a quick and fun filler, Incan Gold hits the spot, and has a huge amount of a appeal.
Here are some of the things that help make it a hit:
- Plays quickly
- Handles groups of up to 8 easily
- Press-your-luck gives a huge fun factor
- Appeals to people of all ages, both young children and older gamers can join in
- Great looking components
- Easy rules that are quick to teach. Few other games can provide all these elements in one package.
What makes Incan Gold work so well, is that it has a very accessible theme, and a very high fun factor as a result of the press-your-luck element, combined with simultaneous selection. This cuts out down time, and keeps the game fun for everyone. It's true that you can't expect repeated play with the same group, especially with serious gamers, and the handing out gems during the game can be a little fiddly. But the amount of fun and table time this game has seen with a variety of groups is hard to beat. It appeals to people with all ages, and even with 8 players there's not really any down time. The Gryphon Games edition also has improved some of the components (e.g. the tents) from the earlier Sunriver edition.
If you're looking for something to play when grandma comes over, or Uncle Dave and his mischievous 7 year old son, or even when the colleagues from work pop in for some wine and cheese, then you can't go wrong with Incan Gold! Fun, fun, fun!
I love this game... it always brings laughter and enjoyment to everyone... even people who don't care for games. If you're looking for a simple and FUN game... look no more!!!
This is simply a simple and great game for just about everyone. I was not impressed that there was no board, but you can print one out on photo paper and it works fine. My 5 year old and all the way up enjoyed it. Strongly recommended even by my wife.
