Product Description

Product Description

Beautiful bits! Treasure hunting and tomb raiding! Back-stabbing your fellow players by stealing their hard-earned artifacts!

Wadjet's playing pieces, board, cards, and handouts are first class. Players take the roles of expedition leaders searching for lost treasures, searching tombs and trying to avoid awakening the guardian spirits within. Just getting into a tomb is not enough, you have to avoid traps, superstitious help, and plain old bad luck.

Through the process of investigating the 4 main tombs, each player eliminates treasures from their list, until they can guess at the final treasure buried in the central tomb. A player may only try to claim the final treasure if they've accumulated enough of the other treasures, and have gotten them safely into their own base camp.

Wadjet is at once an exciting and an educational board game that takes players on a journey of archaeological discovery. Based on historical facts surrounding the opening of King Tut's tomb by Howard Carter in the 1920s, the game can be played by two, three, or four players. There's a lot to learn about ancient Egypt's customs and people while players race to be the first to uncover treasure that has been stolen. The first player to find enough treasure wins the game. Player's tokens are three-dimensional busts of archaeologists. The board and playing cards are all elegantly designed in an Egyptian motif. The game set includes well-written instructions, a detailed account of Carter's find, and a beautifully depicted photo gallery and descriptions of artifacts from Tut's tomb. This is a wonderful game for family play and learning. For similar expeditions, see Palenque. --Lee Strucker

Wadjet is one of the most beautifully produced games I have seen in over 10 years of game collecting- all the parts have a look and feel that almost wants to be put on display instead of being played with.
However, this is a game. You're supposed to play it.
I would have to say that 4 players is the ideal for this game; it keeps things running considerably more smoothly than during a 3 player game where not all treasure can be held by all the players (think having to leave some cards in the box for Clue). This makes for some interesting but undesirable endgames (one player was 25000 dollars in debt and had to get rid of it before he could win; I simply had to figure out what two buried treasures were when it was completely impossible for me to pick up any more). Go with all four spots filled and have most of the evening set aside; the games that I've played have taken two to three hours. Despite the longish playing time (short compared to Avalon Hill's unbelievable game of Civilization, which can take around 20 hours for *one* game), it is very well spent. Learn some Egyptian history, dig up treasure, do everything you can to make sure victory is yours... play the game.

Wadjet is without a doubt the best board game I have played this year. It ranks in the top 5 board games that I have ever played and in the top 10 of games in general. For those who have not played Wadjet, it is the "CLUE" game for the new millenium. A must buy for game lovers! When playing some games, if it is not your turn, you can watch TV, get a snack ot catnap. Not so in Wadjet. If you are not paying attention, you will miss out on so much game winning information that you will be left behind by the other players. Because of the attention that must be paid in Wadjet, the game seems to take no time at all to play. Once again a must for game fans everywhere.

I absolutely love Wadjet. It reminds me of Sorry and Clue but much more sophisticated. Be prepared for a long game that keeps you on your toes. The rules are a bit daunting at first but once you get into it, it's a lot of fun. Paying close attention and being a good record keeper are very important.

We bought Wadjet last year - what a gorgeous game - I've never seen artwork like this in a game before, and the enclosures - glossary, story of the search for treasures in Egypt - everything is beautifully made. I love the artist's depiction of these ancient treasures - wonderful colors and details. What's more, the game play is intriguing and fun - the best part is that both adults and children can enjoy playing this together feeling equally challenged! I would highly recommend this for anyone who loves a good game! (It certainly makes a beautiful and impressive gift!)

My family found this game both extremely educational while at the same time great fun. All members of the family, from the preteens to the grownups, could relate not only to the game but also to one another during play. This game has encouraged us to further research Egyptology and the history of that region of the world.

This is, quite possibly, the best game ever. I also recommend playing with at least four people and my friends and I have found that playing as teams is also fun if you have more than four players. Not only is this game incredibly engaging, it also gives the players plenty of opportunities to interact with each other. There are ways to develop and act on grudges (especially fun if you have a vindictive streak...), team up with one player against another... It's fantastic and impossible to describe in under 1,000 words. But I'm going to go there with one of those horrible statements that I generally hate: "If you like the game Clue, you'll love this game." It's much more complicated and 'adult,' but a lot of the objectives and basic ideas are the same. I recommend it to everyone I know.

If you're ready to move up quite a few levels in the world of game boards then read on! If you're still entertained to the fullest with CandyLand read no more this game is WAY over your head. So you think your fit for this game, well here's my honest opinion. I Really loved this game and I can't see why any advanced board gamer wouldn't enjoy it. Though there is one con, the directions are monsterous! They're very long, but the main thing is that they're complicated! beware. But wait, don't say no yet and leave this page, read on. Once you finish the directions they stick in your head and after all are much simpler then expected. When you finish the directions you won't ever have to read them again, and you get the hang of the game in a jiff! So, you made it past the directions, then you know how fun and easy this game really is. It provides endless hours of Fun! This game does have many peices and therefore I expect isn't the most durable. but it is very organized when it come to the packing of the peices. Don't run away or get this wrong but this game is also amazingly educational. I Strongly recommend this game for ages 11-111! This game passes my test with flying colors! This game also provides hours of fun with family or friends! I hope my reveiw helped you choose the perfect game for you or a present. : o )
