Product Description

Product Description

Players become archaeologists, searching for hidden scarab tiles, in an effort to unearth the sacred "Staff of Ahmen-Ra."

From the Manufacturer

Valley of Pharaohs is a rousing archaeological adventure that has players racing to be first to excavate the Scepter of Amun-Ra. Players become archaeologists, searching for hidden scarab tiles, in an effort to unearth the sacred Scepter. Find safety in an oasis or risk peril by spinning the dreaded Wheel of Fate. But beware the Mummy, who has come to life wandering the board. The mummy is always dangerous, falling in and out of your control. This game is played on a wonderfully illustrated cloth map of ancient Egypt with cast-metal playing pieces, each one a different-colored caravan camel. This Bookshelf Edition comes packaged in an antiqued wooden book, making it a stylish decor piece as well as a fun game.

We just got this game for Christmas. Like our other "Front Porch" game, Dread Pirate, it comes in a fine wooden case, well painted and sturdy. The pieces and parts are quality made; From the glass jewels and metal coins, to the carved playing pieces and cloth game board, everything enhances the playing experience. I happened to get both games at discount, but even at full price they would be well worth it. Play is easy, but fun and engaging and makes for good family entertainment and (gasp) interactivity.
I would recommend (and have) both of these games to friends.

Due to my husband's love of Egyptian articfacts and history, I purchased this as a gift. We played it over the Christmas holiday and it was fun, educational, and an extremely well made game with high class box and playing pieces.

My family really enjoyed this game. Our favorite game is Dread Pirate made by the same folks and we thought we'd give this game a go. It was a lot of fun and worth the money. Dread Pirate is still the best board game we own.

I bought this for my two brothers' kids, since they are wild about Dread Pirate, which I introduced them to several years ago. They got Valley of the Pharaohs for Christmas and voluntarily wrote me enthusiastic "Thank YOu" letters (!!) in which they went on at length about how this was the first present they opened and how they spent most of the day (and, I learned later, most of Christmas vacation) playing it over and over because it was so much fun. I can't wait to play it with them next time I go visit.

They've continued to play it since, introducing all their friends to it and playing it whenever the families get together. I'd LOVE to see Front Porch/Sababa produce a lot more of these exciting, educational, and very high-quality games!

Previously had this game, when it was cheaper!! Game got ruined and the kids wanted it again.

Long story short, awesome game for family night!!

Plug for the seller who I do not know, but it was shipped quickly with a nice rare touch of a hand written note with the invoice.

Quick and timely service!!
