The three Great Pyramids of the pharaohs of the Fourth Dynasty were built on the Giza Plateau. Besides, there are other structures destined to other members of the reigning family: Mastabas and Hypogea.
In Gizeh!, your group have just discovered a new pyramid and is about to explore it. The first thing you find out is a pharaoh’s old curse whose name has lost in the sands of time. You decide to ignore it and go forward, but soon you arrive to the first chamber where you have to overcome a challenge. Your memory is crucial!
The game has an Exploration phase, where you will go into the pyramid looking for treasures, and an Escape phase, where you will try to get out before being caught by the mummy of the pharaoh.
During the Exploration phase, reveal a new Pyramid card from the deck each turn and place the Explorer pawn on it. Then, players have to overcome the challenge of the chamber they moved. To do so, all players must count to three and show one of their cards at the same time trying to match the symbols shown at the pyramid card.
If the challenge is overcome, go on with next card. You get away from the mummy!
When there are the same 3 treasure symbols on the table, they are under your power! Now you may start the Escape phase and try to get out. However, there are three different kind of treasures in the pyramid, how far do you want to go?
If the group return to the entrance with at least 1 treasure, the group wins the game.
If the challenge is not overcome, you are stuck in the chamber until you make it. Place the played card facing down at the end of the row (the right side).
The mummy is getting close! Discard the first Mummy card. When the pharaoh moves forward to the last card and so you lose. But you may carry out a new expedition and get revenge on the evil mummy.
