A push-your-luck loot-grabbing fest - simple, and not too much strategy involved. I really like the wound mechanic, hidden beasties, and the idea of helpful equipment being scattered around the foyer from the excavation team's hasty departure (compared to the other title in the series, Temple of Chad).

Not so sure about the pre-programmed route that the mummies take, and perhaps the addition of another trap instead of solely relying on the falling blocks might have made this a 'must have' title.

I do so hope the series is given another entry, as the concept behind The Adventurers is superb, and works.

A very fun thematic push your luck game that can end quite suddenly. I have played a couple of times and find that even though I play fairly conservative it is still all to easy too get trapped in the pyramid and lose! Out of 3 plays only 3 players have made it out alive.

Push your luck meets Indiana Jones & the Mummies. Great fun. Sadly I was scared off by some of the 'meh' reviews when this first came out. Happily I've discovered since that it's a great game!

This game is quick paced and lots of fun. It is a family game accessible to every one. The randomness of the ceiling collapsing piece by piece makes for tense moments where nobody knows if they are going to get out alive. The decisions you make are important from the very start. Even after a 100 games you'd still have fun playing. I strongly recommend buying this game.

Similar to the other Adventurers game, The Temple of Chac, it has a family friendly feel to it, which I like. It's pretty simple on the surface but still fun to see your friends get screwed over by bad card draws or push their luck too far.

An upgraded version of The Temple of Chac. I like this version better cause you will actually use the whole board unlike in Chac where everybody usually just jumps into the water to avoid the boulder.

I rate Pyramid of Horus a little bit higher than Temple of Chac, because I think it's a little bit more fun. Both games are fairly light but have some room for strategy and planning. The artwork and quality of components are both really nice, and the game can be taught and played quickly.

This is a great press-your-luck game. It's competitive, but only against the game itself, so it's got a pretty unique feel to it. I dig it.

I like the theme and the game is simple to learn. There is a bit of replayability issues with it. I created some custom cards (available in the print section) that changes the pyramid so each game is a bit more different.

I've also created some custom abilities (again print section) for the Chac adventurers so the roaster has increased quite a bit.

Adventurers 2.0. The designers listened to the fans, and complainers, about the first Adventurers game. The gameplay is still a push your luck at its core, but a lot of interesting ideas have been added to the game. Tired of players gaming the system and just keeping the load level at 3 with the best 3 treasures they can find? How about some scorpion/snake/alligator wounds that you can't discard that will act as treasure? Had a bad game where the boulder rolled so slow you could have run the course twice and still beaten it to the exit? How about we have some heavy slabs of rock fall on you instead? All in all I would say it's another hit for the Adventurers team. Will definitely be picking this up when it is on sale.

As far as a push your luck game goes, this one is so much fun! I like this one better than the Temple of Chac mainly because it has the wound/poison cards. As well, the end game bonus (for having the 5 different treasure types) gives you something to strive for. I really hope FF puts out a Temple of Chac expansion adding in wound cards. It would really help to make the series compatible.

Better and worse than the original. Better in that the game is easier to set up, more straightforward to explain, and has a more interesting scoring system. Worse in that the theme isn't quite as fun and iconic.

Much like the first Adventurers game, but solves the problem of player elimination by using curses that slow you down (or force you to drop treasure).

Definitely better than the first one as you feel like you have so many more options of what you can do. And the tension builds as the blocks fall down around you. Very tempted to get this one. 1 Play.

A solid thematic yet random push your luck adventure game. The context gives plenty of details for an emergent story to happen as the players rush around grabbing as much treasure as possible before the pyramid comes crashing down. I can see playing this every couple of months for several years.

The bits and artwork were excellent.

Chose one of eight adventurers and enter the pyramid of Horus in search for wonderful treasures. But beware of snakes, scorpions and aligators as they try to injure you as you search for loot. As if that wasn't bad enough, the tomb contains mummies as well! Get in, get as much loot as you can, get out - if you can.

I really like everything about this game, but just wish it could last a bit longer. Of course, some people like a very short game so that they may play another, but I wanted this to be like a small prolonged adventure. I created some variants which helped extend the game play, and actually prefer it over the box version.

Great game. I use this game on my non taker friends and family. They all seem to like the game, as they ask for me to bring it. I like the test your luck. Compared to most games of such it seems to be the easier to learn and play. Love the dropping rocks.
