Perilous Pyramids is a quick play all ages competitive card game in which players are encouraged to put on their archeology hats and compete with each other for a place in the history books.
It is the late 19th century and a golden age for the world's archeologists. One by one, daring and intelligent academics dig out, catalogue, and explore a world forgotten by time and sealed away by stone. The pyramids are but open doors to the past -- if you can survive the dangers left by their former owners.
Players take on the role of these archeologists and compete to be the first to reach and successfully explore the central chamber of a yet unexplored pyramid. But it is a perilous encounter as each of the pyramid's chambers contain challenges that will test even the most hardened archeologist.
And if the chamber's themselves don't do you in -- then the greed and desire for fame that your rivals have might.
The road to the center chamber is not one of cooperation, but of aggression and trickery. For in the end, only one can be remembered as the Conqueror of the Perilous Pyramid.
