Egypt 1926. The Valley of the Pharaohs holds many secrets, but none so great as the Scepter of Amun-Ra. On your quest to secure the Scepter you will face desert bandits, blinding sandstorms and the ill wishes of your fellow players. But safe haven and good fortune can be found within the oasis of the friendly Bedouin. Collect resources to overcome obstacles or lay obstacles to hinder your opponents. Roll doubles and you control the mummy, but beware no one masters the mummy for long. Cast metal playing pieces, metal coins and individual character cards provide rich context and detail to this exciting family game of fortune and peril.

Bookshelf Edition WordSpot
Bookshelf Edition WordSpot

MSRP: $39.95
Gender: Boys And Girls
Age: 8 and Up

Award Winner!

Letterpress craftsmen of centuries past used to hide words within a block of text as a challenge to their peers. They called this past time vedere parola. To celebrate this rich tradition Front Porch Classics has created WordSpot, a timeless game where players try to find hidden words among an arranged board of lettered tiles. “The moment the game is learned, it feels like you've known how to play it all along. It's never about using words that other people don't know; it's about using words that everyone knows. As a result, WordSpot is an educational game, but in a subtle, fun way,” Christine Simmons, PR account executive for Front Porch Classics, told TDmonthly. It was named one of the 100 Best Children’s Products of 2006 by Dr. Toy.
