Gameday First Play – Incan Gold

Posted on by Jesta

Very odd ‘push your luck’ game.

Take the treasure, try not to die while trying to remember to play the right card.

Incan Gold is a quick, fun and tense game in which you and other adventurers explore an old Incan temple in search of gold and treasure. In each of the five rounds, you secretly choose if you want to continue exploring the temple in search of more treasure or retreat to the safety of your camp with your share of the treasure that has been discovered so far.

Each time that an explorer braves new territory, more treasure or a danger appears. When a second card of the same type of danger is turned over, all exposed treasure is buried, leaving the remaining adventurers with nothing. Do you flee the dangerous temple with your portion of the treasure that has been uncovered so far or do you venture into the exciting temple in search of more hidden valuables?

After five rounds of exploration, whoever has the most treasure is the ultimate explorer and winner!

From the publisher: “You and your fellow adventurers travel to Peru to find a ruined Incan temple and its treasures: turquoise, obsidian and gold. There are also rumours of valuable Incan artifacts. Will you chance dangers like giant spiders, mummies and fire during your search, or will you escape back to camp and safety, carrying out your loot?”

That pretty much sums it up. You do get a nice tent to put your stuff in.

There are dangers such as spiders and rock falls etc. If two of these same danger comes out, everyone still in loses all the treasure they have so far. One copy of that danger is removed form the game so you need to remember which one it was for future rounds as that danger is now not so… erm… dangerous.

If you are the last person in you get to keep all the remaining treasure.

To decide if you want to continue or leave you play either one of these cards.

Just remember to play the right one! 🙂 (Yeah, I messed up once…)
