Curse of the Mummy's Tomb

Well one of my plans for 2015 was to play a game of GW's Curse of the Mummy's Tomb that was released back in 1988. I had played the solo version a couple of times but hadn't finished the full game before as the only time I tried we ran out of time before we had finished. Well I rectified that on Monday after watching the Superbowl (great game BTW - as a Packers fan I didn't really care who won and just wanted a good game and I got that alright). It is a fun game to play and the design of it using a 3D Pyramid is really cool. It is a game where one can play cards on other players to stuff them up which some might not like; it is a bit random too but most boardgames have an element of randomness to them. Only real criticism I would have is it is too hard to discover useful items in the game due to how the rules work regarding encounters. Anyway here are some pics of the game:
