Description
 
Incan Gold is an award-winning game in which players push their luck as they head into a ruined temple, attempting to find the most jewels. Each turn, a card is turned over that increases the gold found in a temple or shows a hazard. Players can attempt to escape, keeping the loot that they've acquired, or stay in the temple, hoping for increased profits. As players escape, those in the temple will acquire bigger shares of each pile of gold found, but also run the risk of dying if the same hazard card is drawn twice. Up to eight people can play this game, so it works very well at parties and other gatherings, as players decide whether or not to stay or leave the temples. With quality components and a compelling theme, Incan Gold will be the first choice of large groups looking for a fun filled game. GRYPHON BOOKSHELF SERIES #6

Problematic theme ruins fun. December 13, 2016
Reviewer: Gwen K. from USA  
I actually love the mechanics of the game. The rules and game play itself are great. The theme is where my troubles begin and end. I do not think highly of game themes that involve taking from cultures that were eradicated because of brutal conquests/colonization. I want to instill a sense of cultural respect and historical knowledge in my children and that is negated in this game. If this game had a better and culturally respectful theme it would be super fun and a near perfect push your luck game which I could then rate 5 stars. For me however the fun is ruined by the idea of making a game out of stealing from and making light of a very real culture, who's traditions are still very alive in the descendants of the Incan people living in modern day Peru. If in the event a better theme is applied to this game I will be the first to buy it.

A proven and popular press-your-luck game for all May 31, 2012
Reviewer: EndersGame from BGG  
Incan Gold is one of the essential must-haves in the Gryphon Games Bookshelf series, because it's a quick and fun filler with a huge amount of a appeal.

What makes it a hit?  It plays quickly, handles groups of up to eight easily, has a a huge fun factor, appeals to people of all ages, has great looking components, and easy rules that are quick to teach. Few other games can provide all these elements in one package.

The theme is accessible, and a very high fun factor as a result of the press-your-luck element and simultaneous selection mechanic. This cuts out down time, and keeps the game fun for everyone. The amount of fun and table time this game has seen with a variety of groups is hard to beat. The Gryphon Games edition also has improved some of the components from the earlier Sunriver edition.

You can't go wrong with Incan Gold! Fun, fun, fun!
