Perilous Pyramids is a fast paced, competitive card game for all ages.
A fast paced, competitive card game for 2 - 6 players, Perilous Pyramids is set in the heyday of pyramid exploration, the 1920's! Watch out for tricks, traps, and most importantly your fellow explorers as you race to be the first to the central chamber!
The full version of the game comes with 190 full color cards with 320 lb card stock. Some people say it's overkill, but these cards will stand up to as many times as you'd like to play it! (which we believe will be a lot!)
No game would be complete without the instructions, which you can download here.
We've just partnered with the excellent folks at Artisan Dice to bring you a limited number of pyramid shaped custom card boxes! Not only are they shaped like a pyramid, but they are made out of Padouk wood, which primarily grows in Egypt and the surrounding territory!
This is our first game, and instead of selling it to another company, we wanted to produce it ourselves. After discovering just how overwhelming it is to get the art done, to get it printed, and to get it distributed, we realized that we needed help.
After quite a lot of work, and far too many emails, we've lined up a printer that will print the cards, the instructions, and the boxes, put it all together and wrap it. We've worked with them to get a wonderful quote that meets our expectation for quality and still allows us to keep a price point that we want. However, we have to order at least a thousand pieces.
Meeting or exceeding our goal will allow us to get the game shipped to us and from there, we'll get the games sent out to all of you and we can then begin to get Perilous Pyramids on the shelves.
Broke In Games is a small game company comprised of Derek, Devin, and James. The three of us love playing board games, and now, love making them too. We have several active projects, and with your help, Perilous Pyramids will be the first of many!

As stated earlier, this is our first time publishing a game, so everything is new to us. However, we aren't all new to business in general. Derek has run several successful small businesses and has years of experience in the printing industry.
Devin has years of professional experience with the shipping industry, coordinating pickups, deliveries, and has a strong grasp on everything it takes to ship product overseas.
James and Devin have been regular playtesters for a very prolific card game publisher for several years now, and know the ins and outs of creating a fun and engaging card game.
All of our levels at $25 and up get you a full physical copy of the game. It contains 190 cards and plays up to 6!
