Homeschool Approved – Game “This Belongs in a Museum”

We recently picked up a new “board game” by Rather Dashing Games. This game is a GREAT quality, with heavy duty pieces and box so it is bound to last with the many hands in our family. You build your board while you are playing gathering points and stealing points with your archaeologist and mummy. The artwork on the game is awesome (however hard for Larry to differentiate between some of the colors being that he is color blind.)

Our family loves playing odd and unusual games. This one included. It allowed the kids to keep their interest in this strategy game that will be different every time that you play it because the pieces change every play. It does take 30+ minutes and is for ages 10+.
