The Lost Treasure Of Akhenaten


ake your family on a fun and exciting adventure to Egypt - right in your own home. It’s an adventure that mixes activities, cultural learning, dice rolling…all while progressing through an integrated Choose Your Own Adventure style story.

When Clarice, a rising archaeologist, makes a surprise breakthrough in her search for the Lost Treasure of Akhenaten, she suddenly disappears. It’s up to your family to find her! Be careful, though, as there’s dangers along the way…but fortune and glory, too, if you can save her and recover the Lost Treasure of Akhenaten!


Your family will meet various characters from helpful museum curators to thieves in the marketplace. They will be encouraged to speak a few Arabic words to gain the trust of some of those characters while also learning geographical sites along the Nile River. Although, they’ll be exposed to many different learning opportunities, The Lost Treasure of Akhenaten is first and foremost FUN! They’ll need to spend their cash wisely (and avoid getting robbed from thieves) if they hope to navigate the different challenges as they make decisions moving throughout the adventure story. They’ll even have the opportunity to play Senet, the ancient board game of the pharaohs!

So, how does it ACTUALLY work.

The ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ works in conjunction with a long list of potential activities and dice rolling that you can set up in your home as PART of the story. You get to choose which of these activities you’d like to include to make the adventure in the story come alive. For example, if when you family gets to the portion in the story where they must look for a specific Egyptian cartouche in a tomb, you’ll have the option to PRINT out the cartouche from the download and hide it somewhere appropriate in your home. So, when you get to that part in the story, your family will get to actually get up and go look for it if they want to continue the story! The adventure will come alive with every activity you include.


Easy to follow instructions ensures that you have everything you need to set up every activity before it’s time to read the story! Simply print out the pages in the ‘Printables’ section as directed, go through the Adventure Script so that you’re familiar with the instructions as described and you’re set.

Points are also earned along the way…because, hey, kids love to earn points!

This adventure was adapted from the Family Adventure series created by Joe Dean, a professional treasure hunt designer, who staged elaborate themed adventures while raising his three sons (now in their 20’s.) Through these adventures he taught them foreign languages, world geography and life lessons that promoted teamwork among the brothers, having a strong character and embracing other cultures while traveling the world. All within his own living room. He explains more about these Family Adventure Nights (as he called them in his free ebook on his Adventure Dad Fun website.)

In a time where video games and screens claim to provide the greatest adventures…there’s The Lost Treasure of Akhenaten to compete and to show that real adventure lay in what’s around us and the fascinating world that we all live in!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
