To access a Jewel Room, the player must reach the center of an Egyptian temple after solving the Sphinx's riddle. Several magic carpets with words on them will float about the room. The player must read the sentence on the wall, then choose the carpet with the word that correctly fills in the blank. There are two rounds. After completing both rounds, the player can access the Jewel Room.
