Mac helps out on an archeological dig for the tomb of Alexander the Great, but the expedition seems to be followed by bad luck. Several incidents nearly cause a shutdown. Then Mac finds clues leading to Alex's tomb.

Unfortunately, the accidents are not coincidental, and they meet a very vengeful man who traps them inside the grave.

  1. Used sugar water to dry sand impression for plaster mold
  2. Throws alcohol in a face of a man holding a torch to his face, as well as a distractor, his hat and shirt catch fire.


Goofs: Steam is immediately produced after Mac adds the water after lighting the fire. This indicates that the container for the water was hot to begin with, which would be impossible if the tomb was only being opened for the first time.


"Oh I've heard about you! You're the guy who does the whatchamacallits, you know, MacGyverisms; turns one thing into another?"
