For the level before the 6.7.1 update, see Ancient Egypt - Day 23 (pre-6.7).

Ancient Egypt - Day 23 is the 23rd level of Ancient Egypt in Plants vs. Zombies 2. When this level is finished for the first time, the player gets an Ancient Egypt Piñata.


This level includes some dangerous zombies like Pharaoh Zombie and a Mummified Gargantuar. Chilling plants like Winter Melon are recommended to stop Explorer Zombies from destroying your defenses, while instant-kill plants like Cherry Bomb can be used to wipe out large crowds of zombies or to defeat the Mummified Gargantuar in the end. The player might have not obtained any "good" plants if they have only played Ancient Egypt, so it is recommended that they go into other worlds to unlock other better plants. Fortunately, since this level is rather slow-paced, the player has a lot of time to set up their defenses before the zombie crowds get huge.


The small number next to the zombie icon means that zombie will always appear in that lane, with 1 being the topmost lane and 5 being the bottommost one.

    • Defeat some Coneheads and Bucketheads at the start with Potato Mines if your Peashooters' level is low.
    • On the fourth column start planting Wall-nuts. They will be very powerful combined with Spikeweeds.
    • When Pharaoh Zombies or Explorer Zombies appear, plant Spikeweeds in their lanes. If you brought Snow Pea with yourself, then it also can be helpful against them.
    • Try to have at least two columns of Spikeweeds at the second wave.
    • You can get up to 6 Plant Food on this level. Use it on Spikeweeds or Peashooters.
    • When the Mummified Gargantuar apppears on the final wave, use one or two Plant Foods on Peashooters on its lane. You can also use Stunions to stun the Gargantuar.

  • To kill the Mummified Gargantuar in the end, first weaken it with Cherry Bomb and then just wait for the Threepeaters to kill him.
