Ancient Egypt - Day 18 is the eighteenth level of Ancient Egypt in Plants vs. Zombies 2. It is a Last Stand level. This is the first Last Stand level of Ancient Egypt, as well as the intended first of the game. After completing this level, the player receives a money bag.
This level is the first Last Stand in Ancient Egypt and is intended to be the first in the game, sun is given automatically, usually between 2000-3000 sun is given to plan a defense. A number of Plant Food is also given to the player at the start. Sun producing plants and free plants are not allowed. This Last Stand level is swarmed with Camel Zombies, as well as Mummy Zombies via Sandstorm ambush. Bloomerang and any other piercing plants are ideal here, as they can easily take down the zombies mentioned above.
- 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.

Using Premium Plants
Do not use Power Lily in this level, as it will be a waste of sun. Only use it if you have more sun and less Plant Food. Do not use instant-kill plants like Jalapeno or Squash. You could use Starfruit if you want.
Plant a column of Cabbage-pults at the start of the lawn. Next to that, do a column of Peashooters. Next to that, a column of Bonk Choys and then a column of Wall-nuts. Wait until the two gravestones on the Bonk Choy area are destroyed and then plant the two Bonk Choys. Only use Plant Food on Bonk Choys if you need to savage something. When you have zero Plant Food, hit Turbo and watch the level play itself. If you play well, you should get to the Final Wave with your 5 lawnmowers.

Use Plant Food when things get rough. If the zombies are still alive, shovel Pepper-pults and get partial profit. Use that sun on instant kills.
Plant Food is most likely not needed.

This strategy does not require Plant Food, premium content, gemium plants, or losing any lawn mowers. Simply place a column of Repeaters and a column of Laser Beans (place the Laser Beans in the second column). They will obliterate all the enemies, including the Buckethead Zombies. A Buckethead Zombie may take down a Laser Bean at the end of the level if it is lucky but will still not survive. If it is somehow necessary (very rarely, usually due to a combination of poor firing rates from Laser Beans and too many sandstorm zombies in the way), dig up plants to create a Wall-nut if needed. Rotobagas can be used as a substitute for Repeaters (placed ahead of the Laser Beans) and seem to have a 100% success rate in saving lawn mowers. You may also use two Laser Bean columns. This strategy will beat the level extremely quickly and makes for great farming.
Fill the first two columns with Dusk Lobber and the third with Wall-nut. Use plant food on the final wave if you so wish. The Dusk Lobbers will make it look like the zombies never existed.
- There is a modified version of this level in the Gem Jam Epic Quest.
