Archaeology: The New Expedition
Explore the Egyptian desert in search of fame, glory, and—most importantly—money in this thrilling card game.
Join the Expedition
In Archaeology: The New Expedition, you are an archaeologist leading expeditions in search of lost relics. These artifacts lie hidden in the desert, but they belong in a museum! Luckily, the museum will pay you handsomely for whatever you deliver. Uncover shards of ancient pottery, valuable coins, masks of the Pharaohs, and more during your excavations. You can sell each right away, but you can earn even more by delivering complete sets. Don't wait too long to sell, though, or you might lose your discoveries to rival explorers or vicious sandstorms. The player with the most money when the Treasure deck runs out wins!
Dig for Treasure
Your expeditions will take you to all manner of locations. In addition to the regular dig site, the game features one of six Monument tiles to explore, each with particular rules for discovering the treasures within. Each Monument tile brings its own risks and rewards to your expeditions, creating a new challenge with every game. Gather your treasures and wait for the perfect moment to sell. Only the boldest adventurers will emerge from the desert with newfound fame and fortune!
