"A Good, Low-Conflict, Gateway Game"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Archaeology: The New Expedition strikes me as a good gateway game. There is enough game to it that a 'gamer’ won’t mind playing it and its simple enough to teach your average newcomer.

Personally, how I feel about the game depends on the monument being played and as card games tend to be, it can end up a bit of a swingy luck-fest whether you get a supreme winning run or a bit of a bum hand; with that said you always have options, there are always decisions to make but that can’t mitigate someone getting a bulk of the maps or high-value items and have greater trading value.


Archaeology: The New Expedition is an reimplementation of the popular Archaeology: The Card Game (with several changes).

You are an archaeologist working the dig sites of the Egyptian desert. Search for the right pieces to complete torn parchments, broken pots, and other priceless artifacts. Explore an ancient pyramid in the hope of uncovering a huge stash of treasure! Trade shrewdly at the local marketplace to increase the value of your collection. Sell your treasures to the museum at just the right time for maximum profit.

But beware, the desert also has its dangers! A devastating sandstorm can throw your expedition into disarray, and cunning thieves lurk around the dig site ready to steal your prize discovery!


  • In Archaeology: The New Expedition, you want to find treasures and make the most money possible by selling them to the museum.
  • Players start with four treasure cards in hand; one monument tile is chosen at random, then the chambers of the monument are loaded secretly with treasure cards.
