|Rules:||Rules in English|
|Comments:||My edition is from 2002. The designer is Wolfgang Kramer.
active player can execute each of the following three actions once per
turn and in any order:
Although it's quite luck-driven with the drawn terrain tiles, you can still make a lot of planning and it's not necessary to reach the temple if you have succeeded to get other treasures and adventure markers, although this is the most common goal. You need to plan what kind of tools you might need to get through the tiles and be prepared. A nice touch is the back pack, where the number of empty spaces decides how many tiles you may move each turn (but you can throw away something before you move).
The game is currently only published in German.
|Extract from the Essen game report 2002||We met up with Peter
just before 10 am again. Today we took aim at Goldsieber to test “Goldland”.
A German guy asked us to join and he knew the rules pretty well, as he had
started to play yesterday, but the game had been cancelled halfway through
it. As I like exploration games, this game went to my heart, although its
simple and light. Still it gives several interesting choices. Probably
it’s good with both non-gamers and children.
