Game target: Each player is director of an expedition intent on exploring Tikal in search of the secret paths that lead to the temples and precious treasures that have remained hidden for over 1000 years. A player receives points during four scoring rounds for each recovered treasure and for each temple that he controls. But, both temples and treasures can change hands. The expedition that earns the most points exploring Tikal wins the game.

A fun game, but with slow players it might drag a bit. It's probably best with the "advanced" auction rules, to remove some of the randomness in the game.
