Send your expedition members out from base camp to discover buried treasure and uncover over-grown temples. But stay alert, as both treasures and temples can change hands as you compete with other expeditions!
Each turn, you place a new tile representing an area of the jungle you have just mapped, then spend action points to explore. When a volcano tile is revealed, each player has one extra chance to improve their position, then points are awarded. Plan your moves and stake your claims wisely, and your expedition will take it's place in the history books!
With no setup time required, no pieces to lose, and no arguments about the rules, the future of board games is here and Tikal gives you exactly what you want -- to play!
How to play:
Choose your favorite of 6 Mayan totems as your avatar, and then discover the true power of this ancient civilization as you compete against them in solo play.
On a players turn they perform the following actions:
1.Place the next terrain tile on the board; and,
2.Use 10 action points to explore Tikal
Play continues in order with each player placing a new tile and exploring until the volcano tile is drawn. When a volcano tile is drawn players are scored and given 10 more APs to set themselves up for the best possible score.
After the last tile is played a final scoring round occurs and the winner is determined.
