As treasure hunters, players go on a quest for legendary treasures, with their journey leading them up the icy peaks of Frosty Mountain, into the thickets of the Tangled Jungle, and down into the depths of Lava Caves.
At the start of each game round, players assemble a hand of 9 cards, comprising adventurers, watchdogs, coins, and actions.
Thus equipped, players are ready to start the treasure hunt. Be careful, though, as only two treasures await at each location. The player with the strongest band of adventurers gains one of these treasures, while the player with the fastest band of adventurers fetches the other. Everyone else must return home empty-handed.
Among these treasures are precious artifacts and powerful magical scrolls – as well as items that no one really wants to collect!
After their treasure hunt, whether successful or not, the hunters must still make a stand against sneaking goblins who want to steal their hard-earned treasures. Anybody who hasn’t defended their holdings with enough watchdogs must part with some of their coins.
The player who has collected the most precious treasures at the end of the game is the winner!
