|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!
According to the designer, Archaeology: The New Expedition differs Archaeology: The Card Game through the inclusion of tent cards, the addition of new treasure types and additional cards to allow for 5 players, the adjustment of some treasure values, and the inclusion of 6 monuments instead of 1 to have more variety when exploring.
