Why It's On The List

  • I've played this push-your-luck game with gamers, elementary school kids, Bible study groups... and even with a group of groomsman at a wedding rehearsal - and each time has been a success.

Tips & Tricks:

    • It works with 4-8 players, but it really shines with 6-8.
    • You must adjust your tactical decisions based on the number of players - money is much more plentiful in games with less players.


    • Incan Gold is the revamping of this game - and will work just fine - but I don't like the production quality nearly as much. (Granted, Diamant - the German edition of this game - was price-y for what you got in the box.) The little cardboard crates are better than the tents - and dropping meeples is much cleaner than choosing cards.
    • I do, however, like the addition of artifact cards to Incan Gold.
