From the Publisher...

Tikal is the most important and largest of all Mayan sites. It is located in the midst of an impenetrable jungle in northern Guatemala. The Mayans lived in Tikal from 600 BC to 900 AD, but little is known of the civilization that thrived there for 1500 years. As of this writing only a small fraction of the site has been excavated and investigated. Each player is the 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.

Tikal is a fairly unique game with interesting mechanics. It's a tile laying game, but you move your pieces all around and try to control areas. Lots to do on each turn but not overwhelming. Usually gets pretty intense late in the game! 2-4 players, by Rio Grande, Enjoy!

This is a beautiful game with a fantastic theme. Who doesn't want to be an explorer for the night in search of temples and treasure. This area control game has a modular board which means plenty or replayability. A great addition for every game collection.

An under-appreciated gem, Tikal is about worker placement, tile placement, and area control. The game has a small, easy-to-learn list of rules which generate a lot of fascinating mechanics. As such, I put it in with Settlers of Catan or Carcassonne - hidden depth in the guise of a light, accessible game. Couldn't recommend it more!
