Another fantastic game. Set collection with an interesting time driven card mechanic. This is a great family game. Just don't start crying when all you can do is draw sand. Quality components. I love the theme in this game, who doesn't want to have the chance to play an archeologist for the night - gathering treasures and displaying them for prestige.
Research, uncover and dig for buried treasure . . . without getting your hands dirty! Few games will engross you in theme the way Thebes does. Fast playing, easy to learn and fun, with a nice balance of strategy and luck. If you ever wanted to be an archaelogist or like treasure hunts, get this game.
