In the game the players become “prospective” archaeologists, who are searching for the stolen artefacts from ancient civilisations, trying to collect as many collections (sets of cards) as they can. Who becomes the owner of the most precious sets of objects, wins!

The sets of cards are six different ancient civilisations. We can find there some objects related to Ancient Egypt and Ancient Greece. There are for example: ancient coins, an ancient vase, ancient jewellery, an ancient helmet, and the statue of Athena:
