Product Description In Thebes, you and your fellow players are archeologists who travel through Europe acquiring knowledge, equipment, and assistants. You will be required to excavate historical sites in the regions of ancient Greece, Crete, Egypt, Palestine, and Mesopotamia. Time is of the essence in Thebes. Players have to manage time as every action takes between one and ten weeks, with the game only lasting for three years. The innovative time track serves both as a turn indicator and game timer. Spend too much time preparing and there will only be dirt left to dig up! From the Manufacturer In this game, the players travel back to the end of the 19th century to take on the roles of the famous archaeologists who discovered so much in so short a time. The names Schliemann, Evans, Carter, and Koldeway are still famous today. Like those they seek to emulate, the players seek to discover those antique treasures and places which have been buried in the sands for thousands of years. Each player takes the role of an archaeologist. They first travel across Europe to find useful knowledge of different archaeological areas and then they excavate at places they expect to find treasures. The players score points for discoveries at these locations. Also, the players can acquire articles to assist them in excavation and travel, and will visit exhibitions to present their finds.
