What It Is
Travel back in time to 1870 when the famous archaeologist, Heinrich Schliemann, discovered Ilium-ancient Troy. As an archaeologist, you have been sent by artifact collectors to excavate the area. Go from one dig site to the next and try to retrieve the best collection of artifacts. Careful planning and timing are necessary, as the further down a site is uncovered, the more valuable the antiquity. Don't wait too long, though, or you may end up with nothing! Ilium includes 50 artifact tokens, 180 wooden archaeologists, five character cards, 108 archaeologist cards, 12 wooden cubes, and instructions in English, Spanish, and French. It is for two to four players.
