The board starts small, with only a few of the tiles revealed. As players explore the jungle, new tiles are revealed and the board grows in unpredictable ways — a completely different game each time.
Hidden in the jungle, you’ll find relics with six different insignia made from six different materials. To win, you must collect four matching relics — either four with the same insignia or four of the same material — and fly away from the jungle to victory.
Hand (“Backpack”) Management
You’ll need more than just relics if you hope to travel the treacherous terrain and survive the dangers of the jungle. You’ll also need supplies like machetes, mountain climbing gear, traps, tranquilizer darts, and more.
Five Supplies: Tranquilizer Dart, Raft, Machete, Climbing Gear, First Aid Kit
You carry relics and supplies together in your backpack, but your backpack space is limited! As the game progresses, you’ll have to choose carefully. As you find more relics, you’ll have to make tough decisions about which supplies you have to leave behind.
