You are a rogue archaeologist, traveling the world for history’s lost artifacts. But the market for artifacts can shift like the rains of Africa: One minute, treasures from a lost pharaoh’s pyramid are all the rage with collectors, and the next minute religious artifacts discovered in a remote temple are what’s in demand.

In Curios, players act as archeologists acquiring artifacts from various treasure sites. However, you don't know the value of the items you excavate, and therefore you must deduce the value of your treasures based on what you know about other players cards, and then use that information to pursue ventures which are more profitable.


Curios is an interesting combination of worker placement, deduction and bluffing mechanics with a short run-time but plenty of replayability.


AEG have scheduled the release of Curios for September 2019, but until then you can keep up-to-date through their website.

The only real difference between a grave robber and archeologist is time. Discuss!
