The Ruins of Kiva
Discover the most Aztec artifacts to become world renowned!
You are a rising archaeologist and you just found out that some Aztec ruins were discovered in Mexico by some misguided tourists. What better way to get your name out there than to find a bunch of priceless artifacts. Hastily, you put together a team of seven and fly to Mexico to explore the Ruins of Kiva. You arrive in Mexico, only to find out that you are not exploring the ruins alone. Other teams from around the world have come to put their name on ‘your’ priceless artifacts.
The Ruins of Kiva is a trick taking game. When you are at the dig site you want to win the trick to be the one who discovers the artifact, but you don't want to be the last one to the well for water or you will lose a valuable team member.
There are only three suits to focus on, the Jaguar, the Lizard, and the Vulture. Each of these animals symbolizes something different in the Aztec culture, the Jaguar symbolizes power, the Lizard symbolizes cunning, and the Vulture symbolizes wisdom. All three of these skills you will need to beat your opponents.
Not only does the number of artifacts you discover count to win, but many of the artifacts give you a one time use ability that could give you the edge you need.
Will you find the most artifacts and become world renowned or will someone else steal your fame? Find out as you explore the Ruins of Kiva!
