In this cooperative game from Family Pastimes, the museum hires a team of archaeologists to head deep into a jungle to find ancient artifacts. Players are that team, ready for action and adventure. The game has three parts: First, players have to hack out the paths to the abandoned caves and temples; second, using the connected paths, players search for and discover the treasures; finally, they must return safely to base camp with what they gathered.
There are dangers and obstacles to avoid, such as the creeping claw, the nasty hairy thing and big boulders rolling over entrances. Players may have to resort to whatever desperate remedy they find in their knapsacks to save themselves -- a super headnet, a laser lantern, a piece of broccoli and even a smelly sock. Yes, few creatures can face the sock.
Caves & Claws is a cooperative, humorous, fantasy game. You are part of a team of archaeologists searching through temples and caves to recover valuable treasures and artifacts. There are pathways built by the players, treasures and dangers, and remedies for the dangers. Cooperation can be fun as the players work to build an accessible path, find the artifacts, and return safely to the tent. Like all Family Pastime Games, the object is to work together and have fun.
