"Tikal offers jungle brilliance for 10 action points a turn!" - TUAW.com

Explore the untamed jungles of Guatemala! Tikal is an award-winning board game from designers Wolfgang Kramer and Michael Kiesling.

Explore the untamed jungles of Guatemala at Tikal: the most important and largest of all Mayan sites.  Send your expedition members out from base camp to discover buried treasure and uncover over-grown temples.  But stay alert, as both treasures and temples can change hands as you compete with other expeditions!  Each turn, you place a new tile representing an area of the jungle you have just mapped, then spend action points to explore.  When a volcano tile is revealed, each player has one extra chance to improve their position, then points are awarded.  Plan your moves and stake your claims wisely, and your expedition will take it's place in the history books!

With stunning HD graphics and trademark attention to detail and theme, this latest offering from developer and publisher Sage Board Games makes it simple and entertaining to play a quick game of Tikal with your friends or by yourself -- no matter where you are!

Combining deep strategy with an intuitive and beautiful visual presentation, Tikal draws you into the unknown secrets of the jungle and will bring you back for more, time and time again.  Choose your favourite of 6 Mayan totems as your avatar, and then discover the true power of this ancient civilization as you compete against them in solo play.  Once you've mastered the game, with the help of optional hints and the comprehensive rules and game guide, connect with other players online for turn-based multiplayer fun!

With no setup time required, no pieces to lose, and no arguments about the rules, the future of board games is here and Tikal gives you exactly what you want -- to play!
