Two to four players take turns moving around the board to collect treasures and race back to the finish line at the helipad. The player with the most points after all three special treasures have been collected and one player escapes via the helipad wins the game. Each normal treasure earns one point, while special treasures earn two points. The first player to reach the helipad gets a four point bonus, and the person holding the Heart of Vul-Kar crystal at the end of the game gets a whopping six points.

Players take turns drawing cards and moving in any direction along the paths to collect treasures and avoid the marbles.

Players take turns drawing a card from the deck and moving the specified number of spaces in any direction they like. Ladders and bridges will stop a player’s movement, while caves can help them navigate from place to place. Players can jump over each other, allowing one player to steal from the other.

Although the game includes lots of pieces, it only takes a few minutes to set up.

But the rolling marbles set this game apart. Located all around the board, these orange and red marbles get activated by certain actions on cards. Send the marbles rolling to knock players down and take one of their treasures. Block a marble’s path with one of the palm trees, or turn Vul-Kar to start them on a new trajectory. Withstand the onslaught, and keep all your booty for that turn. With a three dimensional board that sets up in minutes and packs back down into the box, kids can enjoy launching the marbles repeatedly and setting them on their paths of destruction.
