In Excavation Earth you lead a faction of alien explorers on a quest to excavate artefacts of human civilization, curate the ultimate art collection, and - most importantly - cash in big! Draft and manage your hand of cards to unearth artefacts in dig sites, deploy traders in markets, and manipulate prices to sell at the best time for the highest profit. But don't forget to stay on top of the struggle for political power in the halls of the mothership! Without envoys, your faction risks being edged out of the upcoming land grab when Earth is settled.
When the game ends, you want to have the best collection of artefacts in your gallery, one that will wow museums and critics throughout the Union of Free Races.
