Ankama Board Games announces Treasures of Cibola, a family-style board game that plays in about 15 minutes. The game was designed by Romaric Galonnier. It is for 2-4 players, ages 8 and up.
In Treasures of Cibola, the players are exploring the ancient temples of the city using a betting mechanism, pitting their team of explorers against the teams of the other players. Be careful though! Every time the temple is explored, it becomes less and less stable. The game ends after just 8 turns and whoever has rescued the most treasure, i.e. scored the most points, wins.
In ARGH! players take the role of rival animal operatives fighting to stop the evil human scientists from experimenting on any more innocent animals. Ratchet, the leader of ARGH! has charged you with destroying the lab once and for all. Unfortunately, he has also charged other animals with the same task and there is not enough glory for all! Act quickly, find allies where you can and anything you can do to hinder your rival freedom fighters couldn’t hurt either…right?
On your turn you will draw a card from one of three decks (Garden, House and Laboratory), look at it in secret and decide to keep it face up or give it to another player face down. Without knowing what the card is, that player then chooses to keep it face down or return it to you face up. Play continues in this way until one of the three decks is empty or any player has two face-up bomb cards.
A player with two bomb cards is declared the winner but if a deck runs out first, each player reveals all their face down cards. If nobody has two or more bombs, the value of their cards will determine each player’s final score. Check out the official rule book for a complete rule explanation.
“Join me and together we shall annihilate this place, the symbol of our oppression!” – Ratchet, leader of Animals Revolt aGainst Humans.

ARGH! plays in 5 – 15 minutes and set for release in January 2018!
