由擅長德式家庭遊戲的澳洲設計師Phil Walker-Harding設計，早期簡單又饒富趣味的機制，比起他的經典作品《熊熊公園》與《可可亞》，帶有更多風險評估的刺激感！ 遊戲中，玩家輪流從挖掘場中翻開文物，並在適當的時機交換文物，並向博物館出售。每套出售的文物越完整，你就能獲得越高的分數。另外還有盜賊、沙塵暴的特殊能力會影響賽局。此版本為原版《埃及考古》強化版，更新增帳篷卡和6種遺跡，讓遊戲充滿變化和更多策略！
In Archaeology: The New Expedition, you want to find treasures and make the most money possible by selling them to the museum. Players start with four treasure cards in hand; one monument tile is chosen at random, then the chambers of the monument are loaded secretly with treasure cards.
On a turn, a player digs for treasure by drawing from the deck. If they find treasure, they don't show anyone and keep it; if they find a thief, they steal a card at random from an opponent; and if they find a sandstorm, all players lose half of their cards in hand to the marketplace, which starts the game with five face-up cards. (Each player has a tent that they can discard to avoid the effects of one sandstorm.) After digging, a player can:
- Discard one or more maps to explore one chamber of the monument, looking at all the cards there and keeping some number of them.
- Trade at the marketplace by laying down one or more treasure cards and picking up cards with equal or lesser trading value.
- Sell to the museum by placing sets of treasure cards in front of them; in general, the more cards you have of a type, the more the set is worth.
Players can explore only once, but they can do the other actions repeatedly, and they can take these actions in any order. Once the deck is empty, players keep taking actions until they all pass in turn, after which they sell treasures to the museum. Whoever ends up with the most money wins!
According to the designer, Archaeology: The New Expedition differs from Archaeology: The Card Game through the inclusion of tent cards, the addition of new treasure types and additional cards to allow for five players, the adjustment of some treasure values, and the inclusion of six monuments instead of one to have more variety when exploring.
