Ice as far as the eye can see... In this icy, blizzard-swept world, an isolated town clings to life. Every year, during the summer season, the town's guilds organise expeditions. Their destination: the Valley of the Ancients, where the remains of an ancient civilisation may be buried. In search of answers, prestige or wealth, each guild has its own motivations. Players are archaeologists exploring tiles that they can remove. There are 5 levels of tiles in the game. The first is the ice cap level.

The second, third and fourth are the surface, intermediate and deep artefact levels. The last is the building level. Archaeologists excavate these tiles to collect artefacts which give them reputation points. Ice tiles removed by a player can be played as a help action for him. Building tiles are game-changing rules and represent legacy materials to be discovered as the game progresses.

The game ends when the first building tile is fully uncovered. The players then count their reputation points, which determine the winner.
