California Bones and the Temple of Death (all female game)


For 8, 9 or 10 female players (Age 13+).

The year is 1935 and in the steamy jungles of Guatemala a thrilling race is on. Rival archaeologists, California Bones and Art E. Fax, have been getting closer to the hidden location of Chubbychuppa, the legendary Mayan statue. They are being followed by a number of other archaeologists and treasure hunters, all with the same objective, to find the statue.


The statue, made from jade with crystal eyes, is over 1300 years old and dates back to the Classic Mayan period of history. The story of Chubbychuppa is described in the Hamburg Codex, an ancient Mayan document only recently deciphered. Ownership of the statue is said to give enormous powers to the owner. However the Codex also warns that to seek the statue without a true heart will be fatal. Who will win the race for the statue and will the winner and loser survive.

In Guatemala’s steamy land. A Mayan city, dead but grand. Tikal is the place you seek. Where in the trees the monkeys shriek. You’ll find me deep in Temple 4. That is if you can find the door.
Art E. Fax
