The Accidental Archaeologist- The Quest for El Dorado: The Golden Temples Boardgame Review

Confession Time: A few months back I ordered some games for pick up at the Miniature Market retail store in St. Louis. I stopped in to pick them up and, as one tends to do, I checked out the Ding and Dent section where slightly banged up versions of games get deeply discounted. Despite my mask and a full regiment of sanitizing, I was still feeling a bit of anxiety being in a store. So, I rushed around a bit but I spied a dented copy of The Quest for El Dorado for 70% off. Doing some quick math, I figured that would be roughly $15.00, I love the game and thought that it would surely be a hit with the family, so I snagged it. Upon getting home, I posted a pic of the Doctor Who expansions I had ordered and The Quest for El Dorado on Twitter (@rapierdwit) and Josh Look responded and said he would be interested to know what I thought of Golden Temples. Golden Temples? Aww, fuck.

Thanks for reviewing this. I think we will stick with the original QED and take a pass on this one.

I love the base game + heroes and hexes, but could never tell if this was worth getting in addition. I certainly don't need the game to last twice as long. Are the additional market cards back compatible with the original game?

Yes (and no). You'll have to grab torch cards since this don't exist in the original when you come upon those type of spaces and those cards can be a virtually useless part of the game depending on the layout you choose when combined with the base game. So. a thin, optimized deck can backfire if you misjudge if you still need a type of card later in the game. It generally just leads to a slightly bloated deck... just in case.
