A challenging adventure game to lead a treasure hunt on Oak Island.
Oak Island is a 140-acre island on the south shore of Nova Scotia, Canada. For hundreds of years, people have been searching for long-lost treasure believed to be hidden there. Many searchers have died trying to find the treasure, leading many to believe that the island and its treasure are cursed.
In this challenging adventure game, you will lead the next treasure hunting party. To succeed where so many before have failed, you will need to employ your own strategies to uncover the island’s secrets, and if successful, discover astounding treasures.
You will have a limited amount of time, money and crew members to complete your search. You must be wise with how you spend your resources to maximize your chances of finding treasure, while avoiding the many pitfalls that have thwarted previous searchers.
Metal Detector – choose one lot per day and search for metal objects buried just below the surface
Bulldozer – bulldoze one lot per day, unearth objects buried up to 10 feet deep
Excavator – choose an area to excavate and dig up to 30 feet deep
Core Sample Drilling Rig – choose a point and drill to extract core samples revealing potential finds up to 200 feet underground
Boreholes – when you’re ready for a big dig, use a crane and oscillator to bore steel caissons deep into the earth
Drain The Swamp – pump the water out of the swamp to enable metal detecting and excavating
Beware of potential hazards that could endanger your crew such as inclement weather, accidents, floods, poison gases, or cave-ins.
You will have a limited budget to fund search activities. Be strategic in your search methods and conservative with your spending.
You have very limited time on the island to conduct your exploration. Manage your time wisely and make the most of every opportunity.

Play the fun, fast-paced, Asshole card game against 12 unique computer characters, each with varying skill-levels and unique playing styles; choose to play against 2-5 characters at a time.
The object of the game is to be the first to get rid of all of your cards. One to four cards of the same value can be thrown at a time. The next player must match the number of cards thrown and throw one or more cards of the same or greater value. Players can pass the turn if they do not have any legal cards to play or if they choose to hold their cards for a later turn. In this variation, 2’s are the highest card and Jokers are wild.
Whoever gets rid of all their cards first becomes the President, and the next player is the Vice-President. The last player left holding cards is the Asshole, and if there are four or more players, the last person to get rid of their cards is the Vice-Asshole. In the next round, the Asshole gives their best 2 cards to the President, and the President passes back their two worst cards. If there is a Vice-Asshole, that player must pass their best single card to the Vice-President, who in turn returns their single weakest card.
At the end of each round the President receives 3 points, the Vice-President Receives 2 points and, the Vice-Asshole (if there is one) receives 1 point. The Player with the most points at the end of the game wins.

Each player is dealt 3 ‘face down cards’. You are not allowed to see or change these until the end of the game. Next, 3 ‘face up cards’ are placed on top. Finally, each player is dealt 3 cards to form their hand. If you wish, you can switch cards from your ‘hand’ with your ‘face up cards’.”;
Whoever has a 3 or the next lowest card starts the game.
Each turn you must discard a card (or two or more cards of the same) greater than or equal to the one at the top of the pick up pile, then draw cards from the deck so you have at least 3 cards in your hand (unless the deck has run out of cards or you already have 3 or more cards in you hand).
2’s and 10’s are wild cards. 2’s resets the pile and 10’s clear the pile. 4 of a kind, like a 10, clears the pile.
If don’t have a card that is greater than or equal to the card on top of the pile or a wild card, you must pick up the entire pile.
When there are no more cards in your hand, and the deck is empty, proceed to play your face up cards. Once all of the face up cards have been played, play the face down cards.
If you are the first to get rid of all your cards you win.
Palace is sometimes also known as Shithead, Shed, Karma or “OG”
