Gone Caving!  A Card Game of Exploration and Discovery
Gone Caving! is a card game for 2-6 people in which players of all ages explore a cave. Earn points for discovering passages, observing animals, and finding incredible geological formations. Overcome challenges by squeezing through tight passages or being prepared for an impending emergency. A hand of the game plays quickly, but the game is best played for several rounds. Proceeds of the sale of the game go directly to the NSS Cave Acquisition Fund.

Description of Game Play
Draw cards to find a cave entrance, explore cave passages, overcome challenges, and exit the cave safely. Score points by tallying the lengths of cave passage explored; get bonus points for specializing in one or more areas of cave research such as geology, biology, or cartography. On each turn, a player draws a card and plays or discards a card. They may play a card in their own play area to gain points or skills or to resolve a challenge or play a challenge in another player's area or discard a card with no effect.

Each player must play a "cave entrance" card in order to begin exploring cave passages. The round ends when anyone plays a "cave exit" card. A round might typically take 5-10 minutes to play. Usually a game will be played over the course of many rounds.

Passage that has been played in a player's area is worth victory points equal to the length of passage in meters (25m, 50m, etc.) Passage cards held in a player's had at the end of a round are deducted from their score. If the player has a scientist card in their play area, passages associated with the relevant science score double points; for example, a 25m biology passage is worth 50 victory points when explored by a player with the biologist card.
