Making Connections in This Belongs in a Museum
Some of the tiles have terrain segments representing rivers and mountains. Separate sections of the same color that can be traced back to each other through rivers and mountains are considered connected to each other and count as part of your network.
In the image below, the green sections are connected by a mountain and the blue sections are connected by a river.
Each archeologist has their color represented on two tiles featuring artifacts, if an artifact space with your color background is connected to your network, you receive three (3) points for that space instead of the one (1) point you receive for each of the temple spaces.
With the myriad of ways to make connections, this game truly never plays the same way twice and you have many strategies at your disposal to maximize your score.
