The primary goal of Treasure Madness is to discover, collect, and donate the various sets of treasures in the game. When Treasure Madness began, there were 63 sets of treasures to be found. Soon it was discovered that a 64th set, the "Aztec Gods III" set, had two items that could be found when buying crates.
The treasures are each grouped into sets of five. For a complete list of sets and what they contain, see List of Sets.
Besides digging, treasures can also be collected through the purchase of crates. In order to buy crates, the player must use Museum Dollars (MU$). One crate costs 5MU$ and three crates cost 9MU$.
