Mount profitable expeditions to five different lost cities in this exceptional two-player card game from Reiner Knizia
- Players: 2
- Play Time: 30 mins
- Ages: 10+
For the daring and adventurous, there are many lost cities to explore perhaps in the Himalayas, the ever-shifting sands of the desert, the Brazilian rain forest, atop ancient volcanoes or deep down in Neptunes Realm.
Play is both simple and agonising. The cards are ranked 2-10 in five colours, one for each city to explore. Each turn you play a card to an expedition...but you can only play higher then the last played, never lower.
Hold cards too long waiting for early ones and you'll not have time to finish the expedition, discard low cards you can no longer use...and they might be just the ones your opponent needs!
With only limited resources players must choose which expeditions to begin as every one costs money (in the form of victory points), successful or not! Those with high confidence may want to up the stakes with investment cards: increasing the rewards for success, but risking more should the expedition fail.
