The research teams are outfitted and ready to embark on their adventures to find five forgotten cities. Who will lead the way to fantastic discoveries?

Each player guides a team of explorers on up to five expeditions. To advance along an expedition path, a card in the path's colour must be played for each step forward. The card must be of equal or greater value to the player's card previously played on that path.
After playing or discarding a card, the player draws a new card. Skilled team leaders assess when to play, hold, or discard their cards to move their own teams forward while at the same time preventing their opponent teams from getting ahead.

Points are awarded based on how far the explorers make it along their paths. Each step earns more points than the one before it, and the first three steps earn negative points. Along the way, players can increase points by finding artefacts, victory points, and shortcuts forward. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins!

User Ratings & Reviews

  • It's a fine game but there's nothing special that stands out.
  • Well played game. Box has shelf wear, but cards are sleeved and other components are in great condition. Also includes Keltis board which can be played with all of the components.
  • Knizia does it again. Lost Cities was great, and this is better--not only because it supports more players, but also just because it's better. There's a race element, some set collection, less math, less luck, and more ability to control the endgame. And you can play the (inferior) card game with it, too!
  • Simply a much, much longer version of Lost Cities -- but for more than two players. I'm not sure how I feel about that.
