This product is subject to specific safety warnings
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 artifacts, victory points, and shortcuts forward. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins!
WARNING: Not suitable for children under 3 years. Choking hazard - small parts may be swallowed.See all Product description

Lost cities can be explained to a group in about 5 minutes and it quickly sucks you in to its world. You begin trying to strategize the way to net the optimal amount of reward points while minimizing the aid that you provide to the other players. Sure, there is an element of luck involved in the cards that you draw, but that makes it all the more exciting.
There is even an option to play a shortened version of the game which is great for an introductory play-through. The pieces are quality and so is the huge gameboard. No doubt, there is an immediate feeling of excitement as you begin to realize the possibilites for achieving victory. There are both risks and rewards.
In summary: each of the players are trying to discover the paths to five lost cities. Along the way, you will discover relics and risk losing points. You will send out your explorers as well as the double point value Researcher. Your movement is guided not by dice, but by playing colored cards in a series of turns. But cards can only be played by following a simple rule - the value of the card must be equal or greater to the previous played card. As you might surmise, this presents some planning and risk-taking. After 5 explorers cross bridges, the game (or round) ends and points are tallied.
Sound simple? It is and it isn't. If you like games and want something a little on the lighter side as far as rules go, but heavy on fun and excitement, this is a good choice!
