Who will discover the ancient civilizations

Two explorers embark on research journeys to remote corners of the world: the Himalayan mountains, the Central American rainforest, the Egyptian desert, a mysterious volcano, and the bottom of the sea. As the cards are played, the expedition routes take shape and the explorers earn points. The most daring adventurers make bets on the success of their expeditions. The explorer with the highest score after three round of expeditions wins. The rules of the game are simple but beware: The lost cities hold many unseen mysteries!

Reviews Review Game
By SplendorFan From Burton in
Despite this not being in stock here or indeed anywhere(!) I managed to source a copy from Germany (there is no text on the cards, plus watch Youtube videos for instructions!). There is a reason why this game is widely considered to be the best 2 player game around, it is brilliant. So easy to learn and play, yet some very hard decisions to make sometimes! You are basically trying to get the most cards in a set and lay them down so that you score more points than your opponent. Investment cards or 'handshake' cards can be laid down first in order to double, triple or quadruple your gains or losses for an expedition. I play this with my wife, and along with Splendor this is our favourite game! Simply put - find a copy and buy it!

I love and loathe this game equally. Love it because it is easy to learn and easy to play, has a small box, board and layout so great for taking out or away but loathe it because. . . . . well, frankly - I'm rubbish at it! Doesn't stop me playing it though!

I love the way that this game plays it makes you make decisions and punishes you if you make the wrong one.

It is a typical Reiner Knizia game with lots of mathmatics behind the scoring and the way that it works. Having said that you do not have to be good at maths to be good at this game.

As anyone that knows me will tell you I am not a big fan of Reiner games but this one I do enjoy and would recommend as a very good two player game.

By Loughborough Gamer From Leics in UK
A really great game that's very easy to play. Perfect for playing with your partner when there's nothing on tv. It's light and quick and engages your brain, but not too much. Just right when you want a quickish game that is fun and makes you think, but not too much. You can play one hand in about 10 mins and three (for a rubber) in less than half an hour. It's also good if you've played a longer game and want something shorter to finish off with. The rules are easily grasped and it's simple to play, but there is room for strategy. The more you play it, the more you think of clever methods of maximising your score. Aswell as all of that, the graphics are superb and the cards are junky and made to last. Recommended for everyone, but perhaps especially those who aren't hard-core gamers.
