Daring adventure for two. For the daring and adventurous, there are many lost cities to find. The search can take you to the Himalayas, the Brazilian rain forest, the ever-shifting sands of the desert, ancient volcanoes and to Neptune's realm. Of course, you must choose which expeditions to begin and which to leave to the other player. You may have the opportunity to increase your investment in the search, increasing the rewards for success, but risking more should you fail. The player who finds the right balance will have successful expeditions and win the game. Lost Cities is a challenging card game with simple rules and enormous depth. (from the back of the box)
