The lost cities hold many unseen mysteries!

KOSMOS games build social skills, stimulate logical and strategic thinking, promote visual-spatial and math skills, cultivate physical coordination and manual dexterity, encourage family time, and inspire fair-mindedness, confidence, and honorable attitudes. German engineered and beautifully made, these games become enduring family favorites and game night classics. For all these reasons, Kosmos games have earned worldwide acclaim.

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 rounds of expeditions wins. The rules of the game are simple, but beware: The lost cities hold many unseen mysteries!

Reiner Knizia, born in 1957, lives in Windsor, Great Britain. He holds a PhD in Mathematics and has published numerous games in Germany and abroad. Among his greatest achievements are the German awards 'Deutscher Spiele Preis' (obtained in 1993 and 1998) and 'Spiel des Jahres 2008' (the latter for 'Keltis,' a game based on 'Lost Cities'). Reiner Knizia specializes in games whose simple rules give players much freedom of choice.

45 Expedition cards (values indicated on the cards: 2-10, in five colors).

The game board depicts five routes upon which players strive to form expeditions throughout the course of the game. The routes lead to remote and mysterious corners around the world: the Himalayan mountains, the Central American rainforest, the Egyptian desert, a mysterious volcano, and the bottom of the sea.

Each player starts with 8 cards distributed at random. The remaining cards are placed in a draw pile beside the board. During each turn, a player must either place a card on one of his or her expedition columns, or discard a card face up on the board. Discarding a card allows the other player to snatch it up on his or her next turn!

Card tactics are key to winning this strategy game for two players! Be ready to take chances and test your luck!

The rules of the game are very simple, but don't get the wrong impression! There is much more to Lost Cities than it might seem at first glance.

The full-color illustrated manual provides a detailed explanation of how to score the game, including hints on when you should or shouldn't use a wager card.

Fans looking for a 4-player version will also enjoy the board game version of Lost Cities.
