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 others. 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 Citiesis a card game in the Kosmos two-player series. The game consists of a single deck of cards of rank 2–10 in 5 different colors with 3 special “handshakes” (“HS” in scoring examples below) in each suit. There is also a board which functions only to hold and organize discarded cards and is largely superfluous. Games last around 15 minutes. This is generally considered a good “couples” game and is often recommended for people with non-gamer partners.
