Designer Reiner Knizia
Lost Cities is a quick playing and easy to learn classic game from Reiner Knizia. Players take on the role of Expedition leaders and begin with a hand of expedition cards and wager cards. Cards must be played in ascending order or discarded to the shared board. Wager cards can be played at the start of a row to multiply its end score. Each row of expedition cards begun costs the player -20 points so playing cards adding to more than 20 is needed to keep from getting a negative total score.
