Legendary explorer Percy Fawcett marched deep into the Amazon in search of El Dorado. He was never seen again. Your team is following in his footsteps, but in searching for riches you must be careful not to lose the greatest treasure of all - your life.

Make the best of your food, your ammunition and your health, as you plunge deep into the jungle. Choose your path carefully to ensure you're ready for the pitfalls which may occur. Play solo or co-operatively to survive the expedition, or play head-to-head to see which group can reach the lost city first.

From award-winning designer Peer Sylvester and acclaimed comic artist Garen Ewing, The Lost Expedition is a game of hard choices on the road to El Dorado.

Review quote

"Definitely check this one out! Recipient of The Dice Tower Seal of Approval." - Zee Garcia, The Dice Tower

"[The Lost Expedition] blends compelling challenge with beautiful components and a satisfactory narrative. It's one that's easy to pull off the shelf and fully engage. How often can you contract hook worms and fill your boot with nasty insects while sitting in the comfort of a beaten up leather sofa?" - Charlie Theel, Geek & Sundry

"Tricky and distinctive. I liked it." - Eric Summerer, The Dice Tower

". . . engaging and intriguing." - Dave Taylor, Go Fatherhood

"The Lost Expedition is definitely a keeper. It's a relaxing adventure tabletop game with a clever resource management mechanism. Solo gamers will probably love it, co-op fans will definitely like it, and its head-to-head mode is nothing to sneeze at, either!" - Ronny Alexander, Co-op Board Games

"This game is awesome. I really recommend [it] . . . You get such a different game experience from one single box." - Wurfel Reviews
