Time to travel once again to distant locations, but inÊLost Cities: RivalsÊyou might find yourself running short of cash to take the trips you want! Lost Cities: RivalsÊfeatures gameplay familiar from other titles in theÊLost CitiesÊseries. Players will collect colored expedition cards and place them in ascending order in personal expeditions, possibly placing wager cards before beginning an expedition in order to increase its value. The primary difference in this title compared to others is that you must win auctions in order to place cards in your expeditions. The card deck consists of (in each of the five colors) three wager cards, two copies of cards numbered 2-5, and one copy of cards numbered 6-10; shuffle this deck, then divide it into four piles, keeping only one pile in front of players for now. From a separate deck, each player is given two differently colored wager cards at the start of play. A bank of 36 coins is divided equally among the players.
