Your two Expedition Leaders are trusted with the difficult task of analyzing these research’s findings to find the entrance to the lost world. The more clues your team finds, the closer to the secret entrance you get…
Goal of the game
To win the game, you must be the first to collect the 4 clues necessary to locate the entrance to the lost world. You can get these clues, represented by magnifying glasses, by following the trails of the two explorers. But how can you move forward on the tracks? By completing Missions.
Each player’s turn is divided in two phases:
- Firstly, send your Expedition Members either on the Equipment areas in order to pick tokens (on Vehicle or Mission side) either on the Locations of the World Map using your Vehicle tokens.
- Secondly, complete your Missions, retrieve your Expedition Members and move forward on the Explorers tracks. At the fifth space, you will be able to get the first clue leading to the entrance to the lost world… You will need four of them to find it!
Complete the Mission : send two Members of expedition on the World Map, one on the African Mask – you need 2 Car tokens and 1 Boat token – and one on the Chichén Itzá – you need 2 Boat tokens. Then retrieve one of your Expedition Members. Two Expedition Members were needed to complete this mission, so you can move your Expedition Leader forward two spaces on the blue track.
Send some Expedition Members to collect vehicles and mission orders and others around the world to achieve them while your two Expedition Leaders, each time they succeed a mission, piece together the clues that will lead to the secret entrance…
