The Lost Expedition was kindly provided by Osprey Games for free. We thank them for giving us this game which led to this comic! For more information on how we deal with gifted games, please see our FAQ!

This comic is a little meta, being about us playing The Lost Expedition… visualized in The Lost Expedition-cards! 😉

It’s a tricky co-operative game in which players try to reach the lost city with a team of three researchers: the navigator, the herbalist, and the explorer. We’ve played it a few times so far and it’s definitely one that we’re going to keep in our game collection. For us, it has replaced the solo game Friday. The Lost Expedition has a solo-mode as well and we just enjoy this game more (and the art is so pretty!). Most of the time you think you are doing quite well and then it spirals down into disaster. The times we won the game, it was because we chose to sacrifice people and let just one of the researchers make a sprint to the lost city. I’d love to make it with all the entire team one day. 😉

There also is a competitive mode in the game in which two teams of researchers try to reach the city first. I prefer the co-op mode, but I might need to give the competitive mode a second chance.

I’ve been really busy with all kinds of things that are Semi Co-op related which I can’t show you… yet! Luckily, times flies and in the coming weeks, we can finally share some of them and I’m really excited about it. 😀

What’s your favorite jungle themed game?

I got “Robinson Cruse” for Christmas from my sisters. We tried to set it up but after two hours we needed the table for dinner and we had to put the game back in the box.

There is also a promising Kickstarter Game called “Palm Island”. It’s a pocket game you can take basically everywhere you like, but there seems to be some depth to it. You need to spend resourses to rotate or flip the cards in your hand. When adjusted correctly the cards gain you additional resourses or victory points. Solo, coop and competetive play is possible.

The 2017-Spiel-des-Jahres-Nominee El Dorado also looks quite nice.
