#25: Lost Cities

Beautiful production (over-sized cards with thematic art, the discard board) elevate this simple abstract card game into a classic. Lost Cities is one of the truly great "significant other" games... and, of course, another entry on The One Hundred for the insanely prolific Reiner Knizia.

Dave Arnott: "It's rather luck-prone, which is why I will only play one "game" of multiple hands... but having not played it in a while, I'd forgotten how addictive and, yes... wild the game can be. I don't think it's actually a great game, but it's definitely a fun one."

Susan Rozmiarek: "A simple game that I want to play over and over."
