On a distant island in the unknown vastness of the ocean, explorers have found traces of a long-gone civilisation. Competing explorers have now been tasked with exploring the island: Venture into the depths of the jungle, find ancient artefacts and face the fearsome guardians of the ruins!
In The Lost Ruins of Arnak, you as the player guide your expeditionary troops against each other to a newly discovered island.In a unique combination of deck building, worker placement and resource management, each expedition tries to be the first to uncover and use the secrets of the lost island to its own advantage.The decks of the individual players remain quite small throughout the game, so the inclusion of the right cards in the deck needs to be carefully considered. In addition to familiar deck-building effects, playing cards in The Lost Ruins of Arnak can also be used to place workers. New worker actions themselves become available as players explore the island. Chance plays only a minor role due to the abundance of tactical possibilities offered on the game board. Since actions also require the use of resources instead of workers, building a solid resource base is also crucial to one's success. However, each player can only perform one action per round, which means that the rounds themselves are short, but each decision needs to be well thought out.
Due to the large number of available actions, artefacts and equipment cards, the challenges are different in every game, which always invites the player to explore new strategies in this multiplayer title of the extra class.
