In Lewis & Clark: The Expedition, players assume the role of famous explorers. They are attempting to follow in the steps of the original historical Corps of Discovery who made the well known trip on the Mississippi river. Players have to make difficult choices involving which resources to invest in, how to manage their expedition crew, and carefully choosing how to spend their time. A board game with exquisite art and wonderful mechanics, Lewis & Clark the expedition is a complex and satisfying game.

Difficulty

Lewis & Clark is designed for 1-5 players, but it is interesting because it offers a one player experience. Although while a fun past time solo, the game’s many mechanics are best enjoyed with more players.

This is not a simple game. While the game can be learned and taught in the better part of 15 minutes, it really requires several play-throughs to understand how to fully exploit the games interesting dynamics. Have your friends prepared to invest some time to get past the game’s somewhat challenging learning curve. Once learned the re-playability options within the game makes it all very worthwhile and fun.

Play Time: 45+ minutes

A keen rule of thumb is ~30 minutes per player. Since this game can make room for up to 5 players, it can become quite long. Be prepared to spend a little extra time for your first round with players new to the game.

This game’s art is a shining example of what is truly possible in the board game medium. The cards of the game include a diverse cast of historical explorers and Indians with different strengths. The colors and artwork make strategy planning exciting as you embark on your very own expedition.

Play Lewis & Clark with ‘This Guy’ – the board game connoisseur and aficionado. This game is in-depth and at times dense, so it is best enjoyed by those who love a new challenge and strategic planning. People who enjoy Monopoly will love this game! Also, this game will be best after dinner. I don’t recommend drinking. You want to be ready to accept the challenge and think up new strategies to beat your fellow opponents!
