I've played Uncharted about six times now, and the more I play it the more I like it. The components are very good and the gameplay in my opinion is excellent. You need some experience playing {about 3 games} to start getting the most out of it, but once you've learned how the many different cards work and the different stratagies there are available, the game really starts to shine. If you like adventure games in a card game format, this game should not be missed.

This game deserves more love / attention. Its fast, intelligent, thematic and fun. Its also cheap. The game that it reminds me of in terms of feel is Core Worlds... Except that Core Worlds takes more time, requires more knowledge of the cards and is more AP-prone. That may make it deeper but I think that Uncharted is the better game overall.

A unique mix of Japanese simplicity, Bandai ugly design, Euro options and score chasing, and American thrills. Absolutely worth picking up.

I struck Mayan gold!
Found this last holiday season at Ross for 5 bux!
So glad i picked it up!
Surprised at how low a rating it is here.(almost didnt grab but for a fiver i had too)

This is a fabulous card game with many different mechanics going on at once so you are mostly always engaged. Turns play well and a little strategy is involved so your not just playing cards; even little tweaks like passing early bonuses and character abilities help this game stay golden!
Good theme(even if u dont know the video game),over all great build and components. There's even PvP interactions to make it more personal and everything just works really well together!

This is still top dog in my collection, some more hardcore people might think thats saying too much , but it just works-period. Plus its great intro for newcomers and as much fun for experienced players.
Played only about 10 times but can see myself playing this for years to come.

Three plays in, and it all really works! The theme, the card play, the mechanics, the player interaction (co-op and backstab). It is without a doubt underrated here on BGG. Give it a try if you get a chance.

Got a chance to play this at GenCon 2012. I really liked it, and may just have to pick it up. Light to Medium weight game, with a very good theme that is well implemented, interactive, doesn't overstay it's welcome, and most importantly is FUN!

Won at Gencon in a win a game event.

Was a lot of fun and even my wife liked it.

Initial Rating 7.5 for base beginner game.

Came with two promo cards.

With some plays of the advanced game I like it even better. It is an interesting game reminding me of Race for the Galaxy but with a stronger theme. Some randomness but that is what makes the theme strong for me, some games you just randomly die because you are unable to draw a blue card or maybe you can't get a defensive card out to save yourself.

Advanced game raised my rating to 8.0.

I was surprised by what a great game this is. It seems to be a very solid design. It reminds me a lot of core worlds, but more streamlined and faster paced. I like core worlds a lot, but I might like this better. I can't wait to try it again.

Tentative rating; played once.
No exploration, mostly just a game played with cards. A series of cards are turned up and players take turns acting against these cards (finding treasure \ defeating enemies), gaining points while doing this. However, despite the thematic feel, whar you're doing is much planning on when to do your stuff and when to wait and see, in order to time your actions better. It played fast and I had a laugh really, but I missed a more bordgamey aspect. Don't know if it had been better with pawns on a board though. Maybe not.

Fun and fast. Mechanics are pretty simple and go well with the theme. The gotcha elements between players is antithetical to the video version, but it works within the context of the boardgame.

Fun game and it's cheap. Believe it or not a Bandi game that doesn't suck. Press your luck, deck building, treasure grab.

I bought this in my uncharted phase, which, obviously, was a very confusing time in my life. UC2, then golden abyss, then the psvita card game that I get bonuses from GA in, then UC3, and then whatever this was. But fun! How strange and unexpected that this should continue to get played, but how wonderful.

An overlooked game in the same vein as Race for the Galaxy. It's extremely abstract, but I enjoy it quite a bit. I haven't even touched the alternate modes, because the competitive mode has gotten quite a bit of mileage for me.

There are a couple of ambiguities in the rules, but not enough to break the game. I do think it's going to be a little unforgiving for new players, as a deck randomly seeded with a lot of enemies is usually going to wipe everyone out except for maybe the most experienced players. That being said, I think this game is tremendously underrated. Anyone who enjoys interactive tableau-building games should go out of their way to check this one out.

Really cool card play game. The kind of game one can use to introduce people to modern card games without using heavy or collectible ones.

I still cannot believe how good this game is. I saw it when it first came out and wrote it off immediately because of it being based on a video game series, even though it's one of my favorite series of video games. I had the opportunity to play it and loved it. Lots of action, not much downtime. I ordered a copy that same night.

For a boardgame based on an action videogame, this one is really good. The mechanics feel remarkably tight and polished, and the extra game modes add a lot of longevity to the box.

Purchased for $15 at a local game store. Remarkably entertaining. There are a lot of interesting decisions to make during the game.

My expectations weren't that high, since it was a licensed game. I was pleasantly surprised.

Update: After playing a few more times, moved from a 7 to an 8. I had been playing by the wrong rules...and the correct rules alleviated one of the major problems I was having with the game. I like this one a lot.

Great game that is easy to teach and quick to play. More tactically orientated but with a hint of strategy to give it some bite. The ability to directly and indirectly attack other players, albeit only slightly, ultimately makes this shine.

This is easily worth the bargain £12 I paid for it and is my new go-to game if I want something that plays up to four in under an hour,

I'm not going to lie, I am not a huge fan of the video game series, and I don't like that they used so much of the art directly from the game graphics (though the card backs and board are fine). However, this is a surprisingly solid tableau building card game which does capture the spirit of adventure those games attempted to return us all to... Probably one of the better games out there for the rabid Indiana Jones/pulp adventure fan, and a successful video game adaptation for sure. And for around $10, it's a steal, especially with the 3-4 player Deathmatch and 1-4 player Survival modes to give it legs.
