What appealed to you about it? If the art, there's a game about fruit that also has some beautiful illustrations. If the heavy card-counting/screwage, I'm not sure.

You can play Arboretum with the cards from Linko! which is much easier to find.

Not as pretty though

They say Arboretum is similar to Lost Cities and it has a spacial element. You may wish to consider Keltis: Neue Wege, Neue Ziele as it is also similar to Lost Cities and has a spacial element. That said, it's a much bigger package and more expensive as well. I actually preferred the aforementioned Keltis expansion (I think included with the base game these days).

There are a bunch of copies on the Marketplace. If nobody will ship it to the UK, message me and I'll ship it to you.

Edit: I went and looked and there's actually someone on the Marketplace in the UK.

Lighter and how scoring is done is done in reverse so you score your hand based on your tableau.

Just wanted to +1 this. I have both and did a comparison review in the ZP forums if you wanted to see how they stack up against each other.
