In every village you enter, you find inhabited ruins. You hide in them when you need shelter. You search them for food, for clothing, for equipment. You make business there and you rest. Ruins are your whole life. Ruins contains forty new cards — including new Leaders, Locations and Contact cards — for use with either 51st State or The New Era (or both). The Ruins expansion introduces new abilities for cards, including the possibility of recovering discarded cards. New locations not only provide storage for resources, but they provide other ones, too.
