I gave the game a try today and found it to be longer than it seemed. It was interesting, with a lot of hand management. Figure cards were hard to come by, so I'm not sure it's very wise spending them with your own pieces. It's hard enough to eliminate the opposition with the available figure cards...
I like that the game's rules are simple and it plays very fast. Will play it more over the coming days...

To follow up, we had a chance to play a quick round over "lunch"
today, (more like a late breakfast I suppose). We both liked it a lot,
("I would have liked it a lot more if I had won" were my wife's exact
words), and we'll definitely play it again.
And Zark City definitely does make a beautiful "landscape" out of Lost
Cities cards. I would definitely miss some of that charm if playing
with a deck of playing cards. (I'm not familiar enough with any tarot
deck to know if it would give a similar feel or not.)
