Product Description

Life pulsates on the floating markets of the Far East. The junks lie tightly together, loaded to the bursting point with exotic goods from all over the world. Merchants and their assistants move busily from ship to ship over narrow wooden planks, in order to buy for the markets of the city. Each of them wants the most lucrative transactions and therefore must be at the right junk at the right time. Loading crates, ensuring the supply of goods, and taking in money: all of these are important, but you have to make up your mind. Only one action may be taken each turn. Only the player who coordinates their actions most skillfully will become an outstanding merchant.

Despite the fact that there are many tricky decisions, this is really a simple game since the clearly structured rules allow a smooth start up. Whoever loads the most loot by the end will win this exciting game.

Dschunke is not Junke!
September 16, 2002

My group recently played Dschunke and we enjoyed it a lot. It has a mid-light feel to it, with ample room for a bit of role play, some psychological gaming and long term planning. The review above was right on target. We also tried a random start for the merchant-trainee(s) just to experiment a bit...this made for some variation in the overall play (we used a multi-sided die to determine the start positions of the merchant/trainee(s)).

Dschunke is a decent introductory German game to newcomers; it can be explained reasonably quickly to newcomers (about 15 min), plays just as the box describes, timewise, and is sufficiently fun and challenging for a replay.

While Dschunke might not be described as 'brilliant' it is certainly a decent addition to one's gameshelf. My only minor gripe is the teenie size Yuan notes - something a bit bigger would have been easier to handle - but the graphics and bits otherwise are fine.
