Product Description

Medina is an old Islamic city in northern Africa with interconnected buildings, colorful domes, narrow streets, and a mighty city wall.

The year is 1822. After years of being tortured by sun, wind and sand, Medina, the great city set at the foot of the Atlas Mountains, looks a bit shabby and rundown and needs to be rebuilt. As the players work together to rebuild the majestic palaces and the crumbling city wall, the cobbled streets once again carry the running feet of small children as their elders stroll through the markets filled with exotic goods from all over the world. Thus, life returns slowly to the old city as it again becomes the great city of Medina.

Medina -- a treat for all! The beautiful components and simple rules belie the interesting strategies the game provides. Players will want to play Medina over and over for the joy of participating in the rebuilding of this beautiful city and for the challenges the game's strategies provide.
