Product Description

Not to be confused with Sid Sackson's Bazaar, Basari is played with dice on a traditional (Monopoly-type) board. As play moves around the board, players earn points in three different ways: You can accept the printed Victory Point, take the Jewels allotted to the space or--if you don't find the offers generous enough--throw the dice again to get first pick when the circle has been completed. The choices are made with cards--if two players have the same plans, the bargaining begins.
