Product Description

In DDD Verlag's first big game, a Thurn & Taxis-sized box with the English title of "Silk Road," players move three caravans over the famous trails of the Silk Road that connected China to the Mediterranean Sea. Players want to expand their inventory and make the most profits in markets, but on the long road they'll face dust storms, lurking thieves and the non-lurking but equally unpleasant tax collector. Once a caravan has reached its destination, one player will be rewarded with jewels. Who will have the most precious gem collection at game's end?
