Kashgar: Merchants of the Silk Road
|Players||For Ages||Play Time|
Designed by Gerhard Hecht
In Kashgar, players trade different spices that are coming over the silk road from Asia to Europe. Each player has control over three caravans. In the beginning, each caravan consists of three cards that are spread out vertically so that the top part of each card is visible; each card stands for a caravan member with different abilities. On his turn, a player performs only one action, choosing one of the cards on top of the three caravans and executing one action shown on that card. Then the card is put at the back of its caravan. To use the same caravan member again, a player must first use all the other cards on top of that caravan row. The core mechanism of Kashgar could be called “open deck-building”. The game plays quickly with little downtime. Simple, yet so much fun and lots of strategies to explore.
