Description Edit | History

From the Mayfair Catalog:

Heart of Africa is a meaty trading game where the players each lead a trading company which tries to make profits in Africa.

Although Africa had been circumnavigated by the start of the 19th century, the continent remained largely undiscovered. One of the great mysteries was the source of the Nile, and explorers like Burton, Speke, Baker and Livingstone became immortal in their attempts to find it.

6 Reworked Dutch translation of the rules and player aid
This is reworked translation of the original German rules into Dutch, incorporating as much of the official FAQ---as long as it was available---as possible, as well as some rules questions posed to the author of this game. The document is structured like the original (oh horror) but makes an effort in pointing out where the rules and game materials are unclear or just plain wrong. This is version 1.0 of the document.
