Subtitled "Trade and Intrigue at the Top of the World."
This is another of Blue Panther's limited edition games made of wood. The only thing not made of wood in this game are the rules. Beautiful production values and sure to be the best smelling game in any collection.
Players compete to establish trade routes across Nepal via tile placement. This will remind many players of tile placement train games. If the trade to an area gets too heavy, there's a population explosion that could lead to players' losing previously placed tiles until the population shrinks to a sustainable level.
Once the board starts filling up with cubes it is nearly impossible to see what the population limit is within each province. Use this mini map to check the population without moving anything on the board.
