Home made. Hand painted. Szebb, mint az eredeti 8). Nem tudom milyen a gyári, de a mi plüss szőnyegeinket még fogni is kellemes, nem hogy játszani vele. A tervezés és a festés sokáig tartott, de legalább színes és változatos lett a tábla, a figura lépése így teljesen egyértelmű. A játékkal egyébként minden korosztály szívesen játszik. Mi 15 szőnyeggel játszunk négy főnél is (mivel minden színből van annyi..), így kicsit több pénzt lehet kisajtolni egymásból. A kocka eredményezhet meglepetéseket, de nem ezen múlik a játék. Egyik kedvencem (sokat is bíbelődtem vele), és a játékélmény is mindenkinél pozitív. A bolti kb. 7 rugó kicsit sok érte.

Marrakech is probably the best roll and move game I've ever played. As with most roll and move, there is a good amount of luck however, there is a high amount of strategy, both in turning the merchant and placing the carpets. Each of these can set you up for success, even if a die roll is involved. Trying to set yourself up to not have to step on any opponent rugs and being able to cover up their rugs as well is strategic and enjoyable. This an excellent one and something I'd love to play over and over again.

As a game I consider this to be a perfect design. The mechanism of weaving carpets could only be achieved by using actual cloth, so the connection between theme and mechanism is seamless (!). The use of an 'averaging' dice enables you to easily assess the odds of how risky a particular move may be. You can also 'steer' your opponent by how you place your carpet.
The only down point is that Zoch had the Suleika version produced in China, which means that the card used in the box and board is not up to German quality - though the other components are excellent (I don't know where the Gigamic version was produced).

I normally don't care about components, but I really like the carpets. This is a game my wife really enjoys, and was thrilled I got it for her as a wedding gift, so sentimentality bumps it up in my rankings a bit.

I LOVE this game. It plays quick and looks great. The little carpets are made from fabric and work really well, for the games purpose. Basically an area majority, abstract game, but there's just something about his game that is a lot of fun. I can play this one over and over again and have a blast, as it plays quick.

Basically you roll a die to move a pawn, of which you can rotate on turn, to change his direction. Move the pawn. If you land on an empty space or your own carpet. You're fine. Land on someone elses carpet and you pay them for each section of their carpet, that's adjacent to another. Then you lay one of your carpet adjacent to the pawn. Trying to cover up your opponents carpets and connect more of yours. Keep doing this until everyone plays all their carpets and then you get points for your money leftover and for each section of your carpet, that are still showing on the board. Whoever has the most points then wins.

A lot more fun than it sounds. Not quite sure why, but it's just a great little fun game. I picked this up for 10 bucks new. Definitely worth it, if not even double that price or more. Check it out. I'd definitely recommend this, for a quick filler, family game.

Many thanks, to my good friend Matt, for picking this up for me.

A unique little game that should be added to the list of great gateway games. For me and mine, this has been the biggest hit since Cartagena. Heavily luck-based, especially once everyone fully grasps the strategy (which doesn't go very deep), but definitely a game that induces a lot of groans, laughs and trash talk.

Suleika version.

Worked great with the kids (and will probably work well with adults too). Easy to teach and easy to play. There are some tactics involved but it's mostly a roll the die and have fun game. Plays quickly which is a plus when it comes to games like this.

Nice carpets!

Update: Great game with grown-ups too. Upped the score.

Played 15-20 times.
Update: This is a recent hit with our 4-yo. We play by the rules and he wins about half of our games. I guess that proves that the game is completely random :-)

A lovely little game. Sure, the die rolls are important, but risk management is the key. I often find myself thinking "I can´t afford to pay 7 coins now, which will happen if I roll a 4 on that path. Thus, I choose this other path although the risk of having to pay anything between 1 and 3 is higher there."
Also, I think you can get too greedy here. If you have a big carpet area many players will rather choose a "cheaper" path and avoid your area at all cost, so you get no money at all.
Great components, and playing time is just right.

I like the fun factor of this light, little textiles game. I get a kick out of everyone laying down magic carpets in hopes others will land on them. It's original, innovative and a quirky filler game involving carpets. The more "real estate" you have established, the higher the chances of getting paid. And, if they are all adjacent or linked together then the higher the payout will be. Very cute.

The theme is refreshing and the little rug pieces are really cool. It's also more aggressive than your usual family fare, which is fun. I can see how some would have a problem with the die rolls, but for how quick the game is, it doesn't really matter. It is so pleasurable to see an opponent hit one of your huge masses of rugs, you can't know until you experience it yourself.

I'll confess: I have no idea why I like this game so much. Okay, I am a huge fan of carpets, so the little baby carpets help a lot, but I also enjoy the game play. There's a bit of push your luck in the decision of which way to point the guy and some tactical thinking when deciding whether to try to build a single big expanse of carpet (which will be a target for opponents) or several smaller areas.

A surprise hit for me, a lot to enjoy here. I really liked the physical form the game takes as the carpets build up. It does seem like a carpet shop in the Souk. I liked the simple movement of the Seller, and the money and dice were nicely made too. The game was very quick, with simple decisions, but not without tension as you can be forced into paying if you're not careful. The rules fit onto one page, but only by making the font very small. But it's a simple game with a strong take-that element.

This is a fantastic family game! The components are great. The cloth rugs are perfect for this game. It seems like the perfect amount of luck for a family game. Choices for which way to make the guy go are pretty easy (which again is good for a family game), but where to place your rugs is not always as obvious. Turns go quickly, so the game has a nice brisk pace to it. This is a very fun, light game.
