Karawane/The Caravan Board Game Review

Karawane/The Caravan Board Game Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 08, 2009
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

The winner of the game is the person who is best able to bring the most camels safely to the oasis.

For over 1,000 years traders traversed the mountains, deserts and seas between the great civilization centers of Rome, China and India. Roman gold coins have been found in India and China and Chinese silk in the pyramids of Egypt. In the 19th century, historian Ferdinand von Richthofen made up the term Silk Road to describe the long, narrow land route between East and West, but there were also the Spice Route, the Incense Route and many others. On these routes grew not only trade, but the passing of technology, art and culture between different peoples – the Silk Road has been called the Internet of its day. Here is one game - Karawane/The Caravan by Haba that will give you a glimpse into history and a chance to relive some of the sense of wonder and adventure found along the Silk Road.

Great Game

The idea of the game is this: a caravan moves slowly through the desert. The heat, dunes and mirages (where you think you see an oasis of water but it’s actually just an illusion created by heat waves on sand) all work to slow you and your camels’ progress. On top of that, sudden sandstorms come up, swirling everything around and wreaking havoc on your vision! The winner of the game is the person who is best able to bring the most camels safely to the oasis.
