Around the time of the Han Dynasty, from 200 B.C. to around 8 A.D., an overland trade route from the Mediterranean Sea to China developed called the Silk Road. This 4,000 mile (6,000 KM) route ran from the Mediterranean Sea to the early Chinese capital of Chang'an. Not only were goods traded from various European ports to China and the cities in between, but this route played a major role in the diffusion of Buddhism into China. Silk Road is a strategy game for 3-6 daring adventurers who trade, buy, and sell along this historic trading route from Chang'an in the East to Antioch in the West. Players bid for control of the caravan leader to determine which cities to visit, where players will choose the actions they wish to perform: i.e. buy, sell and trade goods such as jewels, dried fruit, silk, etc. Players will also be able to play in reverse, starting in the West and moving East. Contents: 75 wooden goods cubes, 45 wooden coin disks, 5 wooden action disks, 2 wooden caravan pawns, 90 action tiles, 1 22" x 9" gameboard, 6 screens, cloth bag, 4 sets of rules (English, German, French, Dutch).
