This is a very entertaining game for two people. It is nice an small for traveling, and is well designed. The cards and tokens are all nicely printed and durable card stock. The game itself is fun and involves much strategy, although there are some random elements (card draws,bonus token values). Every round seems different, as the starting conditions and evolving playing field can require altered strategies each time. Played three full games in a row with a friend and we were not bored at all - would have played more is we had time. The rounds go fast, also, so the game keeps moving. It has some quantitation involved, so it is goo for kids learning to add numbers from 1 - 10. Highly recommend it for adults and kids.

Sell fast for the big sale or wait to get the bonus. Get camels or get goods. These are some of the strategic decisions of this portable, fast, easy to learn and fun card game for two. The strategic paths to victory are limited just to five or six, but the thing is that they don't always work. Since your game depends on a combination of luck and the other's players play, no game is the same. The more I play this game the more I like it! The quality of the cards and the components is excellent and the art makes you engage in the game's theme. Recommended for any kind of players. I just wish they could come up with a 4 players version; it would be chaotic!

You take on the roles of greedy Indian merchants trying to outdo each other to become the Maharajah's personal trader. This is a light, simple to learn 2-player resource trading game that you can teach in five minutes and be done with in twenty. And yet the game is fantastically balanced and requires careful thought, planning, and strategy. Most games are just a few points apart. You can try it for free online at Board Game Arena. Once you try it, you'll be hooked. This will be a game you'll be playing for years, great for couples, and great for quick filler between other games (I also recommend Guillotine for that, which works for 2-5 players). The artwork, box, and components are all beautiful and durable. Best of all, the cards are pre-shuffled and the pogs are pre-punched and pre-sorted! Everything is ready to play right out of the box. Zero effort required. Nice!

I found some rules to increase the number of players to 3 or 4 over at Jaipur's page on Boardgame Geek.

For 3 Players: Deal out 4 cards, hand limit 6. Game ends with 4 coin colors depleted. No end for cards, just shuffle the discard pile when needed.

For 4 Players: Deal out 3 cards, hand limit 5. Game ends with only 1 coin colors remaining. No end for cards, just shuffle the discard pile when needed.

PS: Another two player foreign merchant game (this time with an African theme) that is worth checking out is Jambo.

Very fun little game for two players. I was looking for a quick two player game similar to Lost Cities and, while Jaipur uses widely different mechanisms and is not very similar at all, it is just as much fun. The use of camel cards and clever trading strategies gives it just enough of a skill factor to keep players thinking and the luck factor keeps it fresh.

It is fairly easy to learn and I've had good success introducing new gamers to it. Jaipur is the sort of game that typically has people asking for another round so they can experiment with different strategies. The numerous ways to play keep even old hands wanting to try a few more rounds.

The game is played in very quick rounds which keeps it flowing and allows it to end whenever a round finishes; we use this one a lot while waiting for the rest of our gaming group to arrive from work.

Another very nice feature of Jaipur is the ability to go outside the included rules and play with more than two players. We've had several fun three player games by dealing four cards per player and running the game until four of the goods piles are gone.

Overall, Jaipur is a great game with good replay value that plays fast and has some nice features. Also, the artwork on this game is really nice.

This is not a heavy game. Yes there is more luck then strategy but it's a Great Filler Game. A fun way to pass the time with kids while you wait at restaurant. Sometimes it's just fun to sit down with a game light game and talk while playing, adult or child or teen. It give you and excuse to get together and socialize.

It's a fun Game! My six year old loves it and so do my friends.

It easy to learn. We watched a YouTube video done by the "Watch It: Played" network on YouTube. Side Note: read the rules and watching a YouTube Video is a great way to see how the game is played.

It's about a 20-30 min game. We pull it out almost daily since we've gotten it and I'd rather play this light game then watch some of the brain numbing television out there. If we want a meatier game we also have several of those type of games as well.

It depends on who you are playing with and the situation on what type of game you play. I think that this game would be a great addition to anyone's game collection, especially those with families.

It's different then most of the games sold at Walmart or Target or Toys R Us and therefore for makes a great gift for families who like games and the casual gamer.

Fun family trading game. No monsters, dungeons, aliens, invasions, kill or be killed scenarios for a change Card and tokens are good quality as well as the box with its pink plastic inlay. Artwork is colorful and light. Game instructions are in multiple languages. (If however, you sleeve the cards you'll have to modify the inlay to get them to fit.) Game play is fairly fast, easy to learn and has more strategy than first thought. While everyone wants those high valued goods, there are ways to mitigate bad card draws. I suggest Board Game Geek for in depth reviews, video links and numerous variants. There is a solo play variant called "Wholesaler in Town" and even a 2+2 Team variant which expands the game's range.

I received this game & within minutes my 7 year old son & myself were playing. I taught him in less than 5 minutes & the fun began. It is a fast-paced card game that is producing hours & hours of entertainment. If you love card games & want some quick, fun, & easy to play this is your game.

This has become hands-down one of our favorite games to play. It is a two-player game that involves collecting sets of cards and basically cashing them in for tokens that are worth points. It's a very simple concept, but can get competitive when both players get the hang of the game. The camels definitely throw in an interesting twist as well as the "bonus" chips for cashing in larger sets of cards. All of these dynamics definitely make the game very interesting and create a lot of replay value. The only minor thing is that setup takes a little longer than most card games because you have to align and set up all of the different tokens in the correct order. It only takes a few minutes, but it makes setup a little more than just shuffling a deck of cards.

We have a board-game-playing family, and this game as become one of our favorites.

We love Catan, and Agricola, and Pandemic, and Forbidden Island--but sometimes we just want a shorter game. This game goes very quickly--and is fun because turns are quick so you don't spend time waiting for your players to take a turn. Also, it's a wonderful two-player game--unlike some games that can theoretically be played by 2 but work much better with 3 or 4.

Great replay value. We love this game.

And, you don't have to be a hard-core gamer to play; it's easy to figure out, so novice gamers can play too. And reading isn't required, so our first-grader loves it as much as the adults.

We bought this game for me and my wife toplay just the 2 of us. It took us some time to get the rules and play it through the first time but once we got the hang of it we enjoyed it. We thought it a bit overpriced though.
