Mombasa is a tense Euro-style strategy game set in 18th century Africa, where great wealth and fortune await players through multiple paths to victory. The game features a unique rotating-display hand-mechanism that drives game play. Trading goods reaped from your plantations, you acquire shares of companies based in Mombasa, Saint-Louis, Cape Town and Cairo. However, the value of a company is only as good as its sphere of influence. So expanding into new territories is vital if you want your investments to pay off. Players start with an identical hand, but acquire new and more powerful cards from the rotating display throughout the game. Will you collect diamonds or opt for clever bookkeeping? Will you play aggressively by expanding companies and pushing back others, or will you sit on the fence and jump in at an opportune moment? Perhaps a little of everything!.

This is a worker placement stock building strategy game that lasts 7 rounds - I can purchase stock in a company, I can make the stock of a company more/less valuable or I can use the library/rubies to advance my points and increase the number of actions per round. I prefer to think of this as Concordia meets Agricola - would definitely recommend this to fans of similar worker placement games.
The rules can be a bit complicated for the first time - this is definitely NOT a gateway board game. Be prepared to pore over the rule-book for at least 30 min (for the first time) and to keep referring back to it during the first 1-2 times you play this. This complexity is what allows the several paths to victory - it isn't very easy to become a runaway leader in this game.
This plus the rest of the point-scoring mechanics make it a great title at $60. At ~$35, it's one of the better values in board gaming. Especially with the degree of variability it has between games.
