Wow! One of the easiest games to pick up and play and so much fun! Essentially, you are trying to collect sets of cards representing market items to sell so you can collect the corresponding tokens. The first tokens of each market item are worth more than later tokens so collecting and selling early is desirable. At the end of the round you add up the points on your tokens and high score wins that round. Three rounds make a game and take about 20-30 minutes altogether.

What makes this game special is the CAMELS! On your turn you may either collect cards or sell cards. You have 5 face up cards to choose from and besides market items, there are camels. You can never pick up both camels and market cards. You may pick up all the camels OR one market card and replace from the draw pile or pick up more than one market card in which case you have to replace however many you take from your hand and/or your herd of camels! Whoever has the most camels at the end of a round gets a 5 pt bonus token also so there're some tough choices to make regarding whether to pick up camels or market cards. Scores are often tight, so each choice is important and can make the difference between winning and losing. Besides playing beautifully, this game is visually and tactilely beautiful also. The market chips are solid, fun to handle and as beautiful as the cards. It all comes in a small box with an incredibly designed insert for storage. Every time I take the lid off the box, I get that same feeling I got the first time--the subtle excitement of anticipation of playing a beautiful game. This is most definitely my favorite 2 player only game.
