Heart of Africa
From the Publisher...
Between 1845 and 1870, many expeditions were penetrating the heartland of Africa. Names like Burton, Speke, Baker and Livingstone are set is stone: they became true heroes of the modern world, especially in England where morale was low after the disastrous Crimean War and the gruesome Indian uprising. Dr. David Livingstone became a legend in his own lifetime, trying at all cost to discover the source of the Nile. After six years and three failed relief attempts, it took an American funded expedition, led by the equally brave and unrelentless journalist Morton Stanley, to find the withered and dying Dr. Livingstone on the shores of Lake Tanganyika.
Soon after, Africa became the subject of colonialism and trade expansion. This is where the game begins. Two to five players set out to gain as many victory points as possible. As manager of a colonial trading company, you initially have only limited resources. Each round, a bidding structure decides the order of turns. Although bidding is costly, rewards may be rich…
Resources, conflict, choice of actions, wholesale trading and players’ reputations are all matters of concern in this smooth and fast playing game. As each turn ends, players evaluate their situation. Will they have enough victory points to win?
