A Game of Caravans and Desert Oases.
The desert is treacherous, mysterious, and without mercy. for those willing to
risk the dangers of the sun-baked, shifting sands, the desert can hold a rich
life and untold beauty.
In Through the Desert, two to five players each control a tribe
of nomads vying for control of the desert. By establishing caravan routes and
claiming valuable waterholes, players seek to increase the influence and
territory of their tribe.
Strategy is essential in deciding how and where to build your tribe's caravans.
There is more than one way to gain points, and several ways to win. Should you
try to build the longest caravan? Or should you dominate the desert's oases?
Don't forget to keep an eye on your opponents' caravans, or you may find your
own tribe cut off from valuable water holes.
