DESCRIPTION

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.

This new edition has the same plastic pastel-colored camels and trees as the first edition.

COMPONENTS

1 game board
175 plastic camel playing pieces
30 plastic camel-rider playing pieces
45 water hole counters
5 plastic oasis trees
40 point-counting chips
