Rather than delving into the dark past of colonial oppression, Pfister's design focuses on the economics of the era. Players represent investors in the various companies who were expanding trade in Africa. The game is a deep, challenging affair with many roads to victory...or defeat!
The game, published by Repos Productions, continues the empire-building theme of the award winning 7 Wonders, bringing the game's exciting atmosphere to a 2-player format. The game is tense and exciting, but is easy to learn and play.
