PETRA: THE GAME
Available from Starting Point Books, Games and Puzzles

 

 An exciting new game from the CanBooks Game Division that re-creates the hectic days of development and expansion of the ancient city of Petra. Now you can be one of the up and comming Nabataean merchants and try your hand at making a fortune and becoming the most honorable member of the city. But be careful, if you get too powerful, other merchants will be ready to haul you before the city council and take your properties. Perhaps you can develop links with the Ptolomies, the Selucides or the Jews. But even they can't save you if your strategy isn't working.

This is a full size board game where you play a wealthy citizen of Petra. Compete with other players to gain wealth, build monuments, and eventually become the most honorable citizen in the city. But beware, if you get too far ahead, your opponents may haul you before the city council and take your building! Ages 12 and up.

Ages 10 and up, 2 - 6 players
