Grail Games has announced that Kashgar: Merchants of the Silk Road will be coming soon! They licensed the game from Kosmos and will be releasing the first English-language edition in early 2018.
Gerhard Hecht’s Kashgar is a deck-building game where players build three “caravans” or open decks. Whichever card is at the front of the caravan will determine which actions you have available.
Each turn a player can only perform 1 action. You’ll pick a card from one of your three caravans and take the action. Then the resolved card goes to the back of its caravan. You will use the cards to get new cards, buy spices and mules, and make deliveries.
Jess: I’ve never played Kashgar, but from the description it sounds really strategic and interesting. I can’t wait until it comes out in first quarter of 2018. Keep an eye on grail-games.com for updates on Kashgar: Merchants of the Silk Road.
