|This is a tile placement game but to get the tiles on the board players have to go through the Offering. Each turn players decide how many cards to offer the other players, up to 3. Then, in player order, the players choose one of the sets of cards that the players have offered. These cards let a player either make a tile placement of one of the three tile types, steppe, oasis or stony, or place wooden camels on the board.
The object here is to get a balance between number of tiles played and the multiplier for those tiles, as without a multiplier tile, the tiles played will not score any points, and nor will any camel herds without their multiplier. For example you may have a large number of oasis tiles, but only 1 or 2 water well multipliers, so you have a low score. equally, you may have only a few steppe tiles, but several horse multipliers and so have a larger score..
The game has some interesting and intriguing gameplay to offer. Not only in deciding how many cards you decide to put into your offer, which are drawn blind, but also in where to place your tiles on the board to try to maximise your own score while at the same time trying to block your opponents tile placements to minimise their scores. Probably works best with 4 or 5 players.
