The bazaar is bustling: it's the big day at the rug market! The best salesperson will soon be named!

Each player is a salesperson who tries to outwit the others. Each player takes it in turns to throw the dice and then move Assam the market organiser. If Assam stops on an opponent's rug, the salesperson must make a payment to its owner before putting one of their own rugs on an adjoining space. When the last rug has been laid, the total number of visible rugs and the number owned by each salesperson are added up: the best player wins!

Reviews Review Game

Like many other Gigamic games this is a simple and very effective game which can be learned in minutes but still has enough competition to make it worthwhile for serious gamers. Its a light game, but the wonderful components with real miniature rugs and fez wearing market supervisor give it a visual edge that set it apart from many other games of its type. Players on their turn have to first move the market supervisor, before moving him they can turn him up to 90 degrees left or right, they then roll a dice a move him the exact number of spaces shown on the dice. If he ends on a space covered with a rug belonging to another player then the active player has to pay that player money equal to the number of spaces covered by rugs of that colour which are part of a continuous block with the square the market supervisor is on. Lastly the active player places a rug of his own on a space adjacent the the one occupied by the market supervisor. So players are trying to get large areas of their coloured rugs down, while breaking up other players areas. The game ends when each players rug supply has run out and the winner is the player with the most visible squares of rugs of his colour added to the money in his hand. A simple game for all the family and a joy to play.

Overall rating 4/5

A very very easy game to play, used as a warm up game for our nights in due to the speed of the game and length of play time.

A simple concept, who ever has the most rug showing wins! (and yes that made us laugh to). This can get quite tactical without slowing the game to much but has enough of a random edge with the dice role that you shouldn't get frustrated by other players destroying your plans to often! Only reason I chose a 4 rather then a 5 is that a game really needs to grab me to get that final point, tho i would happily play this game again it would lose out to others unless we were pressed for time.

A bargin at that price! A good quality bored, well made coin counters and 57 real rugs!!! No complaints at what you get for your cash here!

A Game for up to four players this is a simple game to get into, you have carpets to lay on a board around the marker, you throw a dice and move the marker round the board laying your carpets on the adjacent squares to your finishing position, [avoiding the other players carpets] if you land on another players carpet you have to pay him/her 1 coin for each carpet owned by that player in that group, when laying your carpets it is important to try and split up their groups of carpets, this will mean you pay less if you land on them again.

The game ends when all the carpets are used, the winner is the one with the most carpet squares showing once counted.

I really liked this game, I would definitely play this again and possibly buy it. :D
