KASHGAR: MERCHANTS OF THE SILK ROAD (Grail Games, 2 to 4 players, ages 12 and up, 60 minutes; $39.99)
Several years back, at the gaming convention known as The Gathering of Friends, I had the pleasure of playing a game about merchants leading caravans, travelling and trading on the legendary Silk Road. It was the highlight of my time there and I couldn’t wait to get a copy for myself. But I had played a “mock up” of the game, sleeved with English paste-ups because the language heavy cards were totally in German! No matter, I thought, surely the game will appear in an English language edition soon. Well, soon has turned into years but to the rescue has come Grail Games with their English language edition of Gerhard Hecht’s Kashgar: Merchants of the Silk Road.
