Description

You are one of the two most powerful traders in the city of Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan, but that’s not enough for you because only the merchant with two “seals of excellence” will have the privilege of being invited to the Maharaja’s court. You are therefore going to have to do better than your direct competitor by buying, exchanging, and selling at better prices, all while keeping an eye on both your camel herds.

Jaipur is a fast-paced card game, a blend of tactics, risk and luck. On your turn, you can either take or sell cards. If you take cards, you have to choose between taking all the camels, taking one card from the market, or swapping 2-5 cards between the market and your cards.

If you sell cards, you get to sell only one type of good, and you receive as many chips for that good as the number of cards you sold. The chips’ values decrease as the game progresses, so you’d better hurry! On the other hand, you receive increasingly high rewards for selling three, four, or five cards of the same good at a time, so you’d better wait!

You can’t sell camels, but they’re paramount for trading and they’re also worth a little something at the end of the round, enough sometimes to secure the win, so you have to use them smartly.

  1. Nicky Gouldstone

    Jaipur is a fantastic stop gap game to enjoy in that frustrating period between games for 2 players who cannot make their minds up. A set collection game mixed with a small amount of push your luck mechanisms, you are a trader vying to get the most you can out of your goods cards by trading them for items to present to the maharaja. The game pits a players ability to know when to strike the hot iron to get the most bang for their buck and rewards the brave and foolhardy alike.
    People who enjoy the pressure of “do i wait a turn for a better buy or buy now and not risk it” moments will find multiple plays in a single session of this fine title.
    5 out of 5 dromedaries!
