Through The Desert Board Game


Drake says: "In Through the Desert, two to five players each control a tribe of nomads vying for control of the desert. By establishing camel caravans and taking over oases, the players gain points as their tribes increase in power. Strategy is essential in deciding how and where to build your tribe's caravans. There is more than one way to gain points, and several ways to win."


John says: "Through the Desert is very deceptive, with its simple rules, pastel-colored game pieces, and short playing time. However, this is a deep game of pure strategy, with no luck involved. Many people feel that it is reminiscent of Go. Through the Desert is part of the Knizia tile-laying trilogy (together with Tigris & Euphrates and Samurai)."


Reiner Knizia


The desert is treacherous, mysterious, and without mercy. But for those willing to risk the dangers of the shifting, sun-baked sands, the desert holds riches beyond compare.

Hunchy says: "If you like Samurai or Tigris & Eurphates, you'll love Through The Desert! All 3 games are designed by Reiner Knizia and are part of his tile-laying trilogy. Through The Desert is probably the most accessible of the 3.
