Jambo Card Game
Drake says: "In Jambo, Players take on the role of merchants offering wares from their market stands. A player has five actions to choose from per turn. Actions can be used to draw cards, play cards and activate buildup cards. Players will be challenged to decide which wares to offer, and which buildup cards to use. The first player to reach a set cash level through buying and selling of wares is the winner."

John says: "The many different combinations of "Special cards" make this game attractive and varied each play. This is one of the best 2-player games available with lots of theme and replay value. Highly Recommended."

Jambo! is the friendly greeting Swahili traders offered their customers in Central Africa before colonization. The players are traders in this day, competing to be the first to earn 60 gold by selling tea, hide, fruits, salt, silk, and trinkets. The game is played with cards which represent goods, people (which can help you or hinder your opponent), and animals (which add a bit of spice to the game). Players take turns with up to 5 actions per turn until one player reaches the goal and wins the game.
