Why It's On The List
  • A great Knizia exploration game that was sadly under-rated when it first appeared in 2002 because it wasn't the next Euphrat & Tigris.
Tips & Tricks:
  • As much as possible, don't waste moves. You can work to set up plays so that you can make sure that each turn has two productive activities.
  • Use the "skip a turn, move anywhere" power sparingly.
  • Relocating nomads can be very lucrative point-wise, especially if you plan for it.
  • Africa packs a lot of game into 30 minutes... it's worth tracking down a copy.
