1:35:24 – Rules Overview

In Marrakesh designed by Stephan Feld and published by Queen Games you are in Marrakesh trying to garner influence, profit, capture scrolls, make money…I…I don’t know.  It’s a Feld, you are trying to score the most points and have bunches of ways to do it.

The game is played over 3 seasons and each season lasts 4 rounds.  At the beginning of each season you are given 12 different Keshis.  These Keshi come in 12 different colors and represents several different things you can do in the game. Each round, each player are choosing three of their Keshis to activate different areas of the board.  Once all the players have chosen these Keshi, they are all dumped into a Keshi tower, so you never really know which of them will be available each round.  The players then draft these Keshi to put into their player board.  Essentially the more Keshi you have in an area, the more power it is when you activate. 

Some areas allow you to buy goods, which score you points and could get you more resources.  Some areas move you up tracks, which can garner more Keshi, points, or resources.  One area you can race up a river, for points, resources, or end of round abilities. Another area gives you access to abilities or end game scoring. One area lets you build city gates which gets you resources, Keshi, and you guessed it. POINTS.  Sensing a pattern?  All the areas, lets you get points, Keshi, or resources, but they each do it in very unique ways. As the game progresses these area get more and more powerful. If you fill an area completely with Keshi you get some end game scoring.  At the end of the game, whoever has the most points win.
