Reiner Knizia's enduring classic; the iconic camels and elegant gameplay will captivate newcomers and longtime fans alike.

Through The Desert shines in how tight the gameplay can be. At the beginning of the game, the map looks wide open. But, as turns progress, it becomes harder and harder to score points. There's a "knife-fight-in-a-phone-booth" nature to the gameplay that reveals itself towards the end.

As a Tuareg trader, you place great honor in living and traveling across the shifting Sands. Yet life in the desert calls for courage and bravery. The vast, arid expanses of Northern Africa are as treacherous as they are mysterious, incapable of supporting life for an extended period of time. In through the desert, you direct your nomadic tribes over the sunbaked Sands, racing to gain the most important treasure the desert offers: water. But the desert affords you no mercy. Other tribes are vying for control of the limited water holes and oases. You will do what you must to gain control. Establish your caravans claim oases, and gain the points necessary to secure victory!
