„Spiele aus Timbuktu“ is back!
For 25 years now, Michael Schacht designs games. The anniversary year is a good opportunity for a celebration. At the SPIEL fair in Essen, „Hellweg westfalicus“ has been published, celebrating also a second anniversary as well: 15 years of „Spiele aus Timbuktu“. This small publishing project run by Michael Schacht originally offered games to tinker. Over the time a collectors box, expansions and „real“ produced boardgames as special editons competed the portfolio.
With „Hellweg westfalicus“ a special edition has been released that is a moderate economic game for 2 to 4 players from 10 years of age. The Westphalian Hellweg is a more than 5,000 year-old road between Duisburg and Paderborn and up to the Middle Ages was of great importance for trading.
From the box: „Buy goods at low prices and sell them for maximum profit! On offer are salt, beer and ironware. If you wait too long, you might get a good purchasing price but only for what is still left. You can create trade routes with the help of coaches and thus supply distant towns. The player who owns the most money after 12 rounds wins the game.“
„Hellweg westfalicus“ is a boardgame for 2 to 4 players from 10 years on, duration 30-60 minutes
Content: 35 cards, 90 wooden tiles, 45 coins, 1 gameboard, 1 rulebooklet (german and english)
Publisher: Spiele aus Timbuktu, Agentur Vielfalt (1F 103)
