A tactical game concering the world's biggest oil field by Johannes Halbig for 2-4 players of 8 years of age

You define the price you are willing to pay. Simly chose the value.
(We are often asked if there are differences depending on the choice of the price - no: you determine the value that the game has for you and we are of course happy if you keep in mind that we also put work and commitment into the realization of the project).

Ghawar, located in Saudi Arabia, is the world's biggest oil field. Set to this background the players represent members of the royal family and try to locate good sites for new oil wells, find and deliver the different oil qualities and ship them to their base camps. However, the oil field is so huge that the players have to memorize where which oil quality is to be found. Moreover, the competing players are likely to interefere with the player's intentions. To win the game, it is mandatory to collect oil qualities of different kinds, always keeping an eye on the ever changing prices. Balancing this will help !

As for the game play, Ghawar is a pick-up-and-deliver game with a roll-and-move mechanism on top of a memory element. On a 13x13 game board, 36 oil platforms are laid out in a 6x6 square with one empty space between each pair of platforms.
