Hi! It’s Ryan from Nights Around a Table, and this is Century: Spice Road, a casual, deck-building card game for 2-5 players. Here’s the deal. The game centers around these four spices, each one more valuable than the next. You and your friends play spice traders. Your goal is to collect the spices, and use them to buy these point cards. Everyone starts with a number of spices depending on turn order. Each player gets a starting hand consisting of these two merchant cards. Six more merchant cards are dealt out to the table. On your turn, you have to perform one of these actions: Buy a point card, play a merchant card from your hand, take a merchant card from the table, or rest. When any player buys a fifth point card, you finish out the round, and then count up the points to see who’s won. Well, does it sound interesting? If you want to learn more about the rules of the game, click the link at the end of this video or in the description below to watch my complete How to Play video, which includes the overview segment you just watched.
