Hi! It’s Ryan from Nights Around a Table, and this is The Voyages of Marco Polo, a dice-rolling, worker placement game for 2-4 players. Here’s the deal. You and your friends play famous explorer Marco and his pals, setting off across Asia to fulfill contracts and establish trading outposts and trade routes. The game has a set of rules for how to play, and everyone plays a unique character that breaks those rules in some outrageous way. There are various paths to victory, and after 5 rounds, whoever has scored the most victory points is the winner! Does it sound interesting?
