Caravan Morphs into Century: Spice Road

Plan B Games, which was only recently founded, has announced that their first game will be Century: Spice Road, designed by Emerson Matsuuchi.

The game’s description on Board Game Geek lists four main actions: establish a trade route by taking a market card, play a card from your hand to make a trade or harvest spices, fulfill a demand by meeting a card’s requirements and taking it, and take all your cards back into your hand.

The game ends when a player has fulfilled 5 demand cards. Then the players all total up their victory points, which they get from demand cards, and whoever has the most points wins.

Century: Spice Road

If the game sounds kind of familiar, it’s because it seems that it is a tweaked version of Caravan. Z-Man Games announced Caravan, designed by Emerson Matsuuchi, in 2016.

Caravan was actually originally going to be released by Plaid Hat Games, but they turned the game over to Z-Man, who then has now given it to Plan B Games.

Plan B Games has taken the game and made it into a trilogy. Century: Spice Road will be the first game in a trilogy of Century games. The games will each take place in a different century and will depict the major trading systems and routes of those eras.

Century: Spice Road will be released worldwide June 14, 2017. It is for 2-5 players, takes about 30-45 minutes to play, and will cost $39.99.
