“Safranito” is an extraordinary action-filled game that challenges skillful tactics as well as tactical dexterity.
Like no other game before, “Safranito” is a combination of dexterity and tactics providing the game with a new, superb playing experience. At an Indian spice booth, the players bargain for the precious ingredients they need for their exquisite meals. Thereby, everyone throws their Indian coins face-down onto the bowls depicted on the game board. The players may bluff and push the opponents’ coins aside. A clever coin thrower is able to arrange the coins on the game board in a way that allows him to do both: sell his spices at a high price and purchase cheap spices as well. Eventually, the first player wins who has been able to acquire the spices needed to serve the maharajah his desired meal.
The game rules in brief, with graphics, on 2 pages intended for double-sided printing. Includes images of each spice with
names! Print one of these for each player, or print a couple for the game group to share.
(Updated version to reflect a rule clarification.)
I made this for myself, and thought others might find it useful as well.
Yes, this game is pretty simple. But some of the subtleties are tough to remember, especially if you're teaching new folks after not having played for a while, or if you've had a beer or two. ;)
