A Targi is a male member of the Tuareg people, who live in the Sahara desert. As tribe leader, you will be trading dates, salt, and pepper to obtain coveted gold coins and advantages. In the game, the desert is a five-by-five grid of cards. Position your Targi figures on the cards that border the desert. You carry out the actions of those cards as well as the cards at the crossroads between them. If you don’t go to the merchant, you won’t be able to trade - and even worse, your opponent will. Or maybe a caravan will bring the merchandise you desire. There are many choices to consider. But don’t wait too long, the desert is harsh and you might miss an opportunity to make a deal. In the next round, a completely different set of offerings will be on the table. The goods cards are the means to the end of getting highly desired tribe cards. These in turn bring advantages during the game and victory points at the end. You can win only if you plan shrewdly and always keep some gold in your pocket.

Incredible game, so much gameplay for so little $. 2 player worker placement at it's finest, actually feels a little abstract with resource management and tableau building. Fantastic game and it showed up in fantastic shape. Thanks Gamenerdz
This is a great Worker Placement game. It's only a two-player game but it's a great game with lots of interesting choices to make each turn. Richard Ham who does the "Rahdo Runs Through" videos says it's in his Top Ten Worker Placement games of All Time. I agree.
