Africa

Quick look by Moritz Eggert

Mildly fascinating "exploration" game by the master himself, more luck-driven than most of Knizia's other games. The feeling of exploring the Dark Continent comes across as a kind of side note, as this is more as a symbol collector's race. There are too many games which explore similar territory, and most of them are better, but this game has very simple rules and a certain family appeal going for it. Called racist by some, but I've never understood why.
