Jaipur (Second Edition)

(2 customer reviews)


Challenge your rival at the marketplace as you buy, sell and trade commodities in Jaipur to become the personal trader of the Maharaja!


Jaipur, capital of Rajasthan. You are one of the two most powerful traders in the city.

But that’s not enough for you, because only the merchant with two Seals of Excellence will have the privilege of being invited to the Maharaja’s court.

You are therefore going to have to do better than your direct competitor by buying, exchanging and selling at better prices, all while keeping an eye on both your camel herds.

A card game for two seasoned traders!

When it’s your turn, you can either take or sell cards.

If you take cards, you have to choose between taking all the camels, taking 1 card from the market or swapping 2 to 5 cards between the market and your cards.

If you sell cards, you get to sell only one type of good per turn, and you get as many chips from that good as you sold cards. The chips’ values decrease as the game progresses, so you’d better hurry ! But, on the other hand, you get increasingly high rewards for selling 3, 4, or 5 cards of the same good at a time, so you’d better wait!

You can’t sell camels, but they’re paramount for trading and they’re also worth a little something at the end of the round, enough sometimes to secure the win, so you have to use them smartly.

Jaipur is a fast-paced card game, a blend of tactics, risk and luck.

  1. Craig

    I’ve been playing this a lot recently, as my wife and I have just moved into an apartment in a city where we don’t know many people. Two people game to the rescue! It’s quick to play, but there’s enough cut-throat moves to make the game exciting. We often finish within a few points of each other, so the game dynamics keep different play styles well balanced.

    Jaipur is one of the most beautiful, elegant and streamlined 2-player hand management games imaginable with a high degree of strategy but mechanically is very simple and intuitive.

    This will go down well with new gamers and veterans alike, a must 2-player game for any collection!
