Watch where you put your feet! The bazaar is bustling: it's the big day at the rug market! The best merchant will soon be named!
Each player is a merchant trying to outwit the others. Taking turns, they roll the die and then move Assam, the market organizer. If Assam stops on an opponent's rug, that player must make a payment to the owner before putting one of their own rugs on an adjoining space. When the last rug has been laid, the total number of visible rugs and the number of coins owned by each player are added together. The richest player wins!

"The coins come, they go and the rugs just keep stacking up on the board. There is definitely a lot of time to spend with your fellow gamers on this one going back and forth."
