A Spiel des Jahres Recommended game, Jaipur is one of the most most well-loved 2-player tabletop games. Jaipur is a fast-paced card game for two players with a blend of tactics, risk and luck. You are one of the most powerful traders in Jaipur, the capital city of Rajasthan. You and your opponent duel to demonstrate to the Maharajah that you can earn a greater profit than your competition. At the end of a round, one player receives the Maharajah's seal of excellence, and the first player to earn two seals of excellence wins the privilege of being invited to the Maharajahs court!

Each turn, you can choose to take one card, exchange your cards for other goods, buy the camels needed to transport your wares, or sell at the market. The sooner you sell and the more you sell of a single good at once, the higher your profit.

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, but you get increasingly high rewards for selling sets of 3, 4, or 5 cards of the same good at a time, so its all about waiting just the right amount of time to make your trade.

You cant sell camels, but they are integral to trading and theyre also worth a little something at the end of the round, sometimes enough to secure the win so use them smartly!

Just bought it. Tutorial was good and covered all the rules. There's campaign mode which I'm currently playing. Nice polished game. Next, I will try out the online games...

Jaipur is one of my wife's favorites. We love playing it as it's sufficiently lightweight, deep and fun for a quick session.

Online seems to be real time, not asynchronous, which is a shame as we were very much looking forward to playing this async.

Can anyone confirm? I was just in the lobby but couldn't join any game, and didn't look like I could invite people who weren't online.

They did the same with Splendor, unfortunately. Such a waste.

It sure appears so with the added annoyance that the turn timers are a bit borked, at least as 1 player described, where he timed out DURING HIS OPPONENT'S TURN and was thus dropped from the game (???).
