In The Voyages of Marco Polo, players embody one of the many people who worked with and around Marco Polo during his travels. They start in Venice, but the choices each player makes will affect the journey upon which they embark. These decisions must be carefully considered... Will you go directly to Beijing? Or would you prefer to follow the lavish route across Sumatra?
In addition to these strategic options - which change from game to game - players must also consider which contracts are worthwhile, as well as where and when other players are likely to get in their way.
Whether you play as the monk William of Rubruck, as a merchant from Tabriz, or even Kublai Khan himself, the game is always exciting and challenging. Who will you be this time?
