Players compete to turn a profit during the colonial era in Africa. You’ll invest in four chartered companies and use your influence to help them expand across the continent. This will improve the value of your shares in these companies. In this demanding strategy game, players will also trade in bananas, coffee or cotton, work together with diamond merchants and even ensure that the accounts are kept up to date. To make the most of this you’ll need to have the correct action cards (back) in your hand at the same time, which needs excellent forward planning. The various mechanisms in “Mombasa” fit together like cogs in an extremely elegant machine; the multitude of tactical possibilities create a sense of tension right up until the final scoring.
