Description

At the intersection of the most well-traveled trade routes in the old world lies a city within rose-colored cliffs. A place where caravans miles long enter the city, through a narrow canyon called “the Siq.” Inside, traders from faraway lands find shelter and a place to trade their wares among the stunning buildings carved into towering red rocks. This is Petra, and never before or since has there been a city quite like it.

In Passing Through Petra, you are a powerful citizen growing your settlement and your reputation. As caravans pass through the canyons, you’ll welcome traders into your market and facilitate trade with those looking to get their hands on valuable wares. Use these transactions to spread your influence and gain unique benefits to grow your economic engine. Spread your influence the quickest to become the most powerful leader in Petra!

Petra was originally known as Raqmu to its inhabitants. An archaeological city which sits on the slope of the Jabal Al-Madbah. Believed to have been established 11,000 years ago, it served as a major trading hub for nomadic Arabs who came from far and wide to buy and sell goods at the local markets.

There are a lot of merchant-based games out there, but my guess is you haven’t seen one where the merchants are pinned between a three-dimensional wall of stone. Welcome to Petra—originally known as Raqmu—a historical city in southern Jordan (and not a character from Ender’s Game).
