For a long time, two-player card games have always been the choice of those who have few friends to play with, and want a fast but tactical fighting game. Names like Battle Line and Lost Cities are often mentioned. And Jaipur is also a worthy choice. Why? Let's explore together.
  • Production time: 2009
  • Number of players: 2 - 4
  • Age: 10+
  • Time: 30 minutes
  • Genre: Strategy - Business

A game of Jaipur is divided into 3 games, whoever wins 2 of them wins in the end. The reason is that the time of a game is quite fast, about 10 to 15 minutes. The goal of the game is to exchange, buy and sell items of the same set. During your turn, you can either take one of the 5 middle cards, trade the more middle cards with the cards in your hand, or sell. Those are the 3 main choices while playing, which are really, very simple to teach. 

Jaipur's biggest focus is on how it sells its products. If you sell 1 product, you will take the first 1 coin of that product type. For example, if you sell fabric, you take the first coin of the fabric. The coins are sorted in descending value, so the first seller gets the coin with the highest denomination

In Jaipur, timing is everything. You consider when to take produce, get camels or sell, and what kind of products to sell. Each of your actions will influence the opponent's decision. Don't make mistakes that will give others an advantage. After a few games, you will begin to imagine how to sell a reasonable strategy. Despite luck, strategy is more important in Jaipur – a beginner can easily be defeated by an experienced player. 


Beautiful, eye-catching images with Indian designs. Good post quality, solid token. Smooth and fast gameplay, many tactical options. Do you know someone who loves board games like you? Why not immediately buy this Jaipur set and play with that person? How about knowing that this is going to be a favorite game for the two of you?
