  • Throughout history, beautiful gems have been the prized possessions of kings, artisans and lovers alike. Now as then, wealthy clients send gem dealers to search the world over for the finest stones to add to their fortunes. In a back room of The Club Hotel in San Isidro, Peru, you face rival dealers from other gem syndicates. You use cunning, strategy and a little bluffing as you bid against each other for the precious stones that will complete your client's collection - and perhaps line your pockets as well!

    The object of this fabulously re-themed Reiner Knizia collecting game is to be the first dealer to gather one gem of each color. Players bid cards from their hands in a competition for any one color, and must decide whether to bid heavily now to secure the prize or save your cards for a final coup d’etat. Whoever bids the most in any one round collects a gem of that color, but can only draw one more card from the draw pile. This simple rule results in a game of terrific tension, as players wrestle with short-term and long-term needs every time the decision to bid or pass comes back to them. Great for families, get-togethers or even travel.
