Timbuktu is a lighter-weight deduction game where players lead herds of camels through the dangerous desert, avoiding traps and delivering goods. (17:15)
This week on Board Games with Scott, Scott Nicholson explores Timbuktu. This is a deduction game from Germany where players attempt to carry goods via camels safely to Timbuktu. As the game goes on, dastardly theives await at the oases to steal goods from camels that happen to be in the wrong place. Players deduce the safe places to travel through cards and observation.
