In 1631, Emperor Shah Jahan lost the love of his life, Mumtaz Mahal - the 'Chosen One of the Palace.' He was so grief-stricken, he promised to fulfil her one of her final wishes - to build her a breathtaking mausoleum, unrivalled in its grandeur. Not just wood and stone, but a living symbol of his love.
It took 22 years and 22000 Workers & Karigars (Artisans), and several elephants to build the Taj Mahal. Relive this historic period in this tabletop experience for 2-4 players as you collect historically authentic resources to construct man's greatest monument for a woman and earn the Emperor's favour.
You will play the role of a Karigar (Artisan) and strategically place your workers to gather the material you need in an ever-changing market. And you are not alone. Rival artisans seek the Emperor's favour too. Gather goods and mohurs (coins), optimise your resources to fulfil your secret blueprint objectives, and use your resources wisely to build the Taj level by level to earn baksheesh (gifts) from the Emperor.
Earn your place by the Emperor's side at the end of the game, and marvel at the moonlight caressing the stone of the Taj Mahal as the River Yamuna cradles the gently shifting reflection of her minarets. As the Indian poet Rabindranath Tagore described it, 'A teardrop on the cheek of time.'
