Boardgame Geek Review:
Rich merchants and their families ply the Silk Route of the Orient with their caravans in order to make lucrative business. Players take the role of traders who marry into other families in order to extend their influences to acquire more goods and coins. Samarkand makes a great family or intro game because of its simple rules and quick playing time even when teaching new players.
