Subtitled: "The Marvelous Adventures of Marco Polo" Translated text from the game box: "The voyages of Marco Polo to the fabulous cities of the Orient took more than ten years. To a player of Samarcanda two hours are enough, should fortune smile, to reach the financial position to be named Doge of Venice. Precious goods are available to all, but between the Venetian merchants and a thousand dangers stand expensive tolls, desert raiders or the worst misfortune of all, terrible Genoan pirates just waiting for the incautious traveler to make a false step in order to clean him out. All of these don't even take into account the variations in market prices that, with a simple roll of the dice, could change a fortune into ruin! Up to 6 merchants can try, traveling on earth or sea as they prefer, this wonderful adventure, which is offered to all players who love games. The refined graphics of Samarcanda, based on the colors gold, white and green, provide also a visual pleasure.

Upon which, amidst the experiences of day-to-day modern life, it is impossible not to regard without nostalgia and interest."
