From the publisher Zoch:
“Safranito” is an extraordinary action-filled game that challenges skillful tactics as well as tactical dexterity.
Like no other game before, “Safranito” is a combination of dexterity and tactics providing the game with a new, superb playing experience. At an Indian spice booth, the players bargain for the precious ingredients they need for their exquisite meals. Thereby, everyone throws their Indian coins face-down onto the bowls depicted on the game board. The players may bluff and push the opponents’ coins aside. A clever coin thrower is able to arrange the coins on the game board in a way that allows him to do both: sell his spices at a high price and purchase cheap spices as well. Eventually, the first player wins who has been able to acquire the spices needed to serve the maharajah his desired meal.
