It is the end of the 15th Century and the postal companies of Thurn and Taxis are trying to monopololise Central Europe, gaining wealth and reputation. The postal service has been revolutionized and now mail can be delivered by mounted messengers covering legs of 25 km each, who hand the mail over at the “Post Offices” like a relay race!
Karen and Andreas Seyfarth's game is set in this era. The task of the players is it to develop the most effective Postal System. Each player tries to place 20 milestones among the 22 cities. The players race for the most valuable bonuses. Larger carriages also define the strategy of the game. If the largest size carriage is achieved the game is over!
The game is about taking and placing cards as well as planning. You need to consider which of the cities to take, where to play, what bonuses are still available and how quickly to extend your carriage!
