Renegade Game Studios Announces Passing Through Petra Board Game

If Petra sounds familiar, you might remember it from The Last Crusade. It's the place that's used as the final location of the Holy Grail. But while the place probably doesn't hold the legendary cup, it's no less a magical and important place in history. In Passing Through Petra, coming this October from Renegade Game Studios, you'll make your way through the legendary place, yourself (well, vicariously through your game pieces, anyway).

From the website:

At the intersection of the most well-traveled trade routes in the old world lies a city within rose-colored cliffs. A place where caravans miles long enter the city, through a narrow canyon called “the Siq.” Inside, traders from faraway lands find shelter and a place to trade their wares among the stunning buildings carved into towering red rocks. This is Petra, and never before or since has there been a city quite like it.

In Passing Through Petra, you are a powerful citizen growing your settlement and your reputation. As caravans pass through the canyons, you’ll welcome traders into your market and facilitate trade with those looking to get their hands on valuable wares. Use these transactions to spread your influence and gain unique benefits to grow your economic engine. Spread your influence the quickest to become the most powerful leader in Petra!
