Z-Man Games Announces New Edition of Through the Desert

Dr. Reiner Knizia has made a couple games over the years. You know, just one or two...
Well, one of his older games is getting a bit of a facelift and a new edition. Z-Man Games has announced that they're going to be adding Through the Desert to their Euro Classics series.

From the announcement:

Z-Man Games is proud to announce Reiner Knizia’s Through the Desert will be joining the Euro Classics line of games!

Fans of Through the Desert got their first taste of the game when it was originally released to critical acclaim in 1998. Now, Dr. Knizia’s beloved classic sports an updated look that will appeal to longtime fans and new players alike when it is released later this year.

The vast, arid expanses of the desert are as mysterious as they are treacherous, incapable of supporting life for long. As a Tuareg trader, you lead your caravans across the sweeping sand dunes of Northern Africa, seeking to secure access to as many precious water sources as you can. In Through the Desert, two to five players venture across this inhospitable landscape, expanding their caravans ensure that their tribe is the one that controls the trade in the Sahara.
