Description
 
Although Africa had been circumnavigated by the start of the 19th century, the continent remained largely undiscovered.  One of the great mysteries was the source of the Nile, and explorers like Burton, Speke, Baker, Livingstone and Stanley became immortal in their attempts to find it.

Afterwards, in the span of a few decades, Africa became the subject of colonialism and trade expansion, and that is where Heart of Africa begins.  Players set out to gain as many victory points as possible.  As manager of a colonial trading company, you initially have only limited resources. A bidding structure decides who may conduct each turn. Although bidding is costly, rewards may be rich...

Resources, conflict, choice of actions, wholesale traders and players' reputations are all matters of concern in this smooth and fast playing game.  As each turn ends, players evaluate their score.  Will they have enough victory points to win?inutes.
