In 16th century India, the powerful empire of the Great Moguls rises between the Indus and Ganges rivers. Taking on the role of rajas and ranis - the country's influential nobles - players race against each other in support of the empire by developing their estates into wealthy and magnificent provinces. Players must use their dice wisely and carefully plot where to place their workers, while never underestimating the benefits of good karma. Success will bring them great riches and fame in their quest to become legendary rulers!

Rajas is a personal favorite. Beautiful table presence and simple mechanics with interesting choices. It shouldn't work: it features dice drafting, worker placement, tile drafting and placement...it sounds like it should be a complicated mess. But it's not. It's a delightful race that has multiple paths to victory and rewards pivoting when the dice or other players stymie you (but has enough mitigation that you can do what you want). Highly Recommended.
At long last: a game by the Brands that I didn't like! There is a great deal in Rajas that I actually do like; but1) the overly busy board,2) the fiddly rules system,3) the lack of a catch-up mechanism, and4) the lack of a way (even an expensive way) of mitigating die-rolls in a significant mannermakes the game a disappointment....unless you like Feld games: it definitely feels far more Feldian than Brandian, which coming from me is a bad thing.And a warning: if you suffer from blue-green colour-blindness (as I tend towards), playing Rajas WILL be a challenge!
April 2020- funny game. I was pretty stressed out at first as the game clicked for my wife and I was lagging behind. I took notes and did better the second time. The roads on the tiles and the bonuses are key to success. Also rolling higher also makes things easier April 2020$25 BoardGameCo
Really like the two tracks scoring mechanism; lots of ways to mitigate bad rolls, but multiple can still be frustrating.
