The Basics
Description: This Wolfgang Kramer offering is widely overlooked because it came out on the heels of his other very successful game, El Grande. In this game, players are businessmen traveling around the world, doing what businessmen do: making money. In this case, business is defined as opening hotels and factories in major cities, like Sydney, Cairo, and New York. Hotels in a given city earn money for the player with the most hotels on the city, as well as having second most. As the number of hotels on a particular city increases, however, the payout can ultimately decrease and older hotels become inactive until they are refurbished.

This version is not for sale, you will need to purchase El Capitán
