Around the year 1900, Hamburg is the gate to the world. In the
center of the harbor there is a unique complex of storage houses:
The Speicherstadt (warehouse district). The dense web of loading
canals and bridges rapidly develops to become a vast terminal for
spices, coffee and carpets from all over the world. You are a wholesale
dealer residing in Hamburg at the boom years of the Speicherstadt,
buying shiploads and serving your clients. Hire firemen to protect
your goods and counting offices from occasional fires. The player
doing the best business during the course of one year will be the
winner of the game.
The Speicherstadt has a simple but highly original game mechanism.
