On the Silk Road, players will be able to widen the scope of their cities by building trade routes between them! As an additional action during their construction phase, before creating a city, players can pay 3 resources to create a trade route to or from a city they control. This trade route will be represented by a punchboard ring placed around your city. Each of these rings has two projecting branches, which will allow this city to be connected to two other cities. This means that each city can only be connected in two directions, creating a road-like chain! Of course, these rings will be fully illustrated to represent the trade routes they create!

These trade routes offer players a multitude of new options: When a city is connected to a trade route, its owner earns victory points equal to the number of other cities on that route. When a city is activated, the player receiving these resources can choose to find out about the color of that city or about a city connected to the same trade route.

Cities connected to a trade route can be used both as a color and as any city connected to the same trade route during the game with respect to Control cards and other effects. Trade routes can be worth big points. The further you go in the game, the more cities there are potentially connected to trade routes, the more points you can generate. However, your trade route does not belong to you, but in the spirit of trade, everyone can connect to it and earn points if they have the necessary resources!

Also coming is a new range of Master Cards that will work outside the trade route mechanism to generate new resources, victory points, influence, and more!
