The Sherpa people are known for their exquisite mountaineering skills
and often used that knowledge to be effective guides to explorers on
mountaineering expeditions. In this game, you are a member of the Sherpa
community that is establishing base camps on Nanga Parbat for foreign
explorers. While there, you will also trap animals for food and
In this 2-player game, players take turns placing hikers on the
mountain where they can capture animals and build base camps. Five times
during the game, a player may either trade in their animals or build a
base camp for victory points.
On a turn, a player must place their hiker in the region containing
the guide, who then moves based on the placement of the hiker, thereby
forcing the opponent to place their hiker in a new region. However,
players may spend their capture animals to perform special actions.
After 15 turns for each player, the game ends and the player with the most points wins.
