Spice Trade is a historical business game that is based on a perspective of an Arab merchant living in the 14th century, when Europeans were starting their voyages of exploration across the continents. Player's character is named Abu Al-Qazzaz, a poor young man from Baghdad who has inherited a house and some land. Having decided to try his luck in spice trade for a living, he also has to start a family, expand his business, and ultimately prevent the European powers from dominating not only the spice trade, but also the whole economy and culture, in the Arab world. At the same time, his gradual success will help Arab countries spread their economic and cultural influences in Europe. (From Home of the Underdogs description, http://www.the-underdogs.info/)
