In Silk Road, players will be able to expand the scope of their Cities by building trade routes between them! As an additional action during their Construction phase, before building a City players can pay 3 resources in order to build 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 protruding branches, which will allow that City to be connected to two other Cities. This means each City can only be attached in two directions, creating a road-like chain! Of course, these rings will be fully illustrated to represent the trade routes they’re creating!
