Promotional Information

Designed by Fabio Lopiano and with graphic design and illustrations by Ian O'Toole, Merv is a tense economic game charting the rise and fall of what was once the greatest city in the world. Through trade and politics players build their wealth and power, but it could all come to nothing if they do not defend the city against the approaching Mongol hordes.
