Days of Wonder announces Corinth

Days of Wonder has announced their next big-box game:

Under a blazing sun in 4th Century BC Corinth, traders come from all corners of the Mediterranean Sea to sell their goods; Persian carpets, Cretan olive oil, Roman grapes, Egyptian spices are highly prized by traders.

In each round of Corinth, a handful of dice are rolled and players take turns selecting groups of dice to deliver goods to shops, purchase herds of goats or visit the market, recording their progress on their notepads. In this game, you will need to pay close attention to what your opponents are doing and choose between taking the best option for you or making sure your opponents don’t get theirs…

Corinth is DoW take on the popular Roll-and-write genre. Release date for Europe is sometime in March, details for the UK have not been announced yet.
