In the late Middle Ages, the Canary Islands had faded into obscurity from a European point of view. There was neither gold nor silver and the islands did not play a role as a trading post because the north-south trade of that time went through the Sahara.

In 1312 the Genoese merchant and seafarer, Lancelotto Malocello, effectively "rediscovered" the Canary Islands. During the 15th century the archipelago was conquered by the Spanish. The new Spanish masters pushed agriculture, cultivating sugar can, wine and grain, which quickly gave the islands a certain economic value and importance.

In West of Africa the players cultivate goods, try to sell them profitably and build settlements. Each player has their own deck of cards. Each turn the players select cards from their decks and then try to conduct successful actions, always keeping the actions of the other players in mind.
