Product Info


Winner of the 1st place prize at the 16th Game Authors Competition of the Hippodice Spieleclub e.V.!

As a wealthy desert sheikh, you have many needs, such as a wise advisor, a talented cook, or maybe a well-organized housekeeper? Or, maybe you seek the romance of a beautiful companion? But are you attractive enough to convince the princess to join your house and provide you with the skills you need to achieve your secret goals? Only a lucky or resourceful sheikh can hope to welcome an Emira into his palace. Because in this distant desert land, it is the princess who chooses which palace she will join!

As a desert sheikh, you will need to invest in the lucrative spice trade to furnish yourelf with the wealth to improve your appearance, enlarge your palace, and expand your status in the kingdom so that the princesses will choose you instead of another sheik. But mind your funds carefully: these independent and self-confident princesses will not stay if you cannot provide them with the life of comfort that they have come to expect!

Emira is a satirical, historically themed game about desert nobles trying to attract princesses to join their household. While we neither glorify nor recommend setting up a harem, it sure is fun to watch those sheiks try to win over the self-confident and emancipated princesses!
