The Farmers Market
Only the sharpest minds and the strongest bonds will prevail when it comes time to trade at the farmers' market. This networking-based game of alliances, strategy, and relationships is easy to understand but a genuine challenge to conquer. All that remains to be seen is if your team has what it takes to come out on top at the end of trading!
Each team takes on the identity of a new farm hoping to make their fortune and trade their way to wealth at the markets. Provided with goods to trade (items such as timber/wool / green stone/candles / flowers etc), and limited information (about themselves, other teams, and the fluctuating values of their goods), teams must maximise their returns across the 4 years of trading available to them.
At the end of each year of trading, there are payouts for specific goods to those who are lucky enough to hold them in possession. The ultimate currency however will always be information – it’s how and when you use it that will determine your wealth at the end of the day. Get ready to round up your team and head to town to stake your claim at the Farmers Market!
