interesting mechanic with buying and selling goods with the merchant and buying and delivering messages for the points with the messenger. Money management is very important, like it a lot

Need to play it more, but for now we like it enough to keep it part of the collection

saw the video at the geek and had to buy it, nice tactical card game with 2 or 3 players

played it several times, put up for trade and got a nice kosmos two-player game in return, which I prefer over brawling barons, still a nice game though

so the base game was around 35 at spiel, the expansion was around 30. Got to a deal including both for only 39,00 couldn't leave it for that kind of money

I found out that expansionsare not for me, with but a few exceptions. Traded away
