I have an idea about adding a little play card that would be placed in front of the players shield where during round turns you could place cubes, money, and/or tokens on resources you were looking for.

What do you guys think?
Just getting thoughts on this idea.

Honestly, it's not very useful. It's substantially inferior to the freeform trading that now goes on. It also telegraphs far too much information, too openly, and dissuades bidding wars.

How would I:

Offer a wood for either a stone or a cow? (and I only have 1)
Offer 3 cubes for 2 Stone, but none for a single one?
Offer an explore token for any 2 cubes?

...and so on.

Trading is quick, and dynamic, and if half the players used this, and half not, the ones using it would lose out to verbal trades. If everyone used it you all lose out.
