I have played this game several times with my kids and I found this variant to work really well for our family:

Instead of trading with the other players (because everyone is looking for the same resources and the negotiations were taking a really long time), we created a Market to trade with. The Market is 5 face up part cards that each player can choose to trade with on their turn (one card per turn). If the Market ever has three of the same part in it, the five cards are discarded and replaced from the top of the parts deck.

This made for a much more enjoyable experience when playing so I thought I would share!

We were lucky enough to meet the designer at the Lion Rampant open house. We hope things go well with this game and future games!

Wonderful idea! We just tried the market variant and it worked perfectly, it's a must. The game becomes faster, more intuitive and simple.

What a great little game for the family. It is hard to find a board game for a family of six with a Christmas Theme. Your variant really does make the game more accessible to younger children and does not take away from the whole game experience for the older children. Thank you for sharing
