Read the rules on the Bonus tiles for Essen live, the waffle crepe stand, the sausage counter, and the bonus tables....Not super clear about how those fold in to the game. Also, not really 100% on how I am supposed to use the bonus tracker on the main board.

Lastly, couldn't find the rules for the special characters on the website, would like to know how to use those characters as well.

Seems like a good game, but need more info on these items....Thank you!!!

Hello,
thank you for your interest. Here are some answers.

1. The extra spaces Live and press just give a end game bonus( is it worth the action to psend there is up to the players)
The curry wurst stand gives an option to those eager to go before other players in clean up. Or some money savings.
All and all its a slight adding of complexity, a choice between late gains or in game benefit each round.

2. "If the new level of collective sales is higher than the previous one, the big maximum sales cube is moved to match it. The maximum
sales token may only increase. If the collective sales do not increase to a new maximum then the cube does not move.
4. If there is a new, higher level of collective sales, then the level of the Bonus Track token also increases, by one level."

This means that the maximum sales cube (next to the prices for everything) moves up/down depending on what the sum of everyones sales was the previous turn compared to now.

The Bonus token(witch says the amount of end game bonus for each of the bonus types) compares it self to all previous sale collective sale sums and moves up only when a new record high is reached.

3. The bonus character info was under the main game in the webpage:

So, do the symbols by the Bonus Tracker mean anything? There is a picture of all the sales tiles, then two bar graphs? I thought that there might be something to those 3 boxes next to the bonus tracker, but it sounds like it is just decorative?

Those are reminder symbols of the three things the bonus amount is rewarded on: longest heightening run of money piles, the highest among the lowest piles of all players and the most buyers remaining in the end.
