For some small box strategy, reach for The Trader’s Tale – sharpen your trading tactics with this 2 – 4 player game of worker placement and resource management.

Each player has a Wizard with a roster of adventurers that they need to hire to win the game. The adventurers each have a different cost to hire.

Players place their Wizard and 2 assistants around the board and trade on the Merchant areas to buy and sell resources at the market rate.

Once they have enough resources, it’s off to the tavern to hire the adventurer they need for their party.

Only the Wizard with the most of a resource when the price peaks will get to choose which adventurers are available, so trade carefully.
