The Market is a social type buildings to build worth 2 points with a great ability. It’s worth an extra 2 points if you have 3 blue-bordered commerce buildings built by the end of the game. Commerce buildings are among the cheapest buildings in the game but it’s still a big commitment. In a typical game you will have 7-9 buildings at the end of the game, which means you have less room to branch into other strategies. However, those 2 points are worth it so the real question is what cards work best with it. Look for commerce buildings that give you back resources such as the Harbour or Treasury. Cheap 1 point commerce buildings also work if you build the Farm or the Courtyard. Then there’s the Bank if you’re really lucky. I’ll talk about those cards in future posts.
Fellipe did a fantastic job bringing the area to life with characters and buildings you might see on other cards. It’s one of the cards we really spent a lot of time making great.
