Get ready to haggle in Hafid's Grand Bazaar!

Coming September 2017
Hafids Grand Bazaar 3D Box Left Facing

We are pleased to announce Hafid’s Grand Bazaar, coming September 2017 from the creative team that brought you Element! Bid, haggle, and trade your way to the top in this raucous trading game of set collection and player negotiation for 2 to 6 players.

Acquire spices, textiles, livestock and other exotic goods by bidding on caravans from foreign markets across the ancient world. Manipulate the market – and each other – using your shrewd bargaining skills to trade with your fellow merchants and collect resource sets to maximize profits.

This game is played in a series of rounds based on the number of players. Each round consists of four phases during which players will take turns bidding on caravans, influence, and customers; collecting goods from caravans; trading and negotiating with each other to collect sets of goods; and selling their goods for maximum profit. This isn't your typical trading game, however, and player interaction can get raucous and wildly entertaining as players are encouraged to get creative in their haggling! 

The marketplace is dynamic and ever-changing. You will need to stay sharp and engaged to amass the most wealth and become the greatest merchant in Hafid’s Grand Bazaar!
