Craft Your Fortune!
Mystic Market is an exciting fast-paced card game where players buy and sell magical Potion-making Ingredients. The unique Value Track ensures that the Ingredients’ values will be constantly shifting, so only the shrewdest of traders will prevail.
“Mystic Market is a small, fun market game similar to titles such as Jaipur, but best at its full player count of 4. The game comes with a really cool, 3D value track that very tactilely keeps track of how much different mystical ingredients are worth. You play the game by collecting ingredients from the central marketplace in order to sell off sets to make a profit; however, opponents can sell an incomplete set of an ingredient they know you're collecting for no money and force the entire value track to reshuffle. Whoever has collected the most coinage by the end of the game wins, and the game ends when the last ingredient card is drawn from the draw deck. On your turn you can buy, swap, or sell cards; you may only do one of these three things along with crafting any potions for which you have the proper ingredients. Potions can be powerful boosts to your coin flow, so be sure to keep any eye on which ones enter the market.
Who is this for? Anyone looking for a fast market game with an element of take that!
Who is this not for? If you usually only play with two people, then I recommend looking at Jaipur instead because Mystic Market is pretty imbalanced at two players in my experience."
