Presenting Buyer's Market, a game of bidding and pyramidal building construction designed specifically for the Pyramid Arcade, for two to four players.
It's been years since I've released new game rules, and I'm happy to have something designed especially for the Pyramid Arcade. This one uses the relationship of the Zark City cards to the new color die, and is playable with the pyramids in the box (with the requirement of a booster stash for a fourth player). Thanks to the gamers (JM, K, A, and M) who have helped over the six months this one has been under wraps.
We've playtested this with groups of two, three, or four players, but I have a feeling that it could scale up to five, so feel free to give that a try.
End of Game Example: The Black opaque player scores 25: With three complete levels, he could have had four but held back for the double regality bonus.
White scores 18: White scores a diversity bonus and complete four levels but suffers for having several pyramids that they cannot place.
The Green opaque scores 28 points: With a cohesiveness bonus, four levels, and a diversity bonus, this player is the victor.
Note the unused pyramids in the foreground and the unspent ones in the background.
