First of many updates, detail on the trading phase

We hope everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend and gave thanks to service men and women that have given their lives to defend freedom throughout the world. It has been a quiet weekend but we have many new developments planned to share this week!

We have received some great feedback on the trading phase. This is one of the aspects of Alpha Colony that our team is most excited about because we believe it will result in some interesting short-term/long-term tradeoff choices and that is often at the heart of what makes these games fun.

Many of you had questions and asked for further explanation so our game design intern, Cooper, has put together a video that explains how the trading will work in much greater detail.

What do you think?

      Just the silent auction, as it will also work well with the asynchronous play mode.

      Is there actual trading between players during this phase as well, or just the silent auction?
