About

Designed by Aigar Alaveer ("Lembitu", "1918: Death on the Rails"), Dwarven Traders is a light, colourblind friendly, economy game with a unique double-sided action card mechanics for 1 to 4 players with easy-to-learn rules and exciting tactical gameplay, all in 30-60 minutes. Check out the rulebook to learn more. 

You can play with the gorgeous coloured gems or the cardboard tokens. We thought it was important to ensure the game was colourblind friendly so we've added cardboard tokens with the images on too!
 
During your turn, you'll choose a trading card from the four available cards.
You can then take a MINE A GEM actionSELL A GEM action or perform BOTH actions. (In any order) 
After each action, gem prices change according to information on the selected trading card and the trading card is flipped over.

MINE A GEM - You'll receive a gem from the stock corresponding to the gem displayed on the trading card, and then store it on your player board. After this has happened, gem prices will change.

SELL A GEM - You can sell a gem! You'll sell a coloured gem from your player board that matches the gem on the trading card. You'll then move forward (or backward) on the score track and that gem price changes.
