In Merchants Cove there is an exciting time track mechanism that will challenge each player to juggle between controlling the market and running the most efficient shop.

As players spend hours performing tasks and moving up the clock, they will also be influencing a dynamic market, which evolves as boats and piers fill with customers. It might be tempting to rush ahead and have more control over which customers visit the markets—but the trade-off is that you may risk not having enough time to meet the growing demands for your goods!

Read update #11

In Merchants Cove, players don’t necessarily need to understand how other merchants function to meaningfully interact with them. 

Any merchant can play against any other merchant (including expansion merchants) at any player count (including solo mode)!
