In Traders of the Air 2 to 4 players represent steampunk trading guilds on a planet far away, always on the lookout for an opportunity to acquire valuable goods.
Roaming the planet together in a steamship, the guilds need to set up networks of guild contracts on the planet's cities to resell the goods at the most advantageous times to increase power and prestige.
In Traders of the Air each and every action counts; the game is mechanically quite simple yet difficult to play well!
The Game is similar to Michael Schacht's famous game Hansa! This version includes an additional map, promo Hansa items, and all new Variable Guild Powers.
Traders of the Air is 2-4 player steampunk trading game where players represent trading guilds attempting to acquire and resell goods at the greatest profit.
The game can be played on two different game boards, each containing nine cities connected by arrows representing the wind. Players move between the cities purchasing goods, setting up guild contracts, and selling goods. These three actions contribute to the victory points each player has at the end of the game.
