About

Adventure Mart is a deckbuilding store management game set in a modern, high fantasy world where 2-4 players compete to create the wealthiest store. Sell powerful and exotic Stock to a host of strange and diverse Customers and hire unique and talented Employees to help you out!

Completely impartial secret shoppers say that Adventure Marts are the most convenient and well stocked stores you'll find anywhere in the multiverse, and they're always exactly where you need them. 

Each player takes on the role of an Adventure Mart Manager setting up shop in a new town near the latest dungeon to be uncovered. Here they will be competing for the custom of adventurers from the local guilds.

But don't get too comfortable! Adventure Marts never stay open for long. They pop up where they're needed, make as much money as they can and then move on to a new location. This means you'll only have a week to outperform your competition before your store is liquidated!

Each game of Adventure Mart typically takes 5 turns (or ‘Days’) and this is how it works!

First things first, each player gets a Store Board and the central “Town” board is placed in the middle of the table, then each of the game’s four main decks are shuffled:

  •  The Depot Deck, which contains new Stock and Fixtures for your Store.
  •  The HR Deck, which contains a variety of Employees that you can Summon.
  •  The Customer Deck, which contains Adventurers and Thieves.
  •  The Event Deck, that gives all players a different twist or challenge each day.

Next, each player gets a set of ‘Basic Stock’ that sets the foundations of their personal Stockroom Deck, which will be drawn from and added to throughout the game. Along with 5 Gold each, as an initial investment in their store.

Now you're set up! The rest of the game follows a 3-Phase loop each day...

 THE OPENING PHASE

Each day begins with players drawing a fresh hand of Stock from their Stockrooms and checking out the Morning News. This is represented by collectively drawing an Event Card that represents what’s happening in Town that day. There could be a rogue Djinn on the loose, or it could simply be Payday and everyone has a little more to spend in your Mart. Then the Town Board fills up with Customers to Bid on, Stock Cards to Buy and Employees to Hire.

THE SHOPPING PHASE

Each player takes a turn doing one of the following actions:

  • You can Order new Stock for your Store.
  • You can Hire a new Employee.
  • You can Activate an Ability on one of your cards.
  • Or you can attempt to win over a Customer and Make a Sale! 

Making Sales is the most important aspect of the game, it’s your greatest source of Gold. You begin by flipping over a face-down Customer, and seeing what types of Stock they are looking for. Then you and your opponents begin bidding Stock Cards to that Customer. 

Typically, the Player who presents the collection of highest Quality items that the Customer wants wins the Sale, but some Employee and Fixture cards can help sway their coin purses in your direction. Be careful though, some Customers might actually be members of the nefarious Thieves Guild, out for Gold and Glory all for themselves!

After the final customer has completed their purchase (or Tiamat forbid, left empty handed), it's time to close up for the day.

THE CLOSING PHASE

Each player cleans up their Store by discarding any unsold Stock, and if you didn’t perform so well, T-Corp may send you a Free Employee that can aid you in the next day. 

Get a good night’s sleep, Manager! The next day is about to begin!

We will be working with shipping and fulfilment partners in different areas of the world to ensure smooth delivery of all backer rewards. Shipping costs will be collected after the campaign via a pledge management partner. Below you can find a list of estimated shipping costs based on location.

We will be able to provide Friendly Shipping to all green highlighted areas. Red highlighted areas will be shipped from outside the country/region and therefore may incur some additional customs/duty fees. For yellow highlighted/unlisted countries/"Rest of World" we can't guarantee these will be friendly.

If you have any questions about shipping to your country please just send us a message and we'll be happy to answer them for you.

Adventure Mart is brought to you by DigiSprite. We are a 3-person Independent Tabletop Games Studio working out of Dundee, Scotland. We have a combined background in professional Video Game & Tabletop Game production, development and design.

The Lead Artist for the project is @stefscribbles, working with @monschi_art.

As Adventure Mart has been heavily inspired by aspects of East Asian and Scandinavian culture, we worked with a professional cultural consultant, carried out general cultural sensitivity reviews and had a professional translator provide the correct Katakana translation for Adventure Mart (as seen in the main logo).

All art costs for the project have been covered personally by the team to get us to this point. Our campaign funding goal will recoup these costs and get Adventure Mart to print and into your hands!

Adventure Mart is our second tabletop release, with our first shipping to backers in January/February 2019 after a very successful Kickstarter campaign. With the support of the Tabletop community, we know we can get another fun game out there!

Risks and challenges

As with all Tabletop Games projects, there are a variety of risks involved, such as shipping delays and manufacturing issues.

However, as a team with a previously successful project, which shipped on time and within budget, we have very carefully planned this campaign and all associated costs and timelines.

We will be working with a trusted manufacturer and shipping/fulfilment partners so that we and our backers can be confident in the quality and condition of all rewards.

At DigiSprite we believe in transparency and realistic goals/stretch goals. As such, there are no guesses or deceptive figures here - everything has been based on quotes from trusted and reputable manufacturers and shipping partners.

Finally, bar some art assets, Adventure Mart is entirely finished - it is a fully fleshed out, playtested and ready-to-print game, not just an idea.
