You are a merchant in Byzantium and you are trying to have the most profit from the markets inside the city. Bid for the best stock of goods and find the right moment to sell your collected wares. And do not forget to go to the main market for a good deal!
Players are merchants and bid on offers from the market to collect as many sets of 3 cards of the same good. Game ends when all cards have been auctioned and clayers with the highest total of good cards wins. Cards are both money for bidding and points for scoring in each set sold.
