Battle Merchants: New Kingdoms

Note: this requires the Battle Merchants base game to play!

Battle Merchants is an economic strategy game in a fantasy world where the players are arms merchants selling weapons to all sides of the same war. Who wins the war doesn't matter; the richest player at the end of the game wins!

New Kingdoms is an expansion to Battle Merchants. It is a new set of Kingdom Cards that completely replaces the base Kingdom Cards. These cards contain all sorts of interesting characters, like Dragons, Bards, Sorcerors, Kobolds, Necromancers, and two halves of a Broken Ring, that present players with new and interesting challenges.

"Battle Merchants successful merges an economic game into a fantasy theme that, in my opinion, fits it really well. The artwork is great, the game play is balanced and overall we just had fun with it. I think anyone who is a fan of eurogames should give this one a try. It’s something different and will keep you glued to the board for the whole if its 90 minute play time. The games easy to learn rules and minimal down time will also make it easy to get to your table often." - Board Game Quest

"Battle Merchants is a deceptively rich game about money management. Players may not be directly involved with the demands of the game’s warring factions, but there’s still plenty of room for conflict all the same. The game’s unique arms merchant theme works on two distinct levels: both as a refreshingly different style to economic games and a proper representation of who the players are portraying... the combination of flavor and mechanics that this middleweight game brings makes Battle Merchants a worthwhile addition to a player’s gaming arsenal." - Cardboard Republic (Battle Merchants was Cardboard Republic's Indie Game Spotlight for September 2014)

"I think Battle Merchants is a charmingly-themed, mechanically streamlined game that fires up my entrepreneurial spirit. It plays in around 90 minutes and gives players a very satisfying sense of strategic freedom; every time I play I'm able to think about how I want to approach THIS game, and how to react to other players' actions, rather than being railroaded down one strategic route. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go hawk this backpack full of rusty forks to a gang of belligerent merfolk." - An Even Weirder Review

"Battle Merchants is the rare economic game that does not feel like a spreadsheet. The theme is plastered all over this game and the board is colorful and fun to look at... Battle Merchants keeps the main mechanics simple and easy to understand and the more you play the more layers are added. I really enjoyed this game a lot and it might be one of my favorite games. This could be a great gateway to mid range economic game. The game never felt stale and never felt boring. Even though I knew we were playing an economic game, it never felt like it. That is a huge plus for most players... Keeper" - The Purge

"You will never have so much fun fostering warfare! 95%" - Throat Punch Games

We have enjoyed our first play of the base game PnP. Now I have printed out these files and I have a question and a suggestion.

First why is the new Craft Tracker chopped up into 4 pieces to put back together?

Second, it would be nice if there was some little mark on the cards to show that these are from the expansion to tell them apart and be able to separate them from the base game if you mix them.

Thanks for the game!

I see now that the Craft Tracker is only out of order on one side.. I still don't understand why but that is not a problem..

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
