Bargain Quest combines adventure and capitalism as 2-6 players take on the role of shopkeepers in a town plagued by monsters. Players secretly draft items, which are placed in their shop windows to attract heroes to their store. Once armed, the heroes battle threats and gain prestige and gold, which is added to the item shop they had most recently visited. The player with the most gold and prestige at the end of the game is the winner. Bargain Quest is designed by Jonathan Ying (known for Star Wars: Imperial Assault) with art by Victoria Ying.
For those of you anxiously awaiting the second printing of Jonathan Ying’s Bargain Quest, you can now also look forward to a brand new expansion, too! This fun little game of adventure and capitalism will offer even more must have items for heroes to choose from.
In Bargain Quest, players take on the role of shopkeeper trying to attract adventuring heroes to their shop over their opponents. Each player will secretly draft from a deck of items to place in their shop windows and then help equip their heroes for an upcoming ad kkiventure. Players earn money to upgrade their shop and hire employees based on how their hero fares in battle.
The Black Market expansion will offer players more heroes, employees, and play modes. A new shipment of items will also be available to entice heroes to battle the new monsters.
Gather up to eight of your friends to see who can run the most successful shop with the most gold and prestige. Renegade Games will be releasing the Black Market expansion in May 2019. Don’t worry if you missed out on the Kickstarter for the base game. It will be available through Renegade Games once the Kickstarter fulfillment is completed.
In 2017 designer Jonathan Ying, of Imperial Assault fame, successfully crowdfunded Bargain Quest. Since its release Bargain Quest has garnered positive reviews. Now, the game has returned to Kickstarter for a second printing, along with a new expansion, entitled The Black Market.
Bargain Quest is a card drafting, hand management and auction game for 2-6 players. If you are a hero in need of equipment before you go out to face the monster menacing the town, where do go? In Bargain Quest the players are shopkeepers of a fantasy item shop trying to sell their wares to heroes that will be attempting to save the town from pesky monsters. Will the heroes defeat the monster? It doesn’t really matter as long as you are running a profitable business.
In addition to the reprint of the base game, the Kickstarter includes new expansion content. The Black Market expansion includes additional heroes, employees for your shop and a new deck of black market items. The black market items can be accessed by players by spending their reputation.
