We are customers visiting the Farmers Market. Some days we buy things and some days we just look. Sometimes we return stuff, too. It's up to us to decide what to buy or just look at. Each vendor must sell enough to be able to come back another day. If they don't make some money or even lose money, they will leave. So the object is to watch out for everyone's welfare. To do this well, we must discuss, plan, & problem-solve together so that everyone will enjoy some success. Lots of decision making for each player! The basic game plays quickly, with an advanced game for older players. Includes: 12 booths, 50 tokens of looking, buying and returning.Designer's Note: 'I added a random element, so each game will be different as well as exciting right to the last move.' - JimPlay as friends, not as enemies! Family Pastimes games foster the spirit of cooperation. Players help each other climb a mountain, make a community, complete a space exploration... They never play against each other. After all, the initial impulse to play a game is social; that is, we bring out a game because we want to do something together. How ironic then that in most games, we spend all our efforts trying to bankrupt someone, destroy their armies - in other words, to get rid of one another!At Family Pastimes we believe that people of different ages and abilities should be able to play side by side, each making their best contribution. We are all there together when we finish the game to take joy in our successes and wonder how we might work together even better the next time we play. Thus, Family Pastimes games will prove to be a friendly form of fun. Socialization, entertainment, academic learning, character growth, etc. - whatever your objectives, we invite you to realize them by cooperative means. We hope you enjoy playing and learning together!
