Players: 3–6 / Ages: 8+ / Play Time: 45 min
In the bustling market of Byzanz, bundles of goods are available to savvy merchants. Bid for the best bundles, catch a deal at the main market, and find the right moment to sell the goods you have collected! You are a merchant in the Byzantine market participating in auctions for bundles of goods.
In every round, each player will win exactly one auction by offering cards from their hand. The winner of an auction must place their bid into the market. When a player has a set of three identical goods, they may sell them in the market, keeping the highest-valued card as profit. The game ends when all the goods cards have been auctioned, and the player with the highest profit is the winner.
Byzanz has received numerous awards and nominations, including the 2009 Golden Geek Best Card Game Nominee, 2009 Fairplay À la carte Winner, and a Seal of Excellence from the Dice Tower (here’s the review). The upcoming version will have the same interior game design but with an updated box cover featuring art from Doris Matthäus.
“Lautapelit has been creating intriguing and relevant games, including Honshu, that we have really come to love,” states Scott Gaeta, President of Renegade Game Studios. “Byzanz is a great example of their elegant and strategic games that pack a big punch for a small box. We look forward to sharing it with our fans.”
