Merchants of Amsterdam

RRP: £32.99
Our Price: £28.99

This game takes you back to 17th century Amsterdam when the city flourished as a center for world trade. Ships from Amsterdam sailed the seven seas and returned home bringing valuable goods from all over the world, where they sold the goods profitably.

The proliferation of these goods and profits brought many people to Amsterdam, expanding the city exponentially. The success of the merchants of Amsterdam encouraged the growth of the arts as well and brought the world artists like Rembrandt. Against this background, each player takes the role of one of the powerful merchant families. Each tries to increase their profits through investments in the commodity market, building warehouses in Amsterdam, and opening trade offices in the colonies. The mayor wields special powers, but the office changes hands constantly. Thus, players should make good use of those powers when they have them.

Number of players: 3-5
Age of players: 10+
Length: 90 minutes
