Hello can anyone post some reviews that have played this game? I am trying to get information if this game should be my next purchase. It sounds like like Rosenberg's new game Mercadors. Is it similar?
I think you will have few reviews of this game because the gameplay is identical to Die Handler (which is over 12 years old) save 2 differences:
1. The special abilities are auctioned off during the game, as opposed to dealt out or auctioned off before play starts.
2. There are 6 more (3 each of 2 different) privilege cards.
As such, I would urge you to check out the reviews of Die Handler.
Also, as someone who has played both, I can say that Merkator isnt really anything like Die Handler, save the pick up and deliver theme/genre. This game is more confrontational and has some negotiation. Merkator is much more about action efficiency and timing. I rate both an 8 though!
Hope that helps.
