Cover from Riga: a richly dressed merchant in front of a Riga church under constructionRiga

This is a neat, quick-playing card game set in the medieval city of Riga. Players are traders vying to expand around the Baltic Sea from their base in the city. They draft sets of ‘commodity’ cards to provide the resources they need to play building cards in four other cities.

The twist is that, while there is a standard value for each commodity, some of them have a premium value, depending on the specific building they’re being used for. The aim is thus to make the most efficient use of the cards by collecting goods that are worth more for the buildings you hold and buildings that are cheaper for the goods you hold.

However, your buildings also provide special abilities to help you. After a set number of rounds, the player with the most valuable buildings wins, after subtracting points for any buildings still in their hand. It's clever and not too demanding.

For 2-4 players, aged 10+, taking 40-60 minutes to play: £10.00 (£8.33 without tax outside the EU)
