Board Game Quest has posted up a review of Battle Merchants by Minion Games.
From the article:
Neville Chamberlain was famously quoted in saying: “In war, whichever side may call itself the victor, there are no winners, but all are losers.” Unfortunately for Neville he’s wrong. Everyone knows that the real winners in war are the weapons dealers, because at the end of the day, money is king.
So it’s with that in mind that we look at the new economic game Battle Merchants, by Minion Games. In an unrelated confession, I really want to call the game Merchants of Battle, as a throwback to the underrated Nicholas Cage movie Lords of War. But back on topic, Battle Merchants is an economic game where players take on the role of arms dealers supplying weapons to various warring factions. Can this fantasy themed game of wheeling and dealing make you feel like a Lord of War? Read on!
Battle Merchants is an economic, fantasy themed game for 2-4 players that plays in about 90 minutes. Battle Merchants plays best with 3-4 players.
