The marketplace. You can find anything you want, for a price. If you're a spellcaster, you know that there's all sorts of items required for your spells, potions, and incantations. Thankfully, Arcane Alley has it. And now, a new part of the market is opening up, the Moonstruck Market, which does more than just open up more goods, but also new ways to buy and sell, new wizards, and more. This new expansion is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Moonstruck Market is the first expansion for Arcane Alley, a tableau and set collection game for 2-6 players for age 10+ that plays in about 30-45 minutes.
Welcome to the black magic market! Arcane Alley is a tableau and set collection game where each player takes the role of a wizard creating and selling sets of outlawed magical items from their secret storehouse. Outsell, outsmart, and outlast the other players to make the greatest fortune, but don’t get caught by the inspectors.
The game is played over several rounds, each with 4 phases: 1) Stock your storehouse with hidden items, 2) Sell as many sets of items as you can, 3) Pass Inspection without becoming too infamous, and 4) Bribe the inspectors before you're hit with a hefty fine.
As the mysterious emerald moon hangs in the sky, Madame Moonstruck has arrived with her traveling band of werewolf merchants and carts full of unseen ghastly goods.
The Moonstruck Market expansion deepens the base game with the addition of new wizards, new items, a market for purchasing goods, more ways to create and sell sets, and new gameplay mechanics, including new effects and advancing moon phases.
Use the new items as a combined item deck with Arcane Alley base items, as their own deck, as part of one of the many included deck lists, or as a deck of your own creation, adding a ton of variety and replayability - create a new deck each game, if you wish!
The campaign's right at their funding goal with 14 days left to go.
