This mechanic requires you to place a bid, usually monetary, on items in an auction of goods in order to enhance your position in the game. These goods allow players future actions or improve a position. The auction consists of taking turns placing bids on a given item until one winner is established, allowing the winner to take control of the item being bid on. Usually there is a game rule that helps drop the price of the items being bid on if no players are interested in the item at its current price.
The primary goal of a set collection mechanic is to encourage a player to collect a set of items.
One of the best board game expansions I have ever played. Definitely a top 5 or higher. If you like Isle of Skye, and want more, this is amazing!
More of the same of the base game. Doesn't change it up all that much, unlike Journeyman which mutated it into something more than it should.
I have rated this expansion higher than the base game because I think it adds to the game without interfering. It is just an opportunity to buy another tile, many with additional end game goals. It makes it a little tougher for others to know what you are looking for.
