Scarborough Fair

Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme
Scarborough Fair is a resource selling game for 2-4 players. Players will buy and sell four resources; Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme. They will set the prices that they sell each resource at, place Merchants in tents and buy Victory Points to give them the lead. But the customer is a shrewd shopper so don’t raise your prices too high or you’ll be left holding resources that you can’t sell. Pick the prime locations, corner a market or undercut your opponents to win.

Scarborough Fair is not a complicated game to learn and is fairly quick to play, but it has enough strategy to keep more seasoned gamers interested. It's a great game for anyone.
