Dale of Merchants 3 is a stand-alone game which introduces 6 new animalfolk decks. It can be played by itself. However, it is even better when combined with other games from the Dale of Merchants series.

Each deck is themed around different animalfolks with a different gameplay focus and mechanics. For example, Sharing Short-beaked Echidnas borrow cards from other players while Prepared Grizzled Tree-kangaroos are good at protecting their own valuables.

Dale of Merchants 3 has been released in multiple languages. The list of languages can be found from the series page.

Every Dale of Merchants game, except the Beaver expansion, is a stand-alone product and a good starting point to the series. They do not require the earlier games in order to be playable. However, all games in the series are fully compatible with each other. Decks and other elements can be freely combined across the games for increased gameplay depth and variability.

My main design goal with Dale of Merchants was to create a simple yet deep deck building game which could be adapted to suit your or your game groups' preferences.

Development assistance

We want all games in the Dale of Merchants series to share a similar feel. What to include in illustrations and in flavour texts play a large role in achieving this.

I love to draw small details in my illustrations in order to build a rich world. Bringing all these pieces to life and making them unforgettable – that's something I leave for the player.

World building

I see games as an art form. Much like a movie or an oil painting, a game can rise beyond mere pastime, encompassing whole worlds and evoking thoughts and emotions.
