Vegetable stock is a cute little card game with commodity speculation. It is our go-to filler game right now. My family really likes it
Excellent game. Resource management, bidding. Balanced by meta, as the “national factions” are asymmetrical in what their aims are in scoring cards. Light negotiation elements where you are trying to get others to “scratch your back and vice versa”.
Simple player turns/mechanics
Cons: be aware of end game scoring rules especially the flag and non flag tokens. Also military region is a bit difficult to conceptually understand but a couple play through a should clear it up.
It’s just a replacement set of cards. Not the alternate graphic set of cards. Photo would have helped.
