In Merchants of Muziris, a card game for two, players are merchants at the supplier gathering goods to sell on their stands.
Each card is one of ten different goods and features a scoring set & special ability. The supply features 4 face up good cards each turn. On a player’s turn, they may use two characters to perform actions:
The Merchant: Add a card from the supply to their hand.
The Advisor: Use the Special Ability of a card in the supply.
The Beggar: Draw cards.
The Customer: Make an order using the goods in their hand.
A player may not use the same character twice in a single turn.
When the game ends (after a certain number of orders have been made), players score points for their sales, as well as any other bonuses they have received.
