Welcome to the world of Adventure Capitalism! As managers of competing Adventure Mart convenience stores, only one thing matters to your CEOs; get as much gold as possible! Hire staff, purchase store upgrades and new stock, and sell incredible items to all manner of fantastical visitors... Just make sure you don’t get sent to the abyss! 2-4 Players, Age 10+, 45-60 Minutes.
How to Play
Adventure Mart sees players taking control of their own AM-branded convenience stores, battling to sell fantasy weaponry and magical goods to a variety of customers who visit your town over the course of five rounds, each representing a day. The perfect introduction to deck-building games, players will cycle through cards that they buy with profits made by selling items. However, each Adventurer can only buy from one store, so you will have to outbid your opponents with lucrative offers. Just remember that there’s only so much money in each visitor’s bag! Can you become the most successful manager in town?
Join Michael from Hub Games for a crash course in store management, straight from the Adventure Mart handbook!
While each store manager begins the game with exactly the same stock, represented by a set of nine cards, the selection available to you will quickly become unique. Players can choose to focus on a particular type of item, or build around those supplied by different companies. A streamlined, approachable set of rules means that whether you’re buying new items, hiring staff or trying to tempt a wandering Adventurer into your store, the quick pace of the game will always remain. Couple this with a beautiful aesthetic throughout and you’re guaranteed to enjoy this game, whether you prefer to play in a family friendly atmosphere or something more cut-throat. Adventure Mart truly offers something to all kinds of gamers.

Why is this a Game with HEART?
Hub Games strives to make games as approachable and accessible as possible. Every title we release has been considered not only because we like how it feels to play, but also how it makes the players feel both during and after the game. Adventure Mart works perfectly as an entry-level game for those new to deck building and bidding mechanisms, yet still provides enough for experienced players seeking a challenge. This mixing of accessible rules, light but fun gameplay and utterly delightful art means that we are delighted to add this game with heart to our portfolio.
The Brains Behind This Game
These are the people involved in creating this game and what they wanted to say about it
Sam, Game Design
Working with everyone on Adventure Mart was a fantastic experience. Not just making the game, but exploring the boundaries and rules of the setting we created together. I hope that everyone who plays it experiences some of the world beyond the cards.
Adventure Mart is the perfect smoothie of all the things I love: tasty food, convenience stores, animal people and goofy fantasy. It was a pleasure coming up with the art style and working with the super talented team!
It was a pleasure to work on Adventure Mart with the amazing DigiSprite team. The artstyle Stef created is so cute, fun and vibrant and I had a blast working on it! I'm really looking forward to seeing people play the game!
It was our goal at DigiSprite to create a shopkeeper fantasy board game unlike any other. Inspired by modern east-asian culture, a parody on capitalism and turning the traditional deckbuilder on its head for a more consistently interactive experience. Bringing that all together with Stef and Moniek's fantastic and adorable art, we've been able to create something that we're all really proud of.
Winnie, Graphic Design
A super fun management game filled with cute fantastical products. I mean who wouldn't want a "Dragonberry Blast" or "Pocket Dragon". Our first deck builder for Hub Games, with 185 individual cards using data merge via indesign to build the deck was definitely a new learning curve. Bring on the localised versions!
When we first saw Adventure Mart we knew it had the 'something special' to join the Hub Games range. We love the humour in classic adventurers visiting modern convenience stores to buy their supplies. The heart of this game is in the player interaction and in the simple joy of running your very own Adventure Mart.
