Bargain Quest is a game of capitalism and adventure for 2-6 players. Players take the role of shopkeepers in an adventuring town plagued by monsters. Players must draft items and then secretly pick which items to place in their windows to attract wealthy heroes to their shops.
Once all the heroes have been equipped, they venture out to battle against monstrous threats, earning money and prestige for the shop they represent. Throughout the game players encounter new heroes and monsters while upgrading their shops and hiring employees. Once the third monster is defeated the player who has earned the most gold and prestige wins the game.
