Through conscious choices, you as a consumer have the power to improve the world. Cheap goods are often cheap for the reason. The use of low paid labour and environmentally hazardous production pushes the prices down but also endangers our future. Will you be able to produce and trade consciously and economically for a better world?
In Fair Trade, you play both a farmer, investing in fair production, and a trader, buying fairly produced goods. You do this through secret bidding. The higher your farmer bid, the more you will earn from the trader bids. The higher your trader bid, the more fair trade markers you will earn. Most fair trade markers wins.

"Euro games" like Settlers and Tigris & Euphrates. Combining my game experience with my history
interest and IT and quality profession, I have entered the exciting world of board game design
