What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“After years of working on the game, we are at a point where we would like to involve players in setting the course of further development, both in deciding what new features to add and in finalizing existing ones. Although the game is playable and all major features are implemented, most of them we do not consider finished yet and there are several areas that are in need of more work and especially player feedback.
For these reasons, we feel this is a good time to make an early access release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We can't yet give an estimation for the final release date. While we still have a list of bugs to fix and additions to make that will take at least several months to complete, the final release date will also heavily depend on the feedback we receive from players during the early access period.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We do not plan to make fundamental changes to core gameplay elements, however we would like to present a more complete and polished experience for the release version.

While all major features are implemented, none of it is set in stone. At this stage, we are open to updating existing features or adding new ones based on player feedback.

Some things we definitely plan to work on is better support for high-DPI screens with a dedicated "high resolution" interface mode, fixing various gameplay bugs, and improvements to the multiplayer server code. Please note that we will likely have updates breaking savegame compatibility, though we will make older versions available for download.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Fully playable with all major features (single player with AI, puzzles, hotseat multiplayer, network multiplayer) implemented, but further testing, bugfixing and changes based on player feedback are still need to be done.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“No, the game will always be free to play.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Players can directly talk with the developers either using the Steam community forums or our Discord server (https://discord.gg/Fb9UDfh). Besides fixing bugs reported by players, we are also looking for suggestions for new features or improvements to the existing ones. The source code of the game is also freely available, so technically minded players are even able to contribute directly to development.”

About This Game

Welcome to the Lost Bazaar

If you are in dire need for the scales of justice, a polylingual dictionary, or maybe a flyswatter to deal with those pesky efreets, you are not going to find it in your average store. Come to the Lost Bazaar - the interdimensional market where merchant-princes are selling enchanted objects for an almost honest price. In this game, you are impersonating one such aspiring merchant, trying to make a fortune at every opportunity. However, the laws of supply and demand are harsh, and many would-be lords who tried to claim a piece of the pie have fallen into poverty since the Bazaar first opened its gates. In order to stay in business, you must turn the powers of your wares against the competition!


What do you wish to play today?

Lost Bazaar is a point-accumulating board game/card game hybrid, where 2 to 4 players fight for the dominance of advantageous tiles with cards drawn from a single, common deck. Play online or hotseat against other players, and choose from more than 20 boards and premade decks. Alternatively, you can show the AI opponent that humankind is still superior, or if you seek peace and enlightenment, challenge yourself with one of the devious puzzles.


Wheels will be turning

The gameplay bears a resemblance to the mechanics seen in trading card games, but there is a twist. Because you do not build a deck solely for yourself, you cannot plan and enforce your strategy on others. Instead, you rely on your creativity to find combos on the fly, and make elaborate traps with whatever junk you managed to obtain. As the number of items on the board is going up, so does the difficulty to keep up with the plans.


We hope you like cards...

There are a grand total of 69 beautifully illustrated item cards, ranging from seemingly mundane household objects to antique trinkets, all with a different ability to aid your cause. Some are just pretty and sell well, while others can move, wreck, turn upside down or otherwise manipulate the rest of the cast. So don your hard hat, pack your hourglass and keep an eraser in your pockets, since you'll need to be prepared for anything!


The only thing you'll be grinding is coffee

While gradually building a card collection is definitely exhilarating, getting repeatedly beaten by cards you do not have is not. Lost Bazaar is devoted to the principle that all players get access to all the gameplay-affecting content from the very beginning. It is for free, but you can haggle!
