Arler Erde

Tee & Handel


In the fields of Arle you raise flax or grain, breed animals, cut peat, build dikes and gain new land, you do forestry or manage a fleet of vehicles or a crafts shop or a pub. In nine half years - summer and winter alternate - you expand your village. In the quiet time you position workers, use them in the work period and then score your possessions. Each half-year offers 15 different areas, that is, cases of action; each such action area can only be occupied and used by one worker; you pay for the action, if necessary, and implement it instantly. Vehicles move once in a half-year; Tideland must be transformed into agricultural land by building dikes.

Tea in Tee & Handel is a new resource that is provided by the new green buildings or the building of a trade ship and using it to swap food for tea. Tea can be upgraded to East Frisian Tea and spent to boost actions, A new craftsman action is Schlootziehen for the construction of drainage ditches and is also available from some buildings; drained fields can be used in three different ways. The actions Segelmacher and Boat Builder let you place cutters or trade ships on your harbor board. Cutters that are not completely used to upgrade goods, set sail for fishing. Unused cases on trade ships are used for trading. With this expansion, you can also play Arler Erde with three players, as it comes with a complete set of components for a 3rd player.

This expansion allows for new strategies and introduces variety with the new buildings; not only Tea as new resource, but also Schloote - with allowing to turn over swamp tiles - provide new options. An absolutely recommendable expansion!
