Prerequisites: Main Building level 3, Warehouse level 1, Granary level 1

At the marketplace you can trade resources with other players. The higher its level, the more resources can be transported at the same time. 

When you enter the marketplace, you will see there are 4 sections which you can choose from:


The management section shows you an overview of your marketplace. Here you can:

  • view how many free merchants are available
  • view how many merchants you have offering resources
  • view how many merchants are on their way to or from other villages
  • trade resources with the NPC Merchant
  • view and manage Trade Routes (only available after purchasing Gold Club)

Send Resources

The Send Resources section allows you to send resources to other villages. To send resources to another village, you first must fill out the form with the following information:

  • how many of each resource you want to send
  • the village name or coordinates of the village you want to send the resources to. Please note that different villages can all have the same name. Because of this, when sending resources by entering a village's name, it is easy to send resources to the wrong village by mistake. It is recommended that you enter a village's coordinates when sending resources rather than the village's name.
  • how many times you want your merchants to repeat this shipment. This option is only available with a Plus account or after purchasing Gold Club.

Once the form has been filled out with this information, you may click the green "Ok" button. You will then be asked to check and make sure your trade looks correct. If you need to fix something, click the green "Edit" button. Otherwise, click "Confirm" to send the merchants.


The Buy section allows you to buy (or accept) trade offers from other players. Each offer listed contains the following information:

  • amount of resources being offered to you
  • the ratio of resources searched from you to the number being offered to you
  • amount of your resources being searched for
  • the pribe and name of the player who made the offer
  • the duration (or time) it takes for their merchants to arrive at your village

You also have the option of filtering the available offers by:

  • what the seller is offering
  • what the seller is searching for
  • the ratio for the trade

To accept an offer, click on the green "Accept offer" button next to the offer. Please be careful and make sure you are accepting the right offer, as the trade is automatically started as soon as the button is clicked.

Please note that you must have enough resources and merchants in order to accept any offers. You will not be able to accept an offer where you have too few resources or merchants.


The Sell section allows you to place your own offers on the marketplace for other players to accept. In order to place your offers, you must fill out the form with the following information:

  • the number and the type of resources you are offering
  • the number and type of resources you are searching for
  • (optional) you may set a maximum transport time for merchants. If you don't want your merchant(s) to be on the way for days, you should set the maximum time.
  • (optional) you may only offer this trade to others in your alliance


Remember that when sending or receiving resources, there is a limit to a player's storage capacity. If they receive more resources than they can store, anything above that is lost and cannot be retrieved.

The merchants for each tribe move at different speeds and carry different amounts of resources. The following table contains the speed and carrying capacity for each tribe's merchants:

  Romans Gauls Teutons
Speed in Fields/Hour 16 24 12
Merchant's capacity 500 750 1000

The level dependent attributes (such as construction costs and generated culture points) can be found here.
