After stopping the rampage of financial Kaiju from destroying the world in the events from <<Debtzilla>>, top scientists discovered that the biomass left behind by the now slumbering monsters is extremely valuable. It led to an explosive demand for biomass material and nations scrambled to gather and trade these materials. As the leader of a biomass production start-up, it falls upon your shoulders to secure essential biomass materials and reap the benefits of this global demand to keep the coffers flowing.

KAIJU EXCHANGE COLLECTOR'S EDITION
HOW TO PLAY
Each player has their own Player Board that starts off specializing in producing a single type 4 different biomass such as Debtzilla Egg, Inflationsaurus Crystal, Taxopus Tentacle and Ponzitron Ponzium. Your objective is to achieve economic dominance by a combination of gathering market share, production efficiency and the amount of cold hard cash you possess.
FULFILL DEMAND TO EARN MONEY AND VICTORY POINTS
Demand cards are the primary way for players to earn money. Each Demand requires a certain amount of materials to fulfill and players earn money by fulfilling these demands. If a player can fulfill 3 demand cards at the same time, the player will earn a victory point and monopolize a demand card in secret in order to trick other players in over-producing the biomass needed.
TRADE, EARN FAVORS OR ALLY WITH BANANA REPUBLIC
Other than trading with other players, you can trade with a non-player automaton: Banana Republic. However, trading too much with Banana Republic will give the country abundant amount of materials and allow Banana Republic to win the game instead. If you think Banana Republic may win, you can race to ally with the automaton and achieve a joint victory!
UNLOCK SPECIAL ABILITIES BY PRODUCTION SPECIALIZATION
Earn special abilities by specializing in the production of a certain biomass and use them to manipulate market demand, fulfill difficult but rewarding demands or monopolize demand cards which only you can fulfill.
