When using fish, the card states that 4 fish are used to buy a resource. What is the cost, in fish, of a commodity?

You cannot buy commodities using fish.

  • If you discard 3 fish, you may draw one card from the hand of one of your opponents (Resource or Commodity Card).
  • If you discard 4 fish, you may take resource card but not a commodity.
  • The following applies also for the combination with Cities & Knights: Fish are no resources – and no commodities. This implies that fish are never affected by Progress Cards, particularly not by the yellow Progress Cards.
