Foundation How to Trade


Welcome, visitors. In this guide, you will learn how to Trade in the Foundation game. So we pick up many pieces of information from several sites for you. We hope that this guide will help you. If you want to learn basics of the Foundation game, please click here.


You will receive a quest at the beginning where you have to make the first trade, just follow the instructions. Later you can unlock 2 more trade routes. The trader come by once a week and sell and buy at your warehouses. So it’s not enough to stop selling or buying in the “trading” section, but also to free up space for the trader in the corresponding warehouses. The value you can set behind the arrows (in trade goods) means the NUMBER of the goods (example: berries, purchase up to 50 = you buy up to 50 berries from the trader). You can’t influence the prices, because they are determined by the trade routes (you can see them under neighbouring cities at trade).

To be able to complete the tasks with x berries/fish etc., the goods must be available in a warehouse so that you can click on the green check mark (top left task field).

You can click on the trader who come by. This allows you to see which goods he wants to buy or sell and in what quantity.

Splendor & unlocking of buildings
There are three areas where you can unlock something: Labor, Kingdom & Clergy. You will need a certain number of villagers with a certain status, a certain splendor and influence points in each area. Influence can be gained by completing the tasks/quests that sometimes appear (e.g. 30 berries for the clergy etc. pp). You’ll get splendor when you build certain buildings, but you’ll see how much splendor you get when you build each part.
