Phase 1: Exploration

This phase is enacted at the start of the minting period
At first, the map will be unexplored and players will not be able to see special tiles hidden in the map. Players will only be able to see Hextiles that other players have put down.
The majority of the map will be unexplored as new players are coming in, building up and expanding their land. As such, the demand for and scarcity for materials and Land are sky high. As it will be mostly free to claim a grid space with a Hextile, there will be low demand for grid spaces.
