The Tavern is unlocked by purchasing it in the Tier 2 Town Hall upgrades once the Thief has been found in the Prison.
You may purchase drinks you have found in the Tower or Pyramid to gain special buffs to aid you on your journey.
Upgrading the Tavern will allow you to increase you drink limit per run to 3, 4, or 5 and also increases the maximum drink storage in the Tavern.
Thief and Gambling
Once you rescue the Thief from the Prison and unlock the first tier of the Tavern, you will be allowed gamble.
Gambling is a simple card flipping game where the highest card number wins. A draw will result in the 'house' winning and the 'Spike Trap' card is a Joker and will win any hand.
