Game Instructions
  • Victory: 13 Victory Points
  • Rules: Standard


Deserts spread across the main island and grain is scarce. Fertile lands can be found on the neighboring small islands. (The main contours of the land are very similar to “Heading for New Shores”)


Use the rules of Seafarers. Include both the Robber and the Pirate, with starting placement as shown. Each players first two settlements must start on the main island. Each small island that you build at least one settlement on is worth 2 points.
