Dice Hate Me Games / Greater Than Games will release Nantucket, a two-player whaling town game, in July.

Historically Nantucket is “The Little Grey Lady of the Sea,” and players take turns building the town up during the early days of the whaling industry with a modular game board and then send out ships on whaling missions.  Players flip a coin to see if their whaling mission is a success. Play continues until the town is completely constructed, supplies run out, or all the whales have been caught.

The quick, two-player game is part of Dice Hate Me’s “Rabbit” line of games. MSRP is $9.95.

The game was funded on Kickstarter as a companion game to larger, multi-player New Bedford (see “Historic Whaling Game 'New Bedford'”).
