Designed by Ryan Laukat (Above and Below, The Ancient World), the card-drafting worker placement game has players compete to trade with island towns and commission buildings in their capital cities. Different buildings have different abilities, and may enhance that player’s strength as a trader, builder or invader. Players can also recruit pirates and sea monsters to conquer towns rather than befriend them, and then can charge opponents fees for using their towns. The winner is determined by both wealth and having the most impressive capital city.
The game raised money on Kickstarter in 2015 and netted $88,270 from 1,628 backers ($54.22/backer average).
