Alexander Pfister and Andreas Pelikan’s tile-laying /territory building game won the prestigious 2016 Kennerspiel des Jahres (see “'Spiel des Jahres' 2016 Winner Announced”). Now Isle of Skye: Journeyman expands the game by adding new personal player boards to track progress in strength, prosperity, and popularity of the would-be kings. As each progressive requirement is met, the conditions affecting tile selling and placement change. There is also a new pawn (the journeyman) who helps the chieftain by traveling the kingdom and “activating” the tiles. The expansion also includes four new scoring tiles that represent new challenges to achieve.
Mayfair will be showing off two other fall releases at Gen Con this week (see “'Run Bunny Run' and 'Food Chain'”).
