Pretty Boring This is a small, quick tile-laying game. It feels similar to Carcassonne, but that’s where any similarity ends. The turns are like many tile games. Each player selects a face-down tile, turns it over, and places it on the board. Tiles have water or island sections on them. They also have little dotted lines on some edges, showing you which way you can connect newly drawn tiles. Additionally, there is a large wooden ship marker that is moved each turn, to an already placed tile. Drawn tiles can only be placed adjacent to the ship, and also must maintain all dotted line connections. Tile features must also match. All of these requirements together reduce player decisions substantially, and allow randomness to flourish.One decision you can make is to place a scout, which is basically an ownership marker, on a newly placed island section. These each represent 1-3 scouts, and only matter if an island is completed. Many times islands remain incomplete, because if a tile cannot…

Decent little 2 player game I love Catan and Carrassonne, but this game is pretty lame. The instructions are as complicated as the other two games but without the reward of a great game. This game plays very similay to Carrassonne but on a minature gameboard and takes 5 minutes to play. Not too inspired to play several games for sure. Waste of 10 bucks

You can play a game of this in 15 minutes or so once you know how to play. It’s pretty light, but overall not that bad of a two person experience. I would much rather play this than Skip-Bo or some other trash. Only real complaint is the junky little paper “followers”. They should have been Meaples.
