Setup

Place the board in the middle of the table. Each player draws a random Character card and places it in front of them. (In a two-player game, randomly draw a Character card out of only the following three: Carpenter, Cook and Explorer). Unused Character cards should be put back into the box. Each Character card shows a particular Invention. The matching card should be removed from the Invention deck and placed face up (Invention side up) on their Character card. Each player should also take 2 pawns in the color of their choice (blue, yellow, black or orange) and 1 Wound marker which they place on the lemost space of their Character's life track. …



4-player Game

When there are 4 players, take the special "Arranging the Camp" card and place it on the board to cover the corresponding space.

Each time a player takes the Arranging the Camp Action, he either gets 2 Determination tokens or increases the Morale level by 1 on the main board.

2-player Game

Players randomly draw a Character card out of only the following three: Carpenter, Cook and Explorer.

When there are only 2 players, they have an additional Character - Friday. Take the Friday card and the white pawn, and place it near the main board. Take a Wound marker and put it on the leftmost field of Friday's life track. …



Each skill can be used at any time, only by its character, and only once per round.

Carpenter

Economical Construction

Discard 2 Determination tokens to spend 1 less wood during one Action of any type.

For example: if you need 3 wood to build Shelter, the Carpenter can build it with only 2 wood. If the Threat Action requires 1 wood, the Carpenter can take this Action without discarding any wood.

Crasmanship

Discard 2 Determination tokens to reroll any brown Action die. Note! You cannot use the Determination tokens gained from an unsuccessful die roll to reroll that die which gave you those Determination tokens. …



Some cards use keywords to describe certain actions:

DECIDE (mostly used on Adventure cards) - Players always have the choice described on the card. It is usually a choice between discarding the Adventure card without any effect, or getting some benefits but also facing some consequences later (i.e. shuffling the Adventure card into the Event deck and resolving some negative effect if it is drawn in a future round).

IF POSSIBLE - Resolve the described effect only if it is possible. If you cannot (for example: you have to discard a resource that you do not have), nothing happens. The Rule of Unfulfilled Demand does not apply in this case. …
