Since the beginning of time, humans have lived in harmony on the coast of the Great Continent. Hostile fauna & flora prevented any exploration of the inland. Gradually, clans have turned to the sea and acquired new knowledge regarding nature. Sun & wind.
Recently, courageous explorers have discovered, far in the blue immensity, a magnificent archipelago, filled with vital resources for humans.
You are these explorers, sent by the clan leaders to bring back prestige and wealth. Find the natural resources, as well as the temples of an ancient civilisation, in the heart of these many islands: The Small Islands.
Small Islands is a tile-placement game in which you are daring explorers discovering a magnificent archipelago. Its islands are brimming with natural resources but also temples from an ancient and mysterious civilization.
Brave adventurers, bring back to your clan wealth & prestige!
A game is played in maximum 4 Rounds. At the beginning of each Round, each player secretly picks an Objective Card out of three cards. And in turn, players draw and place a Landscape Tile out of the 5 available (2 in hand, and 3 on the table).
At a certain point, another option becomes available: placing a Ship Tile. When this tile is placed, in turn, all players place Houses on the islands and earn Prestige Points according to their Objective.
Then players start a new Round. When the game ends, players receive additional points for their Ship Tiles.
In Advanced Mode, Objectives are split in 2 types of cards which allows you to create your own objectives among many combinations.
There is also a Solo Mode, innovative for its mechanics as well as for the very concept of a solo mode in a tile-placement game. We gave it an IA with a personality and different behaviors.
Small Islands offers you even more surprises, hidden at its heart.
