This is a tileplacement legacy game that plays in 8 chapters of each 3 games, so 24 in total. After this the game can still be played on the adapted playerboards or on the other side.

During the game 1 tile is shown via the main deck of cards and all players simultaneously place this tile on their own playerboards.

The first tile needs to be placed by water and the other tiles around them.
Each chapter comes with new rules.

At the end of the game, most wins the game. If you lose, you get a small bonus for the next games.


👍 The legacy aspect is very well implemented

👍 Easy to learn, true familygame

👍 Solid gameplay

A copy of this game was provided to me by Speelgoed van het Jaar for the purpose of writing this review. My opinion however remains my own.
