Z-Man Games Taking Pre-Orders For Anchors Aweigh

It's time to set sail on the high seas. There's lots of treasure out there to be found, cargo to be transported, and goods to be sold. That's what you'll be doing in Anchors Aweigh, a new game coming from Z-Man Games. Pick up the right goods for your journey, and head to port to make the most profit. They are taking pre-orders now.

From the post:

Set sail and weigh anchor for an adventure across the sea. Treasure awaits the sailor who is prepared. Quickly grab the supplies you need to complete your journey and return with the most treasure to win.

Anchors Aweigh is available for pre-order from our website or your local retailer. If you’re at Gen Con this year make sure to stop by booth 1429 for a demo!

To prepare for your adventure at sea, you’ll need to quickly grab supplies to fill your ship in this real-time game. Pile the various assets onto the center of the table. Leave the tiles how they fall, faceup or facedown. Set thirteen adventure cards around the pile of assets and you’re ready to load your ship.

Once the game starts, flip the adventure cards faceup and you’ll see what you’ll need to load your ship with to complete Discovery, Trade, Contract, and Pirate cards. You have to be quick though. The other players are trying to grab assets to fill their ship at the same time. Flip the asset tiles faceup as you hunt for the items you need. You may need a spyglass tile for one Discovery card but also need a spyglass and a shovel to complete a different card. Try to fill your ship with the correct assets to complete as many adventure cards as you can.
