Seafood. Some people love it. Others not so much. But either way, it’s big business. There’s money to be made out there, collecting the bounty of the ocean. Fleets of ships head out, cast their next and bring home the catch. And that’s just what you’ll be doing in Fleet: The Dice Game, a new game from Eagle-Gryphon Games that’s up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Fleet: The Dice Game takes place over 10 rounds with each round having up to 4 phases: a Boat Phase; an Income Phase; a Fishing Phase (even rounds only); and a Town Phase. In these rounds players acquire assets, wealth, power and income.
In the Boat Phase, the starting player rolls boat dice equal to the number players +1. Each player selects one die to unlock license powers and launch boats to catch fish. The remaining die is then used by all players.
In the Income Phase, players collect income on the coin track and adjust for any income bonuses they may have acquired.
In the Fishing Phase, players collect fish in each boat they have already launched.
In the Town Phase, the starting player rolls town dice equal to the number of players plus one boat die. Each player selects one die to either unlock special buildings in the Wharf, activate awesome ships in the Harbor, or go to the Market and gain additional income. The remaining die is then used by all players.
The game ends after 10 rounds. Players add up their points as shown in the five different categories on their score sheet and the player with the most points wins! For more details, please click the link below for the full rules of the game.
The campaign’s around 5x funded, but there’s only 8 days left to haul in this catch.
