Looking Games is bringing you a new gateway game for 2-5 players. In Isle of Sky: From Chieftan to King, the players are chieftains of 5 famous clans in Isle of Skye, one of the most beautiful places in the world. The players are trying to build their kingdoms and score as many points as possible.
In each turn, each player places two tiles in front of him and specifies a price for other players. The other players can choose whether or not to buy the tiles – if no one buys it, then the seller must pay the price and lose money. Players must use all their wagering and speculation skills to come out on top.
But in the end, it’s not the richest player who wins, but the player with the best kingdom, scored by the scoring cards. The game comes with 16 scoring cards, but only 4 are used in each game, so each game is different.
Isle of Sky plays in around 45 minutes, and it’s a gateway game for the whole family. The game is illustrated by Klemens Franz. The game will contain:
- 1 game board
- 16 Scoring cards
- 72 landscape tiles
- 1 cloth bag
- 5 score markers (wood)
- 5 bag markers
- 5 player screens
- 1 round marker (wood)
- 1 start player marker
- 80 coins
