Now On Kickstarter: Vanuatu Second Edition

vanuatu

You are a Vanuatuan who wants to prosper during the eight turns of the game. In order to do this, you will have to go fishing, discover treasures, buy and sell the local natural resources, and be on the lookout for tourists. To earn money or prosperity points, you may also draw on the sand, or trade cargo with foreign countries.

Quined Games announces a new Kickstarter project to fund a new edition of Vanuatu, a strategy game of programming actions through placing and retreiving workers, majorities, earning a little money and a lot of interaction between players.  Paul Mulders of Quined Games seeks to bring this game by Alain Epron back to life with polished artwork and added Rising Waters and Governor mini-expansions. The Rising Waters expansion is also available as a standalone, yet the five submerged island tiles will be replaced by wooden parts to make it compatible with the old version of the game. The Governor expansion will not be available as a standalone expansion.

This new version of the game will include:

  • 1 Gameboard
  • 15 Archipelago Tiles
  • 1 Sailboat, 3 Player Discs, 5 Action Markers, and 8 Huts for each player in various colors
  • 10 Demand Tiles
  • 14 Fish Tiles
  • 10 Treasure Tiles
  • 9 Tourist Tiles
  • 4 Rest Tokens
  • 9 Sand Drawing Tokens
  • 1st Player Token
  • 1 Fish Price Marker
  • 1 Game Turn Marker
  • 18 Tourist Pawns
  • 14 Fish Tokens
  • 10 Treasure Tokens
  • 11 Character Tiles
  • 10 Kava Resource Cubes
  • 8 Copra Resource Cubes
  • 6 Beef Resource Cubes

For the Rising Waters expansion:

  • 5 Submerged Island Tiles
  • 20 Dike Sticks
  • 20 Water Markers
  • 1 6-Sided Die
