Renowned artist Beth Sobel (known for Viticulture, and Arboretum) teams up with designer Steve Finn (known for Herbaceous, and Biblios) to take players on an adventure in Waters of Nerues. In the latest game from publisher, Dr. Finn’s Games, 2-4 players explore the waters of Nerues, looking for treasures in the vast seas.
On their ship they lead a talented crew, including the captain, pilot and first mate, purser, scientist, boatswain, and merchant. Each crew member serves a unique function on the ship and the player who manages their crew by keeping them happy with treasures they find will be victorious. In each of the game’s 6 rounds, a round card is flipped, showing how many crew members can be activated during that round. Players then simultaneously choose which crew members to use, then, in turn order, they perform the crew member’s action. The crew is paid with collected treasures to score victory points and gain additional actions.
Waters of Nerues is designed for players aged 14+, and plays in about 45-60 mins. It’s expected to release in May of 2019.
