Expand Your Fun with New Bedford: Rising Tide from Dice Hate Me Games

May 24, 2016 - 8:25am
new bedford New Bedford found success on Kickstarter in August of 2015 to the tune of $109,000.  With games currently at the printer and anticipating shipping, Dice Hate Me Games has announced they will release an expansion to retail in July.  This expansion will be shipped with Kickstarter copies, but for those picking up New Bedford at retail, they won't miss out on what it provides.  From the announcement on ICv2:
New Bedford:  Rising Tide adds enough ships and supplies for a fifth player.  New buildings for the town expansion side of the game are also included, as well as new Ship’s Log, Providence, and Omen game effects.
The New Bedford base game seeks to explore the growth of the whaling industry in mid-1800s America.  Players will gather resources, add building to the town of New Bedford, and take ships out, hunting for whales.  On return, players will earn money to repeat the process.  As the game goes on, whales become more rare, demonstrating the environmental impact unfettered whaling had on the species.  When the game ends, players tally points from buildings, whales, and money and the player with the most points wins.  Keep watch for Rising Tide to arrive in stores in July to enhance your games of New Bedford.
