South Louisiana has a long and rich history of delicious Cajun dishes like gumbos and jambalayas. A large part of what makes these meals so great is the seafood in them that is fished from the Gulf of Mexico. The men and women who operate the shrimp boats that fish that seafood have to be both hard-working and crafty, finding the optimum strategy to bring in the best catch. They are known as the "Captains of the Gulf".
Captains of the Gulf is a thematic action selection game, chocked-full of flavor. In the game, 2-4 players will each operate a fishing boat in the Gulf of Mexico, hoping to make the largest profit over eight game turns. The players will try to upgrade their fishing boat, add crew members, then move out to fish crabs, oysters, and shrimp, after which they need to deliver them to ports.
Cards are multi-purpose; they are added to a player's mat on top (licenses), at the left side (crew), or on the right side (boat upgrade). Moreover, whenever you fish you need to play them out of your hand.
