In Last Resort, each player is a proud new owner of a defunct space station, which they plan to convert into the galaxy’s trendiest space resort!
Each round (or ‘season’) players select one of their four advert cards to play, broadcasting it across the galaxy to attract tourists! These advert cards also determine which parts of your station guests can check out of (generating income) and what kind of tile you can build this round. But beware – playing the same advert as another station will result in interference, causing Malfunction tiles to crop up on both stations!
When players are done checking out tourists and buying new tiles, rockets filled with new tourists will arrive! In the Arrivals phase, players draft tourists to visit their stations, with the players whose attractions and amenities most align with current trends getting to pick first (which usually means they will also get extra tourists, as arrival numbers are rarely an exact multiple of the player count!) If a player does not have a suitable spot for the type of tourist they want to draft, the tourist is ejected into space, negatively affecting your station’s ratings!
At the end of the game, the winner is the owner with the most QUID – or Quantum Universal Intergalactic Denomination, the accepted currency of all space resorts. QUID is generated not only by checking out tourists, but also vying to be the highest in each of the four ‘Prestige’ categories – Thrills, Entertainment, Relaxation and Inspiration!
