Small Islands is a tile-placement game where you are daring explorers discovering a magnificent archipelago. Its islands are filled with natural resources but also temples from an ancient and mysterious civilization. Brave adventurers, bring back to your clan's wealth & prestige!
A game is played in a maximum of 4 Rounds. At the start of each Round, each player secretly picks an Objective Card out of three cards. In a turn, players will draw and place a Landscape Tile out of the 5 available (2 in hand, and 3 on the table). At a certain point in the game, another option becomes available: placing a Ship Tile. When this tile is placed, in turn, all players will place Houses on the islands and earn Prestige Points according to their Objective. Then players begin a new Round. When the game is over, players receive additional points for their Ship Tiles.
In Advanced Mode, Objectives are split in 2 types of cards which allows players to create your own objectives amongst many combinations.
A Solo Mode is also included, innovative for its mechanics as well as for the very concept of a solo mode in a tile-placement game. The game designers gave it an AI with a personality and different behaviors.
Small Islands offers you even more surprises, hidden in its heart.
