Tobago is an adventure game where the players use representations of treasure maps to locate unknown treasures. During the game, more and more information about the location of a treasure is revealed and its possible locations are slowly narrowed down. When the location of one of the treasures is finally revealed players attempt to reach it as quickly as possible to secure the findings. The more clues you have contributed , the more of a stake you will have in the loot.
Players can carefully play their clues and use bonus-action gems to influence where and when the treasure is located in order to ensure a more favourable outcome when the loot is finally 'dug up' and shared.
The game contains a 3 piece, double-sided, modular game board which can be rearranged to create 32 possible island arrangements.
