Series/Type: Family Card Game
Every player starts with three Good Cards, two Ship Cards and one Goods Token on each ship corresponding to one of six Goods Cards in the game: Indigo, Fur, Corn, Lumber, Fish and Cotton. Every turn a player may draw or play various cards. This can change Goods Tokens on player’s Ship Cards, the face-up Goods Cards on the playing area, trigger scoring, and so on. During scoring, if players have Goods Tokens on their Ship Cards matching the color of the face-up Goods Cards on the playing area they will receive Coins. The game ends as soon as the deck of Goods Cards runs out. The player who has the most coins wins.
