Learn-to-Play: Ship Shape & Everyone Loves a Parade

October 29, 2019

November 10, 2019 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Join us for great Learn-to-Play weekends in November!

This time is Ship Shape & Everyone Loves a Parade.

New players always welcome! Your Barrister host will teach the rules before we begin and provide guidance during gameplay.

Your savvy crew does your bidding, stacking your hold with the most profitable crates.  Will you choose glittering treasure, colossal cannons, or perhaps some risky –but lucrative–contraband?  Over the course of three voyages, you’ll bid using numbered crew cards to claim unique crate tiles off the central stack. Fill your hold with gold, cannons, and contraband and cover up what you don’t want. At the end of each voyage, score coins by comparing your holds with everyone else, looking only at what is visible in your hold.

Everyone Loves a Parade
In Everyone Loves A Parade, you and your fellow players are float designers, selecting colorful decoration cards to add to your floats and wow the crowd. Each decoration card allows an immediate action that can give you an edge, allowing you to move or re-roll crowd dice! At the end of each round, you’ll reveal your secret order cards, perform one last action, then enter your completed float into the parade in front of a crowd.
