The modern classic returns! Did you miss your chance to play it when the original edition was available? Did you play a friend’s copy and can’t understand why it ever went out of print? Did you play your own copy into ragged pieces like we did? Whichever one of those is true, or if this is your first look at the game, welcome to the campaign! It is a dream come true for us to bring this game from Jarratt Gray and Carl de Visser back to gamers everywhere!
Endeavor: Age of Sail is a strategy board game set in the historic Age of Sail. Starting out in the crowded hub of Europe, you must struggle to dominate at home while sending ships to the closed regions of the world… and be ready to seize control when they open up! You’ll compete to grow the most successful empire through a smooth combination of:
- area control (capture key cities and the routes that join them!)
- resource collection (get the assets to build your empire!)
- engine-building (construct the buildings to power your strategy!)
- action management (use your population and trade tokens wisely!)
The elegant gameplay is driven by five different actions (Occupy, Ship, Draw, Attack, and Payment), and five different attributes (Industry, Wealth, Culture, Influence, and Glory):
The way you build, combine, and manage those elements creates your empire. Your challenge will be to navigate the maps of the world as they unfold, and write the history books so that the Age of Sail describes your victory!
