Archipelago

In Archipelago, players are Renaissance European powers competing in the exploration of a Carribean archipelago. They will explore territories, harvest resources, use those resources in markets both internal (for their use and that of the natives) and foreign (to sell it in Europe), build markets, harbors, cities and temples, and negotiate among themselves (and maybe betray each other) – all this to complete their secret objectives. They will also need to guess the secret objective of the other players to be able to benefit from them.

But players also need to be careful of the natives; if they make them too unhappy or if too many of them are unoccupied, they could revolt and declare independence. Then everyone will lose!

According to the author, what he's tried to create is a "German" economic worker-placement game, but without the two things he dislikes in them: the superficial theme and the lack of interaction. Indeed this game includes a very present theme and a lot of negotiation and potential backstabbing.

The game includes three sets of objectives, enabling players to choose between a short, medium and long game.

Archipelago - Solo Expansion

With this expansion, you can play Archipelago in solo mode through 27 very different scenarios, each replayable to improve your performance and your ranking. Take on the role of Christopher Columbus, Robinson, Crusoe, Bluebeard and many others and try to reach as best you can the objectives you are given.

You must own Archipelago, the base game, in order to use this expansion.

Archipelago - War and Peace

After decades of exploration, disputes arise among the colonizing European nations over the discovered lands, resources and trade routes. Old-continent quarrels become new again in the colonies. At times, precarious moments of peace are maintained — until wars erupt again. Human greed is an eternal source of conflicts...

Archipelago: War & Peace introduces forty new beautifully- and individually-illustrated evolution cards: twenty character and twenty progress cards. These cards — which can be combined with the base game or used as a complete replacement — are more aggressive, interactive and (sometimes) drastic than the original ones, covering the major themes of war, peace, and trade, among others.

With Archipelago: War & Peace, you can add spice to your games and make Archipelago new again!
