Nantucket

Nantucket details

Nantucket overview

Nantucket — a small, two-player game with a whaling theme — takes you to "The Little Grey Lady of the Sea" during the early American whaling industry. You need just a few cards and coins to play in whatever port you find yourself. Mix and match two cards to form the modular board. Then use your single turn each round to carefully build the town and send out ships. After performing your actions, flip the coins on your ship to catch a whale. Play until the town is fully constructed, supplies run out, or the last whales are taken. Between buildings and earned coins, may the best captain win!
