This caused situations where I was unable to target a player in the lead because they weren’t seated adjacent to me. If all characters survive the day phase (and no other shenanigans happen) then the loot is collected from right to left. I say joint first, I won on the tiebreak but you have to give some false hope to new players, right? Playing a high-number card might mean you go last in the day phase, but hey, look, the train doors are opening, and you can get off first. The original Libertalia has been on my wish list for some time, and so glad to see a new version is coming out by Stonemaier.

Depending on where you live, the time it may take for your exchanged product to reach you, may vary.But the core gameplay (which works so well) is there and this mode is great for learning the characters and finding synergy between shipmates. Loot tokens represent the treasure your crew is after, and the tokens themselves highlight their importance. The special powers on both crew and tiles are very varied and spice proceedings up like a tot of rum. The six starting pirates are selected randomly from the game’s 40 potential characters, and players will see 12 more over the course of the game.

But the game puts a lot of potential thought behind the very simple decisions that it asks you to make. At the end of a voyage, anchor abilities are also simultaneously activated by loot tokens and characters on your ship. I suppose this might be frustrating to some looking for a way to select their path and stick to it, but in a game where jockeying for position on a single ranked track every turn is the only way to score, you have to expect some shenanigans.Libertalia: Winds of Galecrest is different to other games hitherto published by Jamey Stegmaier’s company though. Also, Matthew from Room 51 (posting for Dice Tower) just uploaded a “Teach the Teach” video for Libertalia too! I had been pretty deep into the hobby for a few years at that point and would still frequently browse the internet for good deals to fill out my collection.

Few other games play five and six players with as little downtime as Libertalia: Winds of Galecrest outside of the party genre. It’s probably not an entry level game, in the same way as Wingspan isn’t for me, mainly due to learning the game in the first instance. As an admiral, you command a vast and varied crew…but so do your rivals sailing other ships in the pirate fleet. As an admiral, you command a vast and varied crew … but so do your rivals sailing other ships in the pirate fleet. Which we’d completely expect because with the simultaneous selection during each day of every voyage.Two more voyages will follow, with six more characters drawn into the hand, new loot placed out and doubloons gained. The original Libertalia has long been my favorite action selection game so I was eager to get the new version to the table and I can happily say that nearly every aspect of Winds of Galecrest is superior to the original. You know what characters your opponent has, how much money they have and what loot items are available.

She selected some of her brightest crew to join her: the cook, the scout, the brawler, the witch, and the bosun. If you play the Smuggler, you get to choose a loot token during the day phase instead, so you could force some other poor sap to take the hook. However, there is a second automa thrown in that doesn’t do anything except play a card purely for its rank to keep you from gaming the real automa. At the end of the game, whoever has accumulated the most money is the best pirate in all of the seven seas.I had a rare opportunity to take this game round to some non-board gaming friends to see how it faired. Similar to other recent designs like Red Rising and Tapestry, the solo mode in Libertalia: Winds of Galecrest has you squaring off against not one but two automated rivals.
