Age Of Discovery
From the Publisher...
Through the 15th and 16th centuries, explorers set out for all regions of the world, sometimes financed by royalty, and some financed by companies looking for new sources of wealth. In Age of Discovery, from Mayfair Games, you operate one of those trading houses, balancing the need to make money from trading routes with the glory and fame you will receive by giving your ships to the great explorers of history. Will you help Magellan sail around the world, or Columbus to discover America?
You'll have to play to find the answer!
Age of Discovery is for 2 to 4 players aged 10 and up. The game is a co-production with Phalanx Games, made in Germany.

|The best thing about Age of Discovery is probably that it allows you to feel that you are building an ever-growing empire - and that you are constantly trying to optimize your fleet towards the contracts available. It plays in under an hour and has plenty of meaningful decisions, while keeping the rules simple.
