Adventure strategic, historical fiction, highly climatic board game, designed for: 
- intelligent people 
 
 

It is a sandbox type gameplay, so you can do whatever you want. What in particular? Well... for example:

- sail on several types of the ships

- discover new lands, people, species, mysteries, civilisations

- meet the creatures which was supposed to not exist

- build the infrastructure, like mines, plantations or forts

- carry a cargo or the people for the money

- hire sailors, officers and the most sober captains

- fight the naval battles: use your guns or board the enemy ships

- negotiate

- pursue or flee

- sell your trophies to the merchant or to the other players

- use plenty of very interesting, 18th century stuff

- deal with the unstable weather from calm to hurricane

- face the unexplained phenomena 

- gamble in taverns

- drink all kinds of alcohol

 

 

Not very boring, right?

But bear in mind you should not only have a fun, but there are also some duties! You should at least try to win the game!

 

How to win the game then?

You just need to be elected as the Governor. As simple as that!

 

And how to achieve that?

- collect the trophies to win the elections, try to be popular;

- take the mythical conquistadors' treasure out of... conquistadors. People will love you instantly.

- explore and seize enough number of islands to rule that foggy sea.

 

Your ship is propelled by the wind...only!

wind force is a quite important factor then

 
- will you challenge the highest waves in the world, Sailor?!!!
- will you sail through the storm, Commander?!!!
 
- are you insane or something?! Use the forecast, and stay safe!  ;-)

 

The map of the Misty Waters Archipelago
- a big one: 87 x 58cm (34"x 23") , but suitable to most of the tables
- you are free to sail wherever you want
- several large, unexplored islands, and  many other atolls, whirlpools and rocks
- randomly placed exploration cards make the board unexplored at each gameplay
- AI ships are crossing the map from time to time, rarely using the same route
- board pitch size is designed for comfortable gameplay

Each of the ships on the board is represented by detailed token and the mini-board

- managing of the ship is simplified to keep down-time ratio low and ...
- spend more time on more interesting things
- in the core version of the game there are five types of the players' ships...
- plus one, the special one: mighty Ship-of-the-line- there are more types available, when
you'll invest in expansion pack "Nations"

What awaits you on the islands?

- randomly placed, like in the real life, so you may easily blame the bad luck, sit and cry...
- wild tribes, black magic, strange creatures and natives, treasures, and mysteries
- remainings of old civilisations, and traces of something... 
- a lot of funny stories as well

The Game

Wind

This is not a game about the pirates.

 

Pirates...
... in the reality, overwhelmingly violent, evil, ruthless, and degenerate bandits. They weren't too bright, but harmed innocent people without any scruple, not hesitating to rape and torture as well, just to get the money they haven't earned. 

The likes of them are still alive today,  and  you wouldn't want to meet any of them most probably...

 

That is why...

 

This is the game about brave Sailors, Officers, Masters & Commanders, who dare to enter uncharted waters and face whatever they'll encounter out there.

Game's plot is firmly set in the 18th century,

arguably the best period of the age of sail, and when the world's greatest powers were on the edge of a global conflict
