Isle of Skye: Journeyman From Mayfair Games in November

Coming late November 2017 from Mayfair Games is Isle of Sky: Journeyman. Journeyman is the first big expansion to Isle of Skye. The game was designed by Alexander Pfister and Andreas Pelikan and for 2-5 players age 10 and up.

Becoming a king is hard. Being a king is even harder. You need warriors to protect your kingdom, merchants to keep your treasury liquid and heralds which proclaim your popularity across the kingdom. Luckily, your best mate has agreed to take over the hard graft. Consequently you can concentrate on becoming a glory chieftain.

First of all, Journeyman contains new personal player boards. They indicate your progress in terms of strength, prosperity and popularity. As each progress step has requirements to be met, the personal player boards affect tile selling and placement. However, in order to claim the next level of development and gain potential rewards, it’s not sufficient to place the corresponding tiles only. As new pawn needs to travel the kingdom and “activate” the tiles. In addition, 4 new scoring tiles are contained respecting the new challenges.

Isle of Sky: Journeyman features 4 New scoring tiles, 8 New landscape tiles, 7 Gold coins, 15 Roads, 5 “50/100” VP markers, and 1 Rulebook. Also in each of the 5 player colors: 1 progress board, 6 markers, 9 bonus tiles, and 1 Journeyman pawn.

Isle of Sky: Journeyman will retail for $25.

Mayfair Announces Booty for August 2015

MFG4138-cTreasures of all types! But the hard part is not capturing the ship’s bounty, but dividing it fairly to the pirates! In Mayfair GamesBooty players take turns splitting each round’s booty into shares for the other players. Different types of treasures have different values, and of course there’s the hidden items to keep people guessing. Will you be the quartermaster to give everyone their fair share–but giving yourself the best share?

Each round, cards representing treasures are revealed. Some are worth points immediately, some items cancel others, some give you a chance, but not a guarantee, for a big payday. The quartermaster (a job that travels from player to player) divides the treasures into shares, and also includes the order of picking treasures in the next round. Balancing what you need, what others might want, and trying to get a little extra into your treasure pile is the key to success!

The building cards provide many special benefits that allow for a broad range of strategies every time you play.

The game will retail for $35 and is intended for people ages 10+ and meant for 2-6 players.

The game contains.

  • 108 cards
  • 54 player flag tiles (9 of each color)
  • 6 player turn order tiles
  • 6 turn selection tiles
  • 4 stock market markers
  • 1 quartermaster token
