Help Amerigo Vespucci on his journey to discover new land. Explore the islands of South America, secure trading routes, and build settlements.
Amerigo is played with a special cube tower to detemine the actions that may be taken by the players. At the start of the game, this tower is seeded with action cubes, which come in seven colours, - one for each type of action. During the game players will drop additional action cubes into the tower – but some of these cubes might get stuck in the floors of the tower while other cubes already in the tower are knocked free. Thus, players need to play both tactically – taking advantage of the actions currently available in the best way possible – and strategically – using their knowledge of which actions do what to play well over the course of the game.
The game board consists of 9-16 tiles, depending on the number of players. Players sail their ships through the landscape created for this game, landing on islands to plan and build settlements, which then supply resources and allow the player to earn victory points. Players might want to invest in cannons to protect themselves from pirates roaming the waters or acquire progress tokens to gain special advantages.
