Mermaid Rain Board Game


Drake says: "In "Mermaid Rain", you explore the ocean and gather as many treasures as possible in order to win the heart of your Prince. But you can’t win the heart of the Prince while stuck in the ocean - you will need to spend some of your treasure to appease the witch, who will ransform your glorious fish tail into functional legs. Then, hopefully, you will have enough treasure left to dazzle the Prince."


John says: "Over five rounds, players try to collect five different types of goods by moving around the sea. The game uses two phases: first is the "surf predicting" phase where players play melds of cards in a Taj Mahal-type mechanic. The melds determine player order, selection of "wave tile", and give other benefits. In the second round, "surf riding", players place their wave tiles on the board and then use cards to move through the sea on the waves to collect goods. The game is interesting and the mechanics fit together well."


Keiji Kariya & Hitoshi Yasuda


The main action of "Mermaid Rain" is divided into two phases: the "Surf-predicting" phase and the "Surf-riding" phase. In the "Surf-predicting" phase, you make melds by using the cards in your hand and gain a Surf tile. In the "Surf-riding" phase of each round, you place the Surf tile on the board, move your Mermaid by using cards from your hand, and gather treasures. Gain enough treasure and win your Prince!
