Santiago Board Game
This is a Ding-n-Dent product. The game is still wrapped in plastic, but the box is imperfect, and shows some slight wear, crease, or tear. The components are intact. There are no returns for this product.


Drake says: "Santiago the board game is about cultivating and watering fields. Plantation tiles are auctioned off each turn and placed onto the game board along with an ownership marker that also indicates how plentiful the tile’s yield will be. The lowest bidder in each round gets to be the canal overseer and decides where a canal will be built that round. At the end of each round, players determine the water supply. If a plantation is not sufficiently watered, its production is reduced or removed completely. In the end, the player with the most productive crops will win!"


John says: "Santiago is a quick-playing, bid and bribe irrigation game with lots of interaction. The more players, the better with this game! 5 players games are best!"


Claudia Hely & Roman Pelek


Some kilometers west of the African mainland lies the Cape Verde Island of Santiago. The climate is hot, and every drop of water is precious.

Every player buys at auction certain plantations (potatoes, beans, paprika, bananas, and sugar cane) and tries to connect these to others in order to unite and enlarge their holdings. Plantations must quickly be connected to the canal irrigation system so that they do not dry up completely and fail to produce any yield. Bribes to the Canal Overseer are necessary, in order to insure that the canal system connects to your own plantations. The sooner that a plantation is irrigated and is connected to other plantations of the same type, the more yield -- and thus the more money -- will be gained at the end of the game.

The one who wins will be the one who most skillfully acquires plantations, irrigates them, and connects them to lucrative plantations of the same type.
