Vasco da Gama Board Game


Drake says: "Vasco da Gama is a resource management game, with an element of risk management. Recruit workers, buy projects, build ships and use these ships to open new commercial routes to eastern Africa and India, to earn money and glory. The game lasts five rounds, after which the player with the most points has won."


John says:"Vasco Da Gama is a very active and responsive game. It plays relatively quickly and there is little downtime! Even if your actions are far apart, watching the other players is still very engaging!"


Paolo Mori


Vasco da Gama was charged with finding a maritime route to India. Players play the part of rich shipowners who, under his patronage, aim to achieve prestige and riches. To succeed in the enterprise, they must manage the money and actions at their disposal in order to hire captains, recruit crew, build Ships, launch them and send them to the Landings of Natal, Terra de Boa Gente, Mozambique, Malindi, Mombasa and Calicut. For each Ship sent, Players will receive an immediate reward and will gain prestige (Victory Points). The further the Ship is sent, the lower the compensation, but the higher the victory score that the Player will earn.Ships at Landings that are "complete" at the end of the Round (i.e. reached by a certain number of Ships) will earn further Victory Points for their owners and will then advance, under certain conditions, to the next Landing. This creates the opportunity to earn again Victory Points in the following rounds.
