    Here, I present number 3 in the AVENTYR series of board games.

    'Set course for Spitalmain!' 

    To set the scene;

    You been invited by your friends, Ronny and Josie, to a barbecue at the little beach on the Isle of Spitalmain. You have all sailed there from different places but there has been a bit of a misunderstanding — nobody has brought any food to cook! Fortunately, there are many small islands nearby with amazing little shops that  sell a vast choice of really good provisions. You each decide to sail off, collect  some  of these provisions and return before the barbecue starts. (You have 40 turns each in which to do this.)

    Once everyone has returned, the yacht that has brought back the most provisions is the winner.

    This is a game for 2-6 players normally, but more can play if you can all fit around the table.

    One person may play it by themselves. Record the score and compare it to previous games.

    A 40 turn game takes about 15-20 minutes per person. Restrict it to 30 turns for an even quicker game.

    A good family game, it being suitable for kids of 8 years+, and adults.

    The price you see below buys you the box containing the game board, the gameplay cards, 6 coloured counters, 2 x 6 sided dice, 1 x 4 sided dice and 1 x 20 sided dice.

    The combined score/turn sheet and the 'How to play' sheet are NOT included in the box but are necessary to play the game. 

    Happily, they are available to download free of charge by clicking on the links below.
    Indeed, you are welcome to download them before you buy so as to know if the game would be suitable for your requirements.

    'How to play' sheet  (2 x A4 sides)


    Score/turn sheet  (1 x A4 side)


    My games are designed to encourage face-to-face social interaction.

    At the price I am asking, it will prove to be very good value as it can be played very many times by very many people sitting around a table chatting and laughing with each other...
