Capstone Games Sets Sail for ‘Cooper Island’ This November

Cooper Island (Capstone Games)While Cooper Island will be premiering at Spiel ’19 for Frosted Games, here is the U.S. we’ll be seeing the title arriving by way of Capstone Games. In the game, players will compete as explorers and settlers looking to claim areas of the island to make their own. Cooper Island is for one to four players, ages 12+, plays in around 30 minutes, and will carry an MSRP of $69.95 when it arrives in November.

From Capstone:

In the age of exploration the players arrive at a new home far away from their homeland. They try to colonize the big island and each player tries to explore one part of it by placing landscape tiles. Landscape tiles grant resources and those are used to erect buildings with special abilities. Barriers on the island have to be removed in order to explore the island even further. Players build valuable statues and supply ships get them the supplies from the old world they need to be a successful settler on Cooper Island.

The special thing about Cooper Island is the way the players mark their victory points. They take small ship markers around the island to show their progress. On their way around the island they find smaller islands inshore that grant valuable benefits. After five rounds, a game of Cooper Island ends and the player who developed the best and went on furthest with their ships will win.
