Set Sail Upon the ‘Waters of Nereus’ This Spring

Waters of Nereus (Dr. Finn's Games)An interesting looking maritime game is on the horizon from Dr. Finn’s Games and it’s entitled Waters of Nereus. In the game players will lead their crews across the sea in search of treasure while also aiming to become the most effective captain. Waters of Nereus is or one to four players, ages 14+, plays in around 45-60 minutes and will carry an MSRP of $40.00 when it arrives in May. I will mention that pricing information is from a distributor whereas the Dr. Finn’s website indicates an MSRP of $50.00 and a June arrival date.

From Dr. Finn’s Games:

Explore the Waters of Nereus, a fabulous world with wonderful treasures in its vast seas. You lead a capable and talented crew. The captain determines the best direction to sail, the pilot and first mate maneuver the ship through the ocean, the purser controls your funds, the scientist performs important research, the merchant buys your treasures, and the boatswain controls the equipment.

The game consists of 6 rounds. In each round, a round card is flipped, showing how many crew members can be activated during the round. Players simultaneously choose a crew member to use, then, in turn order, perform the action. As you collect treasures, you can pay off the crew to score victory points, as well as gain additional actions.

The player who can best manage their crew and keep them happy with found treasures will be victorious.
