Product Description

Product Description

In the 15th century, the Portuguese Prince Henry the Navigator (Henrique o Navegador) summoned the best cartographers and navigators of his time and instructed them to explore the shores of the African coastline . They thereby won expertise in navigation and shipbuilding, heralding the Age of Exploration and enabling Portugal to later to find a sea trade route to India and China. In the height of its power Portugal controlled the sea trade from Brazil to Japan and attained overwhelming wealth with the trade monopoly on spices.

The players represent wealthy trade dynasties that help to build up the Portuguese colonial empire. Tracing the routes of famous explorers they advance all the way to Nagasaki--but sailing into unknown waters is a dangerous venture. Founding colonies and building factories helps them to build up an economic base. But the prices for sugar, gold and spices fluctuate all the time, and only the trade dynasty that adapts to the market will be able to finance its lofty plans. Competing for new discoveries, colonies, shipyards, and churches it is very important to observe the actions of the other players.

If your a fan of Puerto Rico, Endeavor, or any other euro/"german-style" boardgame with a shipping and trading theme, Navegador is a great choice. The game involves exploration and colonization of Portuguese trade routes spanning the southern half of the Eurasian continent all the way to Nagasaki. The game comes with a large board, high quality components, including cardboard coins, wooden ships, and individual player-boards to keep track of your flourishing enterprise. Along the way, you'll be colonizing, hiring workers, building churches and shipyards, and effectively producing and selling goods, manipulating a supply and demand market mechanic. The game uses the Rondel system for action choices on your turn similar to other games by its designer (Mac Gerdts). It works well with even two players, and I can see myself wanting to play it more in the future to try out different strategies. 2-5 Players, 60-90 minutes.

After playing a couple of 2 player game, I had a chance to introduce 2 new people to this game (in a 4 player game). After complaining about becoming a stock market broker during the presentations of the rules, they understood the game immediately after a couple of quick turns. The game flows very fast, the rules feel natural (we got one rule wrong and it felt wrong).
Despite this simplicity, the game has a large number of strategies possible. Specialization is encouraged.
Overall, I would recommend this to everybody. Even people new to board games will catch up pretty quick. The market rules is the only part that requires a bit of math - if you are playing with kids, that might be the only obstacle.

I saw a play-through of Navegador on Rahdo's YouTube channel, and I thought it was interesting enough to invest in. Now, after a few games with my spouse, we've noticed something new each time. This is a very involved game that will make you think!

A bonus I quite liked was that the game comes with a small booklet filled with miniature essays about actual historical figures during the Golden Age of Portuguese Exploration (in both English and German ^_^ ), and I appreciate that level of respect for the history that inspired the game.

If you like games with depth, you should definitely check out Navegador.
