This fun, easy-to-learn, ever-changing puzzle game is made up super cute betta-shaped meeples that are pleasant to handle, offers three different ways to play.

Jamaica : The Crew

Ages: 8+ / Players: 2-6 / Duration: 45-60 minutes

Jamaica: The Crew is a set of twenty new characters, each with a special power. Hire a crew member by paying their fee. But play smart, because while increasing the number of crew members gives you more points, they take up more valuable cargo space! New characters follow the same rules as all other resources in the game.

Jamaica: The Crew is an expansion. A copy of Jamaica is required to play it.
