OverviewOverview

Blue Lagoon is a strategy game where you explore a map by placing Settler tiles. You place Settler tiles to create the longest lines on the map. With other players doing the same it soon turns into a Connect-4-style battle of whits to foist each other's plans, only here the world is your oyster, rather than the blue plastic slots.

The game is played in two phases. In the first half you place your Settler tokens to explore anywhere. As you do you also place Village bases ready for phase two. Between phases you remove and score your existing Settler tiles for the longest lines and linking islands. In the second half you repeat the process but can only explore from villages you established.

As you progress you soon realise that to score the most points it's essential to block other players as well as focus on the expansion of your own lines. Add to this the points for collect resources, and the two phased approach and you have a game that works well in families. It's particularly good because even if you have a bad first half you can easily catch up in the second round.
