Coldwater Crown – It’s Fishing Time!
Coldwater Crown is a fishing board game in which you take part in a fishing tournament and you try to catch the perfect variety of fish from Shore, River and Lake.
There are four fishing zones where you place different types of bait, in order to catch fish. By using a worker placement mechanism that allows you to both place and pick up tokens, you begin clearing your zones by removing only baits that will help you catch the fish you need next. Whenever you take the last piece of bait in a zone, you catch a fish that corresponds to the color of that bait. Moreover, there is the special Master Angler Challenge, in which you earn extra points by clearing unique combinations of colors to catch fish.
Whenever you manage to catch the right fish at the right moment, you get trophies which give you victory points. The player who has gathered the most points for the Shore, River and Lake contests is the winner.
Coldwater Crown is a mid-weight euro-style game, which has a unique worker placement mechanism, since you take actions by placing and picking up a token at the same time. This means that a lot of strategy needs to be developed, while having fun!
Coldwater Crown has been up on Kickstarter, where you can back it and it will be available in 2017.
