About this project
In Amerigo, designed by Stefan Feld for 2-4 players, players take the role of an explorer like Amerigo Vespucci, journey to discover new lands, plan and build settlements, and collect resources.
Amerigo has an amazing amount of replayability because the map layout differs each time, the patented dice tower changes the available actions from turn to turn, and the many strategies that can be pursued to achieve victory.
Through the clever use of a special dice tower, the game play in Amerigo has a new and innovative mechanism that determines the possible actions a player may take during his or her turn. This creates both a strategic (long range planning) and tactical (immediate action) game.
Players drop cubes of a particular color (action) into the tower. Each of the 7 cube colors relates to one of the 7 actions a player may take. With the patented tower design, the cubes that are dropped into the tower may not all make it out and/or may not be the only ones that come out. This creates an exciting element that requires the player to adapt to the tactical situation (the actions available to the players that particular turn) yet still rewards a good overall (long range) strategy, capturing the game's theme of exploration and discovery.
In a 4-player game the board is put together using 16 tiles. These tiles are assembled randomly every time you play.
On the board you will see pirate markers, action cubes, progress tokens, victory points track, special actions track, and commodities. Progress tokens give the player a specific advantage throughout the game (for example - the second tile from the right has the player receiving two gold every time he or she defeats the pirates...yes you will be fighting pirates in this game!)
Once you have landed your ship on an island, you can plan and build your settlements. This allows you to gather resources and earn victory points.
Don’t forget that there are pirates sailing the high seas! You must have your cannons loaded to protect yourself from the pirates. If you don’t have the cannons needed, then you suffer the consequences!
In Amerigo, you take the role of an explorer, discovering new lands, fighting pirates, and building settlements...your journey awaits!

Risks and challenges
This is an exciting project for us.
Our toughest challenge with our previous projects has been our choice to produce the games in Europe. We prefer the quality that is attained by the European print houses that we cannot get at this time in China or North America. We are working with printers in the U.S. to see if they can meet our quality goals, but so far that has not come to pass.
Everything will be shipped with the main game and not in separate shipments.
While every effort will be made to ship when promised, estimated delivery dates are estimates and are subject to change, unknown external factors may cause delays. Early delivery promise applies only to addresses within the United States, backers from other countries may get their rewards later.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
