In Wharfside, players fulfill Contracts from local Ridback Bay businesses. Each turn, players will either collect fish from their Fleet at the wharves (by taking cards) or choose to purchase a contract from the market. Contracts provide a bonus while in play, but once they are completed the bonus goes away too! 

Wharfside is simple to learn and play, and it is full of interesting and meaningful decisions. With a unique market mechanic, the fun and strategic contract bonus, and a twist on the familiar queue draw mechanic, Wharfside is a new and fun gaming experience for fans of Fleet... and even gamers who have never played Fleet!

Tales of the bountiful harvest at Ridback Bay have traveled far, attracting merchants to the local Wharfside who wish to pay handsomely for your haul. A successful fisherman’s day is not done with the catch; keen business decisions will determine if your Fleet has amassed a rich profit! Merchants have offered generous contracts for the catch, but which offer conveys the greatest benefits? Choose and complete the most lucrative contracts and reap your rewards!

Rhado Runs Through Fleet Wharfside  Final Thoughts and review

"Fleet Wharfside has a very interesting fishing (drafting) mechanism. I really enjoyed the dynamics of licensing vs. completing contracts. It's a familiar choice, but it's an interesting twist. Great game."

 - Joel Eddy of Drive Thru Reviews drivethruvideos.com

"Fleet Wharfside, like its predecessor Fleet, effectively showcases its theme and simultaneously offers a fulfilling and fun experience for both light and experienced gamers."

-  Jeff Patino http://www.boardgamequest.com/fleet-wharfside-preview/

"Wharfside wears its Fleet inspiration with pride, but never does it feel derivative; the mechanics are really smart, the design is solid, and gameplay is satisfyingly tight. If you love Fleet (and you should), then Wharfside will feel both familiar and new and in all ways super fun to play. And if you are a newcomer to the Eagle Gryphon world of fishing games, you've picked a great place to start!"

- Andrew Fisher of Gameosity.com Full review (here)

"Not only do I enjoy Fleet Wharfside, but my wife LOVES it. Easier to grasp and teach than regular Fleet while still bringing the fun - this will see more plays than original Fleet with us. We will be backing for sure!

- Ryan Sanders of theinquisitivemeeple.comInterview with me here!

"Fleet Wharfside is another great addition to the EGG series from Matt and Ben. While not a direct Fleet expansion, the charming artwork style and engaging decisions in Wharfside give players a familiar experience akin to its spiritual predecessor. A number of clever twists, including the market mechanic and contract powers, keep each game feeling fresh, like the catch-of-the-day. Wharfside offers quick and satisfying game play in a compact and accessible package that any school of gamers can enjoy." 

- Dan Halstad nonsensicalgamers.com

"The buying and selling of fish has never been so much fun! The market mechanic works really well and I love the cost fluctuation as items sell and stalls update."

- Tom Randell - Editor - The GamesQuest Blog http://www.gamesquest.co.uk/blog/

"Fleet Wharfside moves the action of Fleet from the open seas to the bustling wharfside market in this excellent stand-alone game. The rules are easy to pick up, the gameplay is solid and offers interesting strategic choices. I cannot wait to return to Ridback Bay & add this game to my collection! "

- Marcel Perro - Co-designer of For Greed or Glory from Parallax Games

Other International Shipping Locations

We regret that single copies of Wharfside and the rest of the E•G•G Series games do not lend themselves to the Kickstarter experience internationally. These games all have a relatively low MSRP and even lower pledge cost. Because of International Shipping Costs, single copies of these very small games are higher than the cost of the games, and often significantly higher. For this reason, we are only able to offer bundle levels for the EU and other locations. 

  • EU - 4 copies of Wharfside (or a total of 4 EGG series games) including shipping for $75 - Use the "EU Pledge Level"
  • Everywhere else - 4 copies of Wharfside (or a total of 4 EGG series games) including shipping is $85 - Use the "Everywhere Else" Pledge Level

These games will be available through the normal distribution channels in the future and we will most likely have them at Essen and other venues where you can pick them up. If you are interested in buying a group pledge of Wharfside beyond the four pack please pledge for $1 (so you can use the Messaging features), and provide your address and the exact # of games you are interested in by writing us a ,message using the "Contact me" blue link at the bottom right corner of the first screen (under the Eagle-Gryphon Games logo). We will be happy to provide you with the total amount for the games and shipping.

Risks and challenges

Eagle-Gryphon Games stands by our products, but sometimes issues do happen. Please contact our customer service department with regard to any such issues within 90 days of receiving your copy of Fleet Wharfside.

Shipping issues are relatively uncommon, but they do sometimes occur, especially when shipping to destinations outside of the US. We will obtain tracking information when it is possible, but sometimes it is not. We cannot guarantee that there will not be shipping problems, as we cannot guarantee the service and reliability of the various postal/delivery services involved around the world. You will have to assume that risk along with us.

Eagle-Gryphon Games has completed 50 Kickstarter projects to date. 44 of those projects have completed delivery. We keep Backers notified by Updates about the status of their projects. We deliver on our promises reliably and usually on time (the very few delays we have ever had were related to production schedule issues and/or transport issues such as dock strikes, which we have only, at best, partial or NO control over).

To put it simply, you will get everything you are promised when you pledge to one of our Kickstarter Projects, and it will be delivered to you in as timely a manner as possible.
