3 game board segments, double sided, relative positions can be altered ...


From the rules (emphasis theirs),

You can set up the game board to show 32 different islands, providing variety and a new challenge with each game of TOBAGO.



{Shrug} Interesting, but I don't feel desperation.

Plus you have the random placement of the landmarks (which you can do using a website if you don't want to do it yourself).

I don't see an expansion being 'required'. I'm obviously not a game designer, but I also can't see what you would add without ruining the simplicity of the game.

I'm firmly in the "Tobago doesn't need an expansion" camp but honest enough to admit if a volcano expansion was released or a KS launched for it I would be first in line and giddy with excitement!

How about an entire new standalone location? Tunnels, mountains, under the sea (treasure diving, anyone?), I don't care where, I'd buy it.

I'd also happily buy the Volcano if it ever comes to light.

Tobago seems to be pretty unique. The games that are cited as "being like" Tobago are distant cousins, at best. Not that they are bad, in fact, Martinique is pretty good. It just bears a very fleeting resemblance to Tobago.

If you just want a new look, buy a bunch of Heroscape tiles (or anything with a lot of coloured hexes) and build your own Islands. You could also mix up the number of trees and huts included for a different challenge.

I'd love to see varied treasure cards that score in different ways. For example if you discover the head/torso/legs of a statue each is worth 2 points but if you can get all three you get an additional 10 points. Or a treasure that goes about exponentially the more of them you collect.
