Gondola is live! Over 50% funded on day 2! We'd greatly appreciate any support!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bigkidgames/gondola-upg...

It's the middle of the eighteenth century and it is once again time for the Regata Storica di Venezia. All of Venice is eager for the festivities to begin! For hundreds of years this historical event has held races of different kinds of boats, the most popular being the Gondolini Regatta, the Gondola Race! In this challenging race the gondoliers take to the canals with the cheers of local supporters and visitors alike to see who is the greatest of their number. Great spoils and fame await the winner...and the coveted title of Canal Master!



In Gondola, each player becomes a gondolier racing to be the first through five checkpoints hidden in the maze of canals throughout Venice in an attempt to win the coveted title of Canal Master!

Gondola is a tile-placement game of Venetian canal racing for 2-5 players. All the information you need to play is on the tiles!

The game begins with the designated start tiles already in play which reveal only part of the gondola racecourse. Players then take turns placing additional canal tiles over the course of play, revealing more and more of the winding lagoon. Players are never quite sure what the route will be and where it will take them. The tiles are designed to work together, so you end up building a beautiful map of Venice along the way!

Use cunning strategy and pivotal selections to outrace your opponents and become Canal Master. The winner is the player to reach 5 checkpoints first. So grab your remo and prepare to push your way to victory!

After considerable research I found this to be a sound game that will hit my table often. Whether you are a first time gamer, or game every Friday night, the fun of a "gondola race" through Venice is just plain fun. Nicely designed parts and pieces only add to the experience. Check it out!!!

This game looks great, and I'm really hoping it gets funded. I like the mix of mechanics, and I think it will appeal to a really broad spectrum of ages and gaming experience. I'm anticipating taking it to my regular game night group events, as well as to family reunion/holiday events, with equal success.

If I'd to 'pitch' this I'd say:

You like Carcassonne? Well, instead of lazy meeples that just sit there as you build the board, why not race around Venice in Gondolas as you build canals?

The first player to reach five check-points wins as you place your tiles to construct the track whilst racing cool Gondoleeples!

The catch? Your hand size of tiles is equal to the number of remaining check-points to complete. So you will fatigue over time and have to be smarter with your remaining tiles as the race progresses.

2-5 player fun from casual gamers to strategists working several moves ahead. Back it now - come on, I really want this to be made!
