Or is it more like Source of the Nile, with rare player interaction and more narrative experience? Thanks!

Hi, thanks for this good question. The game is about midway between Source of the Nile (very little player interaction) and a traditional 2-player wargame (total player interaction). Each player is running an expedition of Spaniards, but is in competition with the other expeditions to find and loot the native empires first. The game is partly procedural and partly card driven and the cards offer many opportunities to hurt the other players, often by conferring benefits or actually taking control of native forces. So you always want to be alert to what the other players are doing and the opportunities for card play. Direct combat between opposing forces of Spaniards is not the norm,but does occur (as it did historically), if you can get the colonial governor (a non-player figure) to issue an arrest warrant against another player. Hope this helps and I hope you enjoy the game!

And when, exactly, are we playing Churchill again?
