Adrift in uncharted waters, six people share a tiny lifeboat. As the supplies run low, they discover that some barrels are filled with jewels and art treasures instead of water or hardtack. Greed mixes with love and hatred as the passengers take sides...
Lifeboat is a fast-paced card game of intrigue and survival. Players vie for the highest score when the boat reaches land — a seemingly simple matter of surviving with the most treasure. But each player has a secret love and a secret enemy among the passengers, and no one knows when landfall will occur.
Will you help row, and thus have a hand in guiding the boat's course? Try to shove your way into the quartermaster's seat? Start a fight to grab some loot? Or just bide your time until you can nudge your enemy overboard into shark-infested waters?

A sheet of labels designed for A4-sized sticker paper, to make stickers approx. 14mm in diameter.
They are intended to be used to mark Rowing and Fighting on cards, and then flip over to damage counters (if the damage applies).
This sheet allows you to track how many times each person has gone overboard, gotten thirsty, and how many navigation cards have gone by. The amount of squares are the max possible for each character so as the game goes by you can see the changes of things happening to you and change your strategy based upon that.
Print, then cut in half for two sheets.
Lifeboat Player Aids
These player aids are for the game Lifeboat by Jeff Siadek (version by Gorilla Games).
The game which is playable as is by "shifting" cards to mark who is attacking or defending, and mentally tracking fights rowing, thirst, and overboards.
However, I think this board with the addition of space with tokens to track fight attackers/defenders, who has fought, or rowed, how many thirsts, overboard, wounds, and out-cold/death should make the game more playable.
The boards are modular and using the main 3 support the standard 6 player game, with the two "mini" boards the 1st and 2nd expansions (7 and 8 players.)
If you use less players you can use just the bow and stern for 4 players or the bow, stern, and one mini board for 5 (although you will have to consult...
