Description Edit | History

In 1884, the major European imperialist powers – Great Britain, France, Germany and Belgium – were busy struggling to get a piece of the cake that was colonial Africa. At first they sent missions dedicated to exploration, but this quickly changed to vying for favorable concessions, treaties, and even settlements. This race for supremacy and the desire to be the first to establish a foothold in Africa provoked an endless series of confrontations and conflicts.

In Expedition: Congo River 1884 – the first title in Rivero's "Expedition"-series, which will take place all around the world – a paddle-wheeler steamboat is about to leave Leopoldville (now Kinshasa) and sail up the Congo River bound for the remote village of Kindu in the heart of deepest Africa. While the travelers aboard the steamer are of many different nationalities and professions, they all share the same spirit of adventure. Each player controls a group of these travelers and must compete with their opponents to take command of the colonial stations found at each stop along the steamer's trip upstream. Players gain victory points for each station under their command. The player with most points at the end of the game wins.

Description in Spanish:

En el año 1884 las principales potencias imperialistas europeas, Gran Bretaña, Francia, Alemania y Bélgica se afanaban por conseguir un pedazo del pastel colonial de África, enviando inicialmente misiones para explorar para luego obtener concesiones comerciales, tratados y asentamientos coloniales. Esta carrera por intentar llegar antes y conseguir el mejor reparto supuso una serie interminable de enfrentamientos y conflictos.

Un barco fluvial está a punto de zarpar del muelle de Leopoldville (hoy Kinshasa) y remontará el curso del río Congo con destino a la remota aldea de Kindu, en el corazón del África profunda. En el vapor viajan pasajeros de varias nacionalidades y profesiones diversas, pero todos comparten el mismo espíritu aventurero.
Cada jugador controla un grupo de pasajeros y deben competir entre sí por colocar uno de sus hombres al frente de una estación colonial a lo largo de las diferentes escalas (15) que hace el vapor en su recorrido río arriba. Por cada personaje que se consiga colocar como jefe de estación se obtendrán puntos de victoria en función del valor de la estación indicado en el tablero. Ganará el jugador que obtenga más puntos de victoria al final del recorrido.

NB: The prototype artwork was done by Spanish artist Belasias.
