Description Edit | History

Colonial: Europe's Empires Overseas is a board game about colonial times, from the Renaissance to the Industrial Revolution.

In Colonial players are the rulers of mighty European states and send their ministers to explore the earth, establish missions, ascertain scientific supremacy, and trade in exotic goods. These commodities will have to be exploited on an industrial scale and resold in Europe or in the colonies.

Set against an epic historical backdrop and using a branded Character Card-driven system, conventional dice and custom dice, this fast-paced board game requires careful management, knowledge, diplomacy and a degree of luck to lead to victory in the race for prestige.

5 Colonial variant
House rules: where you pay for explorations in treasury instead of role of dices and hereby reducing the luck factor; consequence for being on the lowest space on the Diplomacy Track in the form of a Trade Embargo; no Prestige directly gained from Explorations, but instead you gain Exploration counters which are managed on an Exploration chart that may lead to gaining Prestige if the player focus on exploration as a game strategy, this furthermore encourage fights for the same territory as it becomes more attractive to “pickpocket” on other player’s explorations; extra encouragement for abolishment of slavery; scale of game depending on number of players, while still using all of the game board; and more.

0 Aid for colour blind players - map resources labelled by colour
Aid for colour blind players to see which resources on the board are which. In this file, each resource is labelled by colour. Actually, this is quite good to show any player how the resources are grouped on the board.

6 Colonial one-page player aid, with focus on player choices
One-page player aid that focuses on the actions players can choose, rather than taking the cards as the starting point. This makes it easier for new players to get into the game. Actions are grouped as on the cards, to make it clear that you can do either this or that, e.g. either expand your influence or foster unrest. (Viceroy/Rebel) THIS IS V2, FIXING TWO ERRORS AND ADDING CLARIFICATION. If you have improvements to suggest, please do so.

23 Colonial Easily Overlooked Rules
I put this together to help me prepare for teaching the game to our group and thought it might prove useful to others. It is not a rules summary but rather collects the small but important points that might be overlooked when playing your first game. It can also serve as a refresher if you have not played for awhile. It does not cover the Nations variant.
