From Uberplay:

We just received these rule variations from Thomas Rauscher, the designer of Tongiaki.

Rule Extensions for 2 Players

1. Blind Passengers:

Before starting the game, choose four beaches on Tonga and place on those beaches one boat of each of the non-participating colors. Then start the game as usual.

2. Native Tribes:

Collect 15 ships from the non-participating colors (4 ships of blue, red & green and 3 ships of yellow for example) and mix them up and randomly form a queue of the ships on the table. Each time an island is discovered, the active player may take a ship from the end of the queue and place it anywhere on that island. After placing the ship, landing proceeds as normal.

Note: One can choose between both options or play both options together. (1) brings in four new ships while (2) brings in 15 ships. So (1) still feels like the usual two-player-game while (2), and much more (1) + (2) makes the game much more colorful and makes it feel much more like the three- or four-player game.


Rule Extensions for 6 Players

The two players who sit opposite of each other play as a team, so there are three groups of two players playing against each other. All rules apply as normally with scoring being the only exception.

At the end of the game, each group is scored as a whole - which means the scores for an island are given to the partners as a team, regardless if both are present on the island or if just one of them is present.

Thank you Thomas for sending these rules which make a great 3, 4 and 5 player game work very well for 2 and 6 players!

I'm not sure I understand this. Wouldn't those four beaches just become filled with non-participating pieces, leaving the plaers with two empty ones to work with, and, wound't their be more nonparticipating colours than there are moorings?

Only add a total of 4 new boats (one each of the non-playing colors) to all of Tonga. That will be one non-playing boat on 4 of the beaches, not 4 boats per beach.

I take it you cannot "Found a Royal Island" if there is a non-participating color ship there?
