Listing Detail Tabs

Set in the mid-1800s, the golden age of whaling, New Bedford gives
you the chance to build the Massachusetts town of the same name into a thriving
whaling community

Gather resources to add buildings with new actions and launch ships to go
whaling. Go out longest for the best choice, but wait too long and the whales
become harder to catch. And don't forget to pay your crew when ships return!
Carefully balance time management and timing to earn the most points in this
medium-weight worker placement and resource management game.

In more detail, over twelve rounds players take turns placing two workers per
round, one at a time. The town board and whaling board contain basic game
actions: taking goods (food, wood, brick), selling goods, building buildings,
docking ships, and launching ships. These actions can be used multiple times per
round, with the first player to do so in a round receiving a bonus or more goods
or reducing the number of goods paid.

Most buildings add extra action spaces with new actions, combined actions,
and more powerful versions of basic actions. You own whatever you build, with
others needing to pay to use them and you earning points from them at
game's end.
