Isle of Skye: Journeyman, is the first big expansion to Isle of Skye from designers Alexander Pfister and Andreas Pelikan.
Becoming a king is hard, but being a king is even harder. You need warriors to protect your kingdom, merchants to keep your treasury liquid and heralds which proclaim your popularity across the kingdom. Luckily, your best mate has agreed to take over the hard graft so that you concentrate becoming a glory chieftain.
This new expansion contains new personal player boards indicating your progress in terms of strength, prosperity and popularity. As each progress step has requirements to be met, the personal player boards affect tile selling and placement. However, in order to claim the next level of development and gain potential rewards, it’s not sufficient to place the corresponding tiles only. A new pawn (the journeyman) needs to travel the kingdom and “activate” the tiles. In addition, 4 new scoring tiles are contained respecting the new challenges of Isle of Skye: Journeyman.
4 New scoring tiles
8 New landscape tiles
7 Gold coins
5 “50/100” VP markers
In each of the 5 player colors: 1 progress board,
6 markers, 9 bonus tiles, 1 Journeyman pawn
