An ocean of adventure awaits you in Anchors Aweigh from Z-Man Games!
Load your ship with everything you’ll need, then weigh anchor. Discover items, trade goods, and complete contracts to earn treasure. Grapple with fierce pirates, earning rewards if you defeat them. Will you earn the most treasure?
The wind rushes, carrying the smell of salt water and ruffling your hair. The crew bustles around you, hauling up crates of supplies and organizing them in the cargo hold. You hear the crash of the waves against the side of the ship. The captain calls for the anchor to be hauled up. It’s time to set sail!
Every adventure requires supplies. You’ll need everything from shovels and rope to a compass and sword. Prepare for your adventure by quickly grabbing tiles representing these pieces of equipment (known as assets), filling your ship’s cargo hold.
Pirates lurk on the high seas, hoping to catch sailors unaware and unprepared. As players continue their adventure, they will come across pirate cards. Each player can choose to fight or flee. If you choose to fight the pirates you must satisfy the supply requirements on the card or else you’ll pay a penalty. If you can satisfy the pirates you’ll reap the benefits, gaining treasure or valuable cargo items.
