Isle of Sky expansion for Spiel 2017


Isle of Skye: Journeyman expands the 2016 Kennerspiel des Jahres winner from Andreas Pelikan and Alexander Pfister with new player boards that track “your progress in terms of strength, prosperity and popularity”, with new scoring tiles that reflect these traits and a journeyman pawn that travels the islands to activate tiles.

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.

I do like the base game which is a good filler (if you play it with people knowing already the rules & mechanics) or gateway game (not too complex, explained quickly but with enough dept that you have some “ah if I had known” effect when scoring your game). I’ll certainly add it to my “wishlist” for 2017/2018.
