Explore the world, make some money
In the fifteenth century, Portuguese explorers set off to
establish colonies in South America, Africa and Asia, and to
gain control of valuable goods in the process. Navegador
is the latest game in the "rondel" series that also
includes Antike, Imperial and Hamburgum. In it,
you can explore the world, found profitable colonies, and manipulate
market prices back home.
Navegador is an economic game with an exploration aspect;
unlike Imperial or Antike, players do not engage
in direct conflict. Instead, the conflict takes place in the
marketplace and in the race to be the first to take control of
a profitable colony. Since the bonuses that players pick up during
play will determine what aspects of the game will net them the
most points in the end, several strategies are valid.
ADVANCEMENT TIE-BREAKERS: In Multiple Entry, Single
Elimination events for multi-player games, players possibly qualify
for Single Elimination play in the second round by winning any
of up to four preliminary Heats. Occasionally, players may advance
wihout winning a heat. Players can enter one or more Heats without
limit. All events for most multi-player games consist of three
rounds; an opening Round consisting of two to four Preliminary
Heats, a semifinal and a Final. The semifinal round will advance
a predesignated optimum number of players to fill the second
round; i.e., 25 players for a 5-player game, 16 players for a
4-player game, etc. but in all cases will advance no more than
half of all players which participated in the preliminaries.
If insufficient players advance to warrant a semifinal round,
the scheduled semifinal will instead become the Final.
