Blue Lagoon Tournament

WHEN: Saturday May 11, 2019
WHERE: Prairie Game eXpo
DURATION: 120 minutes

There are 2 rounds to the tournament. They consist of:

- 1 Championship Round (1 table of 4 people)

Tournament Format

The Preliminary Round will consist of 4 boards with 4 players. Players will play 1 game. The winner of each game will qualify for the Championship Round. If the tournament does not have 4 tables, the winner of each game will qualify, plus the highest scoring player will move to the Championship Round as needed.

PRIZES: Tournament winner receives a copy of Blue Lagoon

Time limit: No game will go longer than 60 minutes. Final determination will be based on number of victory points total among games played in a round.

If we do not make our 16 player roster we will make amendments on the fly.

Blue Lagoon is an area control and set collection game in which players manage a group of settlers spreading out over the islands of a newly discovered archipelago.

The game is played over two phases (the exploration phase followed by the settlement phase). Over the course of both phases, you will expand your presence on the board by adding one new token each turn (either a settler or a village token). The goal is to collect the resources scattered over the map by placing your tokens on top of them. In the first phase, you can place a new token anywhere you like, as long as it is touching either the lagoon OR one of your previously played tokens. In the second phase, the board is cleared, except for the villages, and now you can only expand from the villages you played in the first phase! At the end of both phases, players score points for the sets of resources they collected. Most points wins.
