Soft sand beaches, gently sloping hills, impressive mountains: the landscape of Isle of Skye is breathtaking and fascinates everyone.
In this tile-laying game 2-5 players are the chieftains of 5 famous clans. The players try to build their little kingdoms to score as many points as possible. But in each game only 4 of the 16 scoring cards will be scored. Each game is different and leads to different tactics and strategies.
To have enough money is useful in all games: in each turn the players can buy a tile from another player. The seller determines the price, but to do it wisely is the most interesting part of the game: A high price will lead to wealth, if someone buys this tile, but is there's no buyer, the seller will lose the money spent on this tile. In the end the player with the best kingdom will become the sovereign of the island, not the richest player!
Isle of Skye is a gateway game for the whole family. With a playing time of 45 min, a huge variability and easy rules, it's a perfect game for all players.
