Welcome to the world of Flotilla! It is just like our world today except wetter. The polar ice caps have melted, flooding the world and forcing mankind to adapt or drown. All that is left of society is the cobbled-together flotilla. It is here that we meet you, intrepid captain. Would you care to join the flotilla work from here or do you prefer the open sea and the treasures it holds? We are expecting big things from you, in fact, we are depending on it!
Flotilla is a deck/engine builder for 3-5 players that puts you in the Captain’s chair of a fleet of vessels in a setting straight out of Waterworld. You will be competing with rival captains to gain the most victory points by collecting various artifacts of the lost age as well as completing quests to garner the favor of the flotilla’s guilds. Now just because the world is in dire straits does not mean you don’t have some choices to make.
From the very start of the game you can choose to stay a free agent, scavenging for supplies in the depths of the ocean, or you can choose to abandon sea life and link up to the flotilla. You can join the flotilla at any time in the game, but once you do, you can never return to the sea. This choice, and whether you take it early, late, or never will determine how you experience Flotilla and if you emerge victorious.
