Wattsalpoag logoWattsalpoag Games

Back in about 2004, Kris Gould introduced me to the prototype of his game, Nomads of Arabia. The game was great fun and I was particularly taken with Kris's unique way of representing the expanse of the desert by moving strips of board. In 2006, Wattsalpoag Games was born. (Must be a native American name, I thought, but no, the name stands for: "With All This Talent Sitting Around, Let's Put Out A Game!")

Wattsalpoag's first game was Claim It!, a 'push-your-luck' game of gold rush claim-jumping that debuted in October 2006. It was quickly followed by Fruit Fair and the finished Nomads of Arabia. My favourite to date is Jet Set, which appeared in 2008, and the company continues publishing with a clever little dice game, Buccaneer Bones, in 2011 and the clever Switching Tracks in 2015.

Buccaneer Bones (Kris Gould)

Described by the designer as a quick little dice game, which is absolutely correct. The pirate theme helps make this an entertaining 10 minutes of dice rolling. Good fun: 6.00.

A Fistful of Penguins (Jonathan Franklin)

Terrific dice game of collecting zoo animals with different combinations scoring points and penguins being wild. Livid! Highly entertaining: 10.00.

Fruit Fair (Kris Gould)

Lovely little game of collecting fruit with some tactical options that make it more subtle than initially appears. Large, bold artwork makes it visually appealing, too. And it has a raccoon! 15.00.

Jet Set (Kris Gould)

This is a cracking game of establishing airline routes across Europe. Players have to balance income versus vcitory points, but the key decision is when to go for the end game. One of my favourites: 20.00.

Jet Set: Distant Lands (Kris Gould)

A whole bundle of extras for the terrific Jet Set that provide a range of additional challenges. Mix 'n' match as you wish, they're all useful and entertaining: 15.00.

Jet Set Jumbo Jets (Kris Gould)

There are three jumbo jets for each player. They can use them, like the original planes, to establish a route. The difference is that the jumbo can be used several times. They are rather more expensive, though. There are four other expansions in the box, to mix and match with the base game. I particularly like the Charter Flights, which give extra potential flights: 22.00 (18.33 outside the EU)

Nomads of Arabia (Kris Gould)

A fascinating game where players catch and herd animals across the ever-changing sands of Araby. The aim is to sell your animals for a good price without falling off the board: 17.00.
 

Thumbnail of Switching Tracks cover

Switching Tracks (Kris Gould)

Clever railway game where the railway network changes all the time. Players pick up and deliver goods to fulfill contracts, balancing this with improving their train. Very enjoyable: 28.00.
