The sea is vast, and there’s always more to discover. As swashbucklers and soldiers on the high seas, you never know what lies ahead, beyond the horizon. New factions, treasure, and creatures fill these waters!
Rumors have been making their way through the port and local tavern: tales of a military regime more fast and vicious than the Bluefin; a rebellion with absurd but effective tactics; tall tales of a gigantic monster with a never-ending body; and a fleet of pirate ships robbing and pillaging with abandon. What to believe?
Ahoy: New Horizons adds four new factions to the asymmetric seas of Ahoy: the Blackfish Brigade, the Shellfire Rebellion, the Leviathan, and the Coral Cap Pirates.
Ahoy: New Horizons includes four new factions: the hulking Blackfish Brigade, the sprightly Shellfire Rebellion, the fearsome Leviathan, and the cunning Coral Cap Pirates. By adding these new factions, you can play Ahoy with over 30 unique faction combinations!
Setting up a game with the new factions is easy: pick one blue Military faction, one yellow Rebel faction, and up to two of the other factions. You're ready for a fresh scenario with an ocean of new strategies to explore.
The Blackfish Brigade commands a powerful whale pod that surges across the sea, leaving a path of destruction in their wake. This alternate faction to the Bluefin Squadron moves as quick as a surging wave and hits just as hard.
Plan your actions carefully to fill your Whale Pod, then use Whale Song to deploy your Patrols across the ocean. Once your Patrols are out, your flagship can Surge across the map, moving quickly while mopping up any meddlesome Comrades in their path.
Willing to risk life and limb for their cause, the Shellfire Rebellion catapults their Comrades into position to defend their homeland. Take to the seas with this alternate faction for the Mollusk Union, and have a shell of a time.
Build and position your Launchers to send your Comrades to as many Islands as possible. But keep in mind, the Range you can launch them changes every round. Use your deck of Plan cards to outwit and outgun the oppressors.
The fearsome Leviathan snakes around the map, spreading chaos and destruction as it seeks its next meal. Add this terrifying monster to replace a Smuggler in 3- and 4-player games.
Your hunger is unending. Strike Patrols and Devour Comrades to grow larger, faster, and stronger. Evolve new abilities and defend yourself from those who seek to gain Fame by slaying you. Don't get tangled, though—you can never have two parts of your massive body in the same space.
The Coral Cap Pirates seek out a boatload of new sailors to join them for a good time robbin', raidin', and paradin'. Add these pirates to replace a Smuggler in 3- and 4-player games.
With the charming Captain Rugosa, you'll travel the seas and Hire new Crew to captain your mighty Frigates. Each Frigate is uniquely equipped, offering new ways to gain Fame. Command your ever-growing fleet with Parade, and Enlist extra Crew to outfit your Frigates for even more Fame. But Sail carefully, since damaged Frigates will cost you at the end of the game.
