Tales of the bountiful harvest at Ridback Bay have traveled far, attracting merchants to the local Wharfside who wish to pay handsomely for your haul. A successful fisherman’s day is not done with the catch; keen business decisions will determine if your Fleet has amassed a rich profit! Merchants have offered generous contracts for the catch, but which offer conveys the greatest benefits? Choose and complete the most lucrative contracts and reap your rewards!
In Wharfside, players fulfill Contracts from local Ridback Bay businesses. Each turn, players will either collect fish from their Fleet at the wharves (by taking cards) or choose to purchase a contract from the market. Contracts provide a bonus while in play, but once they are completed the bonus goes away too!
Wharfside is simple to learn and play, and it is full of interesting and meaningful decisions. With a unique market mechanic, the fun and strategic contract bonus, and a twist on the familiar queue draw mechanic, Wharfside is a new and fun gaming experience for fans of Fleet... and even gamers who have never played Fleet!
