Cover of Vasco da Gama: the explorer points the way for an expedition of sailing shipsVasco da Gama

Following in the footsteps (sailing log?) of the eponymous explorer, players set up expeditions to Africa and India to find new trading opportunities. The further their expedition goes, the more points they score, but the less income they get. Thus, players take the shorter journeys first to build up the funds to make the longer ones.

There are a lot of decisions to be made as players outfit their expeditions, aiming to do so as efficiently as possible to give them an edge over their competitors. In particular, timing your actions may let you do them for free but only after other players have done so.

Published in 2009, Vasco da Gama took second place in the Deutscher Spiele Preis awards.

For 2-4 players, aged 12+, playing time 90 minutes: 35.00 (29.17 outside the EU)
