Manifest is a game of cargo ships, sea scoundrels, and nautical mayhem. Win points for your shipping company by completing Contracts. Pick up certain goods or passengers at their source, then navigate the high seas to deliver them to a port where they are wanted. With a choice of private or public contracts and multi-purpose action cards, there are many paths to victory, and some “take that” options to make sure your opponents don’t steal the limelight.

Manifest can be played in two ways: Standard and Expert. The Standard game is the introductory and family game. The Expert game builds on this, with a deck-buying and building mechanism replacing the blind card draw, thus adding another level of strategy that confident players may prefer.

Be the first player to complete Contracts to the point threshold (it varies by the number of players). When any player triggers the threshold, every other player gets one more turn to try and beat the score of the person who triggered the last round.

  1. Craig

    I played a trial version of this game, so I’m not sure of the final dynamics. That said, we went through three plays on a rainy Saturday and it was definitely re-playable. Things seemed quite finely balanced in the trial rules (and perhaps the final version is even more balanced), with some interesting twists in the expert variant. 3.5-4 our of 5.

    one of the members in our little gaming club brought this game along and we are hooked. Love it
