Old Salt Multi Team Events
A large group game mode for the naval strategy game Old Salt. This is a large group tactical game that can be run from start to finish in under 3 hours!
Work with a teammate to secure victory. Use your small fleet of ships to sail into positions of strength, fire cannons, and seize islands out from under from the enemy.
Our next multi team event is this September 14th at 6pm. Our host is Arkham Games in Ankeny, Iowa.
Multi Team Overview
Players work in teams of two to earn points by damaging ships and seizing islands. Once a team reaches 50 points, players finish out the round and count up their points. The team with the most points at the end of the round wins!
Throughout the game, players unlock rewards they can use in the game to boost their effectiveness. For each reward not used, the player will receive points at the end of the game.
A Player's Turn
Phase I - Active Player Pt. 1
During this phase, the active player may cash in previously earned rewards and sail each of their ships up to 3 tiles.
If sailing over an awakened tradewind, gain up to an additional 2 tiles of sail range.
During this phase, opponents who wish to attack may flip their wooden block vertically.
Phase II - Non Active Players Attack
All opponents who flipped their wooden block vertically during phase I will now attack going in clockwise order.
Players attacking in this phase must have targets and coin amounts ready to go. Otherwise they forfeit their opportunity attack.
Phase III - Active Player Pt. 2
During this phase, the active player may seize islands or attack opponent ships.
It is during this phase that a player may use ship type abilities such as the Hazard's Detonation ability or the Zealot's Free Shot ability.
Opponent players still get their return fire shot if applicable.
Critical Elements of the Board
Compared to the original 14 island, 3 tradewind Old Salt board; the multi team board has some important and notable differences.
Small Islands - There are 36 small islands scattered throughout the playing area. Depending on the number of players, there may be ocean tokens to cover up some islands.
The Mega Island - There are two mega islands on the board, each towards the middle of the playing area.
The Rocks - Sailing over rocks will damage your ship 1 health point per rock tile sailed over. These rocks do not block line of sight.
The Zone of Power - There are two zones on the board, each towards the outer edge. Sailing a ship into a Zone Of Power will teleport the ship to the other Zone at the end of the round.
There is no cost to participating in our Multi Team events. We think this is an amazing way to show new players what Old Salt the game has to offer and run these events completely free.
Despite it being completely free to participate, we do offer rewards for the top performing teams.
Game Store Gift Card
When we run multi team events at a game store, the top two placing teams of the event will receive a gift card to the host location. The more teams that participate, the greater the gift card amount.
The highest scoring team will receive two metal Old Salt coins.
We will keep track of who receives these metal coins for a raffle drawing after our twelfth Multi Team event.
The selected winner will get to design their own faction and ship type for Old Salt. Never Board Games will create and deliever the newly designed faction and ship tokens to the winner.
