At RinCon 2018, James Ernest (Cheapass Games, Crab Fragment Labs) started working out the core concept of this simple economic game for 2-5 players. Now it all comes full circle – he’ll be teaching the full game at this year's nautical-themed event!

In Shipwrights of Marino, players are building airships using resources from an ever-changing marketplace: Metal, Wood, Crew, Food, Rope, and Canvas. Prices for these resources fluctuate constantly, and your goal is to buy them cheaply, but finish your projects quickly. Along with basic resources, you can also invest in shipping expeditions that bring more resources home. Investors get the best deals on new deliveries, but sometimes those ships bring back almost nothing! Every contract earns money and launches a ship, which may grant a special effect or ability. Collect the right mix of abilities, and your shipyard can work faster, racing ahead of the competition.
