Cacao and Chocolatl Board Game
$19.50 – $34.50
Cacao, according to their publisher Z-Man Games, is a “tile-placement game in which you’re the chief of a tribe which you must guide to prosperity through the cultivation and trade of the “Fruit of the Gods.” Beginning with a single plantation and market, two to four players fill in the jungle using individual worker tile decks. Place your workers next to the jungle features and they will go about their business. Workers next to plantations produce cacao plants, while those adjacent to markets sell those plants for gold. More plantations and markets appear as the jungle expands, opening even more options for enriching your tribe. Make the most efficient use of your workers, earn the most gold, and win the game!”
From our point of view, it’s a little bit Carcassonne, and a little bit of chocolate, and whole lot of fun, especially with the expansion. The Chocolatl Expansion adds Chocolate Kitchens and Chocolate Markets, irrigation to grow more cacao, and huts that personalize your way to win!
