Far to the north, in a remote winter wonderland, a small river cruise company offers exotic excursions like polar bear safaris, reindeer tours, ice fishing and more.
You work as a tour guide and try to lure tourists onto your guide boats for spectacular excursions.
This is a game where you have to plan ahead, look for good combos and activate the right powers at the right time.
Riverside is another type of role-playing game: The game comes with a modular game board, which makes up the route of the game. On a river cruise ship, everyone follows the same route, but you can take your tourists on different tours. You can plan ahead, but beware that the dice may force you to change your plans.
You begin each round by rolling dice in a common pool. Simultaneously, each player chooses a die of a specific color (without physically taking it) and fills seats on the corresponding guide boat on their own player sheet. Each time they complete a row of seats, they have sold a group ticket of the corresponding color (excursion). The longer the row, the more points they get. Moreover, this ticket is valid for the rest of the game: Each time they go on an excursion to a village of that color, they take this group with them to earn even more points. The player with the most points wins the game.
Within each guide boat, you have to get a higher and higher score, so where do you start?
