    Description

    In the early 20th-century, rival steamship lines fiercely competed for speed, luxury, and profit. The legendary Blue Riband award was the greatest prize of all, won by the passenger ship with the fastest westbound transatlantic crossing. In this game, you’ll design and operate your own classic transatlantic liner, with one player as Lusitania and the other as Titanic.

    You have two paths to victory: speed or luxury. Focus on one strategy, or try for both at the same time. In the first part of the game, you'll act as a ship designer, competing with your opponent to build the fastest and/or most luxurious ship. You build your ship by placing design cards that can increase your ship's speed, luxury rating, safety level, and profitability.

    In the second part of the game, you'll captain your ship as you and your opponent race across the Atlantic from Southampton, England to New York. Set your speed by deciding how much coal to burn each day, and contend with hazards including icebergs and a U-Boat. Try not to sink or become stranded along the way! The first ship to reach New York wins the Blue Riband award, but you can also win the game by having the most luxurious ship. You earn bonus points through financial profit.

    The game materials are based on historic, public domain photographs and drawings from the early 20th century. The steamship images feature Titanic, Lusitania or their sister ships.
