Archipelago tells the tale of the majestic era of global discovery from 1492 (with the discoveries of Christopher Columbus) up to 1797 (the colonization of Tahiti). Each player portrays an explorer commissioned by a European nation to discover, colonize, and exploit the archipelagos. These colonial vanguards are expected to carry themselves with diplomacy, meeting the needs of the locals while reaping the fruits of the New World. They must respect the archipelagos and their indigenous peoples, lest the natives grow restless and revolt ` leading to a war of independence!
