  • 1 Comment

Beacon Patrol was one of our best-selling games of 2023, so we're over the moon to announce the very first expansion for it... Ships & Shores!

Game Info (for base game):

  • 1-4 players
  • 20-30 min playtime
  • Ages 8+
  • MSP $14.95
  • Designed and Illustrated by Torben Ratzlaff
  • Mechanics: Cooperative, Tile Placement, Grid Movement
  • Releasing June 2024
  • Read the rulebook

The journey to protect the North Sea continues...

As you venture along the coast, you encounter new ships that can aid you in navigating the difficult terrain ahead. Join forces with these other ships and combine your unique abilities to protect the coastlines. But beware, while the ships can assist you in your travels, they require expert hands to operate!

  • Construction Ship: You may refill 1 movement token each time you place a tile.
  • Research Vessel: You may swap up to 2 tiles each turn.
  • Coast Guard Ship: You may spend 1 movement token to move to any Outpost tile or the Beacon Patrol HQ.
  • Hover Craft: You may spend 1 movement token to place a tile connected by land and move onto it, and 2 movement tokens to move 1 space over land.
  • Pilot Ship: You can't move your ship to a tile when you place it unless you spend a movement token. Because of this, you may place tiles that are connected to you by land.
  • Ferry: You may move up to 3 tiles in a straight line when you spend a movement token. You can't swap tiles on your turn.
  • Submarine: You may exchange 1 of your unplayed tiles with the top tile of the discard pile. Discarding tiles does not refill your movement.

In addition to these new powers some of these ships will add new tiles into the game, adding more ways to score as well as new challenges!

Preorders are now open on our website! When you preorder direct with us, we ship your game 2 weeks earlier than the release date so you can enjoy it a little early.

  • I am trying to order the Trek 12 bundle & Beacon Patrol: Ships & Shores (preorder) and every time I try to calculate the shipping to Pontiac, Michigan (zip: 48340-1333), the website tells me the items are not available in my country. I DO live in Thailand and even with a VPN turned on, based in the US, my cart keeps getting emptied. I have an address in the US and plan on picking up these games before July 11th.
    Can you help me with this technical issue?

    If not, can you calculate the shipping of 1) Trek 12 Bundle alone and also for 2) Trek 12 Bundle + Beacon Patrol: Ships & Shores exp?

    Thanks so much,
