Fantastic Voyage Congratulations!

I t's 1629, and you have recently been appointed Governor of a New World colony on the wind-swept coast of the province of Mayne. Your Company's investors have charged you with the tasks of selecting colonists and a ship, and safely guiding them across the sea.

At the end of your journey to the New World, your Company's investors will evaluate your performance as Governor. You will be judged on the health and morale of your colonists, the quantity of supplies you bring to the New World, the state of your ship and crew, and the likelihood that your colony will succeed in the future.

Note: "Get More Info" offers helpful historical hints.
Best of luck, and Godspeed!
