BGWS 038 – Lifeboats

Lifeboats is a light negotiation game about sailors trying to make it ashore in leaky lifeboats. (15:09)

In Lifeboats, players have escaped a sinking ship onto a series of lifeboats. These lifeboats have not been well-maintained, so have sprung leaks. Players are maneuvering for the best boats and try to avoid being tossed overboard when the boat springs a new leak. This is done through negotiation and voting, but players have precious little to offer in negotiations.
