Set within the titular region within Okanagan Wine Country, in Naramata, the players assume the roles of tour bus operators ferrying visitors to the various wineries nuzzled within the ten-minute drive along the Naramata “Bench.”
Players will attempt to satisfy as many customers as they can through a day of operations, all the while earning prestige (equating currency), which can be spent to upgrade operations or influence the wineries throughout a tour route. Tourists are gratified through tastings, TrailBeads, photos of the beautiful vistas, along with wine pairings and purchases.
Naramata is a medium-complexity board game involving point-to-point movement, set collection, time tracks, and variable player powers.
Players will move across a game board representing an exaggerated depiction of the Naramata region, stopping at wineries to complete various actions to satisfy the tourists attached to their vehicle.
