Observation, memory and speed will be necessary to fill your boat. You see the whale's white belly rippling on the surface of the water, so you will only be able to pick up the WHITE pearls. Conversely, if you see its Black back, you will only be able to catch the BLACK pearls. And watch out for sharks!

The first player who will have completed his boat with 4 WHITE and / or BLACK pearls will be the winner!

How did I create the game?

LAGOONA is somewhat related to EXPLORERS, the very old board game version of INFRAGA JONES, the ancestor of the famous SQUAD SEVEN. With EXPLORERS I have always had a technical realization problem, namely, how to find a way to turn the tiles quickly and precisely.

Upon discovering an old Selecta game (German publisher of MARE POLARE), I fell in ecstasy at the semi-spherical wooden domes that this game used.

So that gave me the idea to use them as seashells that you flip over with a hammer to find out if they contain a WHITE or BLACK pearl.

LAGOONA was born!
