Concordia: Balearica features the balearic islands of MAIORICA (Mallorca), MINORICA (Menorca), EBUSUS (Ibiza), and FRUMENTARIA (Formentera). The opposite side of this board has the CYPRUS map from Concordia: Venus (expansion).
This expansion is intended for players who own the Concordia Base Game. If you own Concordia Venus Base Game, The Concordia Venus Board Game: Balearica And Italia Map Expansion includes the all new content from this expansion without duplicating a map, and also has the Italia map from the Concordia Base Game.
Each player starts with two ships already at sea. There is no capital city to start from. Land colonists are built only later in the game, but can switch their position between the islands.
As an extra, Concordia: Balearica comes with a fishmarket. The fishmarket may be combined not only with the new BALEARICA map, but also used as a variant together with the base game or any other CONCORDIA map.
As a new commodity, fish replaces the ordinary bonus units you usually collect when playing your Prefect. The bonus is doubled up to 2 fish in provinces which have failed to produce in the last round. Sell your fish on a separate fishmarket, where you can get either goods, cash, or special actions in return. This way the fishmarket offers an extra layer of planning ahead, and new challenges for the experienced CONCORDIA player.
With Venus, the goddess of love and togetherness, Concordia brings together two partners to compete against one or two other teams. Mutual understanding and coordinated planning are essential to succeed as a harmonious couple.
The game also offers a new variant for 2 to 5 single players. With additional material for a sixth player and new game plans Concordia Venus can be combined with the basic game and all previous extensions (including salsa).
This version is a boxed expansion similar to Concordia Salsa. A standalone version of Concordia Venus is also available including all the materials from this expansions as well as enough base game components to play without a copy of the original Concordia.
