TRAILS OF TUCANA (Matagot/Aporta Games, 1 to 8 players, ages 8 and up, 15-30 minutes; $21.99)
I have always been intrigued by exploration, finding the unknown and/or discovering some long lost civilization. These adventures — whether told in novels or on film — have always excited and captivated me. So, it is no surprise that boardgames that have an exploration theme are bound to catch my attention. Trails of Tucana by designers Eilif Svensson and Kristian Ostby has this enticing exploration theme, as players attempt to blaze trails in order to connect the villages on an island to some amazing sites and discoveries long hidden from the eyes of man.
