In Roads & Boats, each player builds a civilization over a long period of time, like in many other games. Unlike most games, however, the emphasis is not on warfare, population growth, city or statebuilding, but on logistics, or rather: on transport.

Each player starts the game with three donkeys, a pile of wooden boards, a number of stones and two geese. With these few resources, you try to build such diverse things as woodcutters, roads, boats, mines, a stock exchange... but beware! There is no concept of territory in this game: you cannot own land, nor buildings, so the things you build can be used by any other player...

The game can be played by two to four players, but it can also be used as a one-person puzzle. Material for a fifth and a sixth player is available in the &Cetera expansion.

The basic game contains a rule and scenario book in English and Germand, a pile of hexagonal terrain tiles, 120 means of transportation from donkeys to steamers (wooden pieces), 75 walls (little woorden rods), 4 research boards, 28 discovery stones (glass), a wonder of the world with 193 wonder stones (cardboard), 18 mines + bags, 115 factories (cardboard), 600 goods (cardboard) and several other parts.

The fourth edition will be very similar to the third edition except: the counters will be printed on both sides (gold and iron will be black on the backside); the stickers have been upgraded to last longer; and, hopefully, we will have a foldable plate instead of a rolled-up one.
