New Bedford is a game for 2 to 4 players, ages 10 and up.


Set in the mid-1800s, the age of whaling, New Bedford gives 2 to 4 players the chance to build the Massachusetts town of the same name into a thriving community. Gather resources to add buildings with new actions and launch ships to go whaling. Go out longest for the best choice, but wait too long and the whales become harder to catch. And don’t forget to pay your crew when ships return! Carefully balance time management and timing to earn the most points in this medium-weight worker placement and resource management game.
