Sea of Clouds

Sea of Clouds is an upcoming game by Iello that pits players against one another as air pirates. The artwork that has been revealed so far is sparse but gorgeous. From the Sea of Clouds website you can visit the BGG page which features more pictures of this beautiful-looking board game. From the Iello Games website:

“Sea of Clouds is a game that brings you above the clouds to become an infamous air pirate. Face the other pirates aboard your flying ship and show them who’s the best! To do this, board enemy ships, plunder treasure, collect relics, and unearth the best rum.”
