Isle of Skye is one of the most beautiful places in the world, with soft sand beaches, gently sloping hills, and impressive mountains. The landscape of Isle of Skye is breathtaking and fascinates everyone.
In the tile-laying game Isle of Skye: From Chieftain to King, 2-5 players are chieftains of famous clans and want to build their little kingdoms to score as many points as possible — but in each game only four of the sixteen scoring cards will be scored.
Thanks to the scoring cards, each game is different and leads to different tactics and strategies, but having enough money is useful no matter what else is going on. Managing that money can be tricky, though. Each turn, each player places two area tiles in front of them and sets the selling price for the tiles. Setting a high price is great, but only so long as someone actually pays the price because if no one opts to buy, then the seller must buy the tiles at the price they previously requested.
In the end, the player with the best kingdom — and not the richest player — becomes the sovereign of the island.

It elevates the mechanics that became famous mainly through Carcassonne (strategic placement of tiles), with the other effects of each piece combined with the scoring rules of the parchments and the alternation defined at the beginning of the game for each round. Add the auction and you get a fluid, elegant, rather strategic game that keeps players engaged even when there is some delay in individual decision making.

Isle of Skye I think is a bit of a sleeper hit of 15. A bit of Carcassonne, with bidding and hidden information. Along with Lanterns and Cacao, the best 3 tile laying games in a long time. Great from 2 to 5 players, with different strategy's depending on player count. Best thing is the variable scoring tiles, with only 4 of the 16 used each game, and even the order they are drawn makes a difference. Highly recommended.
