Reading Rulebooks

S2E2: Reading Rulebooks – Ahoy

Reading Rulebooks is a podcast dedicated to reading through rulebooks and teaching games! In this podcast I directly read the rulebook as well as discuss the game and try to clear up potential areas of confusion.

Check out the Game section of MCG for more episodes of the Reading Rulebooks Podcast or check out the MCG YouTube Channel for Videos!

This week we are going to cover the rules for Ahoy. Ahoy is a game designed by Greg Loring-Albright and is illustrated by Kyle Ferrin. The game is published by Leder Games.
