In the twilight of the 16th century, migrants flocked to the colonies of the New World. Your goal: to create the most prosperous colony by producing the resources needed to establish maritime trade routes, train your scientists to acquire new special abilities, send your Conquistadors on missions to recover gold, and much more! Build buildings by placing tiles on your board and then activate them by rolling the dice. The dice represent your workers, each one activating an entire row or column of buildings.

You'll need to carefully consider their placement and choose your dice. A wide range of actions and special abilities (randomly selected during setup) will be available on each of your turns, ensuring that you always have a fresh set of dice to choose from. Santa Maria is a Eurogame of medium complexity with intricate mechanics, skillfully mixing dice draft, placement, strategic game engine construction, and direct interaction with your opponents. Luck will have little place in your games!
