Maracaibo, the award-winning strategy board game, is coming to Android and iOS in Q4 2020. Spiralburst Studio is working closely with publisher Game’s Up and designer Alexander Pfister to adapt Maracaibo's deep gameplay to mobile devices. Like the board game, 1-4 players sail around the 17th century Caribbean - delivering goods, upgrading their ships, fighting pirates, and more.

Test your strategic thinking in standard gameplay, or explore the storyline of Maracaibo in its swashbuckling campaign mode. The app will also feature an AI “automa” true to the game’s design for solo play. There are many ways to succeed in this game, but players have the power to set the pace - each round can end sooner than you think!
