Collect pearls on your hole-filled raft
May 03, 2000

Laguna is something of a puzzle game, kind of like Ricochet Robot. In Laguna, you have to manipulate your raft through reefs and currents, trying to pick up four pearls of your color and put them on the island in the middle of the board.

Your raft has six holes in a 2 by 3 pattern, and between two and four of these holes are covered by marbles (pearls) at any time. If you ever move your raft so that a current arrow can be seen through one of the uncovered holes, your raft must immediately move one space in that direction. And if you ever move so that a reef shows through a hole, your move ends. You may always reposition the marbles on your raft, so the reefs and arrows will be covered as you move, but don't take too long because your moves are timed, and your turn will end when the one minute timer runs out.

There is a lot of puzzle-solving on your turn, as you figure out which way to go, which marbles to reposition, and how best to avoid the reefs and currents, all under a time constraint. Some people I played with got too stressed out by the time and memory constraints, but most of us (myself included) enjoyed the challenge, especially after dropping off marbles and having to sail around to pick up more, with only two marbles left on the raft for covering up reefs. Challenging and fun.
