Lewis & Clark is a game about the famous explorers’ journey across North America and the players race along the route from St Louis to Fort Clatsop (on the Pacific coast) which is a sequence of river and mountain spaces. The winner is the first player to make camp at Fort Clatsop.
Players have characters (cards) and Indians (meeple) which they use to take actions which earn resources and, ultimately, advance their scout. Each player starts with a board showing several boats (and they can gain more) which is where they store their resources and Indians. The boats limit how much a player can carry but they have another important role/effect too when it comes to making camp.
On their turn, a player can ‘make camp’ which moves their camp marker to where their scout is, plus they pick-up all their played cards back into their hand. However, before placing the camp marker, the scout must first move backwards a number of spaces based on how many unplayed cards the player has, plus the resources/Indians in their boats. Each boat specifically carries resources or Indians – some carry items without penalty, some have a flat rate cost regardless of contents, and some have a penalty for every item in the boat.
