In 1845, Sir John Franklin led an expedition to discover the route that would connect the Pacific and Atlantic. When he disappeared, explorers from Britain and America set out to find the missing voyage and succeed where Franklin failed - by finding the Northwest Passage. Carefully place exploration tiles, maneuver around ice floes, discover islands and send your crews on sleds across solid land. Be careful - as the seasons progress, the North gets colder and the last thing you want is to find yourself stuck in the ice, losing crews and equipment. Be the first to discover the route to the Pacific to earn the Prestige you need to bring victory for your team!
