You Must Build a Boat

You are a sailor and explorer, searching the world for treasure.

In adventures screens, you match tiles to defeat monsters (sword tiles and staff tiles) and unlock treasure chests (key tiles). As you complete quests and collect loot and allies, you build a bigger boat. In the boat screen, you visit different rooms of the boat, where you can use gold to upgrade your weapons, tools, and magic items.

When You Must Build a Boat is inhibited, lavalings replace some of the tiles, making it harder to find a match.


  • Matching shield tiles gives you some protection from monsters
  • Visit all the rooms and people on your boat to find ways to strengthen your powers and build your crew
  • You win when you collect the East Wind, but you can go through the entire game as many times as you want
