"149° West, 17° South", the last words of a dying man. October 2003, the diesel engine is bubbling. A small island at the horizon. Is it Bonobo, the last paradise? The sandy ground is crunching under the trunk of the yacht. A smell of beer and sunoil lays in the air. Your friends are jumping over the railing. There will be a nice place to be.
During a turn, a player either places a tile (with varying plus- and minus-values) or places a pawn onto an intersection, similar to the mechanics in Auf Heller und Pfennig or Isis und Osiris. New in this game are the triangular tiles on the island, which have varying effects that only count when tiles are properly placed around them: doubling, banishment or switching signs. The triangles generate placement restrictions which in turn lead to forced placements and a tactical game regardless of number of players.
There are two different types of scoring. Pawns that sit on intersections that are completely built up with tiles are scored immediately and can be placed anew. Pawns that sit on incomplete intersections have to wait until the end of the game and are only scored then. The scores are determined by the values of the buildings and the triangle tile modifications. Highest score wins. Bonobo Beach is a freeware categorized under games - board and dice tools.
