What does shipping do in Terra Mystica?
The tile simply gives you 1 more shipping value than you have from your shipping track for that round. So if you haven’t upgraded your shipping at all, so you have 0 shipping, then for that round, you can dig and build in places that you can reach with 1 shipping. It does NOT advance your shipping track.
What is a good score in Terra Mystica?
60 is a respectable score that will often win a game. Scores fluctuate based on the number of player, skill level of everyone, and the tiles that come out. 60-70 will frequently win the game but it is possible to score in the 80+. It also depends on how aggressive the players are too – it can serve to lower scores.
