Canosa is 2-player abstract strategy board game from One Day West Games.
The game is based on Sirens from Greek Mythology. In the mythos, Sirens were often depicted as either mermaids or winged bird-like humans whose hypnotic voices caused sailors to crash their ships and drown. Each player is a Siren competing to capture as many shipwrecked sailors in the open water as then can and return them back to their respective island.
The sailors have a numbered point value underneath the piece representing the Captain, First Mate and Crew. The winner is the player with the most points from captured sailors.
