Description Edit | History

Players hold the role of merchants involved in the commerce of spices with the East Indies in the XVII century. Each merchant is a member of a number of different Merchantile Companies: it is therefore important to achieve the best position in the hierarchies at the right time, when the profit from the expedition is divided among them, either by monopoly of a single company or by shares of different companies.

The same cards are used in three ways: to gain the control of a company on a certain harbour, to struggle for the status inside of a company, and finally as trade goods to collect to dispatch orders.

The game is the winner of the Best Unpublished Game contest of Lucca 2006.

The first limited edition has been published in form of a card game.

The current edition has been expanded with more rules and materials to become a board game, containing:

- 1 board
- 60 shipment cards
- 14 harbors
- 18 merchants
- 16 missions
- 5 company rank markers
- 5 summary cards
- pirate’s cove and pirate’s ship
