The most fun and the most excitement I've had in a board game in a long time. Our first game was with 5 and came down to 'sudden death', where all four goods were valued at 20. Great components make a good thing even better.

Everyone that I have introduced this game to really enjoys it and wants to play it again. Granted it is on the lighter side, but it really is a lot of fun. The components are what really drew me to this game. The plastic coins are very cool and the wooden boats are just gorgeous. This game is alot more fun if you have a Dice Tower to use with it. There is alot of dice rolling. I built my own dice tower pretty much for this game and it was well worth it!

Rated this up to a 9 after my third play. I'll never turn down a play of this. Almost no downtime, with bidding, gambling and a tiny bit of stock holding. It's amazingly fun. It doesn't hurt that I won either.

Elegant, simple and with a factor of randomness to make it unpredictably fun. Many choices and a slightly complicated score system that contributes to making each game different than the others.

Update:
Why is this wonderful game still OOP?!?!

Update 2:
Looks like a reprint is coming but the wonderful wooden boats are not going to be in it...sigh.

"Craps in Boardgame form", and a gambler's delight. Being that I like a bit of gambling myself, I really, really enjoy this one. The unpredictibility makes for great fun, and the secret objectives of not completely knowing what your opponents have adds to it. This is a gem of a game, and one that I'm glad to have in my collection.

Some of the most fun I've had playing a game. Definitely one of my favorites. Everyone I teach loves it because of the "oh my gosh! that just happened!" moments.

Manila is an extremely enjoyable, if somewhat luck-dependent game, very similar to craps in many respects. Every group I've played it with has had a blast--it's got a short learning curve, great bits, and the suspense is thick enough to cut with a knife.

Heartily recommended to pretty much anyone.

For the kind of game this is. . . WOW! I had a blast. There was actual cheering going on during the game.

Played some more over the past few months of 06. This is my favorite Eurogame. It seems to be the right length. The players seem to have a great time. The rules are easy enough to teach with little difficulty. This is a great game.

Production: Incredible production, with Tonga-Bonga-rivalling money, solid wooden accomplices and boats, brilliant, vivid artwork.

Play: Becoming the harbor master appears to be a devastatingly superior position, which gains one more money, making one more likely to win the position of harbor master. And aside from the two pilots, who have minimal influence, all other placement decisions are merely speculative of the outcome of rolling 3d6. Those two major elements aside, I still really enjoy the game, especially because there are so many ways to have an accomplice produce profit, but each at different risk. Better with more players. (3+2+4) (2 plays)

Gorgeous component. Fun factor high as hell! Good mix of actionning and betting. More strategy than people think even if luck as an influence. The Harbour master role is critical. It's what allow you to control the game. It's also important to let other players "play" for you by shipping the good you need. A real gem!
