Holy Cow! Yes, in India they have them. But other than that, this is hands-down the best all-around game of 2005. Others might sneak in to that rank through other categories, but not in family game status. This game is loads of fun! Nothing to take seriously, but for a good hour of laugh-out loud enjoyment.

7+ plays (5p x 2, 4p x4, 3p x1) - I love it. One of my favorites. The gambling and investment, mixed teamwork and competition (like Colossal Arena, Long Shot), and fast paced mechanics produce bottled lightning game juice for spirited play -- it's what I enjoy so much. Some of that may come from game companions similarly inspired. Cursing and drinking, waving arms... Superlative with 5 players.

This is definitively one of the best games in my collection. During Christmas-New Year 2011-2012 my father, my two brothers in law and I staid up all night with this game in a few occasions.

Este es en definitiva uno de los mejores juegos en mi colección. La navidad y año nuevo de 2011-2012 my papá, mis cuñados y yo nos quedamos jugando toda la noche más de un par de veces.

Good combination of gambling and Euro-game, somehow reminds me about Modern Art, even though I like Manila a lot more than Modern Art.

Bought from a friend.

Fun and simple. I like how I can use math in a game to find the odds. I also like how I never do it and I just wing it. Would definitely play again and hopefully I don't get screwed on the first round.

Rating based on one 5 player game, which was a riot of improbable events. That game I'd rate a 9 or 10, but can't believe that every game is as entertaining as that one.

Fun, luck-driven gambling game. Not too many tough choices, but enough easy choices to make it fun. Bidding on harbormaster position rescues the game really. Try to play with people willing to be the pirate. Good house rule allows pirate to board a full boat and kick out another player's apprentice.

Neat and fun game. Played twice, once with 5 players and once with 4, and thought it worked well with both. It does take a bit too long, though.

This is a tense, cutthroat little game that totally overcomes its association with a publisher renowned for kids' games. In fact, I don't see this as much of a kids' game at all. Players are trying to collect the most money over three rounds, either by delivering goods, owning stock, predicting the placement of ships, or by pirating the ships to collect their bounty. The higher the payoff, the higher the risk, and the players have to decide which direction to take each turn to ensure that they collect the most money. The best actions are ones that give you money by taking money from other players, but good luck getting that to happen. More often than not, players are going to be playing to protect their investments. I'm not surprised that this is a game designed by the same guy who did Container.
