This rating is for the original card game. The newer board game version is a complete waste of shelf space since it does not add anything to the game.

I usually dig these "cards with multiple uses" schemes, and this game is no exception. Gets a bit AP prone in the end, though.

Does not work very well with five players.

Quite simple, fun, maybe not too deep but rather interesting when you need to choose between complete a shipment or advance in the company.

Comment based on the second edition (Board game, not card game). A nice set-collection game, with very nice graphics and good components. It may seem a little too much luck-based at first, but after a few games you'll be able to understand the subtle mechanics and it'll become clear how to manage the various expeditions. This is a game very difficult to appreciate by one or two sessions.

Odd game that feels like you have little control. Things might get better with more plays or with 3/5 instead of 4.

Tried only with 5 players and didn't seem to work so well, but the mechanics are nice and I may be willing to play it again with less players.

The card design may be better, since the character cards are definitely too similiar (same background colour? Very weird decision).

Although the aspect of vying for control of the company was somewhat interesting, I found it taking place occasionally, and only when someone had amassed enough cards in hand to attempt this possibly costly gamble. The use of flags as majority control for a port was innovative, but as the game went on it quickly became repetitive and tedious. Nice concepts, marred by poor implementation.

Yet another game of set collection. Played it once with 5 players. With 5 players the influence of a single player seems to be too weak. May be better with fewer players. Also the graphics are nice but confusing.

The company politics aspect is terrific, and balances well with the missions aspect. But they both feel slightly short-changed by the speed with which the game runs - as there is no real strategic path here, you are reduced at times to a wait-and-hope approach. And games in which you can set-up a subsequent player in the hope they will help you can backfire in some groups.
