I can't believe this game has earned such a low rating. It is great! What fun. What great components. HABA is pricey, but I am so glad I bought this little gem.

The boats and cannons work perfectly with the bellows. The cannon idea is especially clever, and well made. The bellows are large and easy to use. Even the placement of the harbor and alignment of the island was well thought out. (ships must cross in front of each other in order to reach the distant harbor. This blocks shots and gives a chance to ram the other ship.)

When playing with younger children, we will probably cut the treasure hunt down to 2, or maybe even one.

Blowing the ships around with the bellows and firing the cannon at the ship are just too fun, for both my 6 year old and myself. This rating could possibly be even higher as we play it more.

My rating is a 6 but my 6yo would likely rate this an 8 or 9. Simple game with a that uses bellows to move and shoot. Fun for the youngsters...not that challenging for adults but worth it to play with your young ones.

Silly game that's good to play with the kids. For adults, the novelty of the game wears too quickly.

Rated by my 7-year old son, who loved the idea of the game, just not the execution. The "cannon balls" jammed too often to be fun and the material the bellows were made of was a bit too stiff for him to get maximum "blow" effect. The ships were a bit too easy to capsize. In theory, a great game for every young boy who dreams of high seas adventure. In reality, it just didn't come off as well as it could have. Personally, I agree with him. I would have preferred a crokinole version of the same - less finicky. Hmmm...maybe I'll make one myself!

The concept of using hand-bellows to blow sailing ships and to shoot cannons is brilliant. The execution is imperfect. It's still somewhat amusing, but mostly disappointing.

E.g. The best way to propel your ship is to blow on the hull, not the sail. The best way to fire your cannon is to have the cannonball hanging out the end and barely staying inside the barrel. These things undermine the tactile feel of the mechanics, making it a mellow experience.

However, once you learn the quirks is is still amusing. Unfortunately, it is too simple for adults and too unintuitive for kids. It's not terrible, but it doesn't shine like I hoped it would.

I love the concept of this game, but it didn't play out in game play with my 5 year old. She really struggled using the rubber blowers and eventually we just had her blow the ships using her mouth. Then the cannons were impossible for her. It'll make a nice toy though.
