Man, this game is sooooo close to being awesome! The blind drawing mechanic, with the other sailors on the boat being able to give you minor guidance is awesome. The fine line between when you want to be helpful vs. when you want to bone over the captain is also pretty cool. Even the goods delivery concept is pretty neat.

However, in the end, the elements just don't quite come together in a way that feels quite right. The main problem seems to be that the maps are slightly too difficult, making successful deliveries a little too much on the tedious side, which therefore makes contracts a little too hard to fulfill.

The game also lasts far too long for what it is. This would make a great hour long game. Several hours though, and the gimmick starts to wear a bit.

In the end, this game is just a little more development away from probably being a 7 or an 8.

With some rules tweaks this could be good, but it feels like an uneasy meld between two games at cross purposes - an economic / trading game and a raucous party game. Some very clever ideas, but the execution falls flat.

Great concept of manoevering the ship blindly to the destinations and put sailors for control. But way, way, WAY to long. It should have more concebtrated on that part.

Initial impressions:

Not as fun as I had hoped. There are some serious rules oddities that need clearing up. Basic game is somewhat necessary for a first play (played advanced the first time; disastrous), but terribly boring.

Took a long time with 5 players. Would hope to speed it up in the future.

the navigation-as-drawing-blindfolded mechanic is brilliant. The rest of the game is not only thin, it is actually degenerate. There is a group-loss condition that any player can easily bring about, so anybody who is losing will simply nuke the game for everybody. Played as a perfect coop, the game has some hope.

As printed: rating = 3
As a coop: rating = 6

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.
