When I first heard of the basic mechanism with this game I was very skeptical, but after playing I had a *lot* of fun with it!

A fun game indeed. Every true gamer should try this at least once. Don't play for winning though. Play for the experience! .... and beating Amsterdam
ofcourse ...
One of those games where failure is fun.

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.

Nothing quite like it out there. Drawing on the dry-erase boards with just one-word navigation commands is quite fun (although clearly many things are out of your control due to it as well). Well worth a try and very cheap for a Splotter game!

This game is out of control. The exploration bit is genius. It is everything Die Hanse wishes it were. But, then there is the whole market game that brings everthing to a new level. After getting a few plays in you get to realise that this game can be particularly nasty. Deals that go sour, and uncooperative captains make new and innovative ways to gut your friends.

Still, the game is a hoot. I've only played the advanced game, but I suspect that it is a bit more of what I like. I've incorporated Amsterdam into the Advanced game and recommend using four flipped cards rather than three.

Rating up a point after second 5 player advanced game, which great improvement over 3 player.

Nice unique system for voyaging and a number of subtle strategies hidden in the system. Can be a bit long, and pace does not accelerate through the game.

Potential for a lot of fun with right group.

Basic game only. Even madder than I expected from reading the rules some time back. A semi-coop, semi-party game from Splotter. Hoping to play again, soon.

Play basic rules. I wish I could find people to play this with. But, it doesn't play well as a competitive game. To many people then want to crash the boat AND those that don't want to crash the boat get yelled at by competitive people for crashing.

I'm not sure that it does work as a game but it's fun. It's way too long for what it is.

I really enjoyed the "sailing" aspect of this game. I hope others give it a chance. It can be a good time.

One play. This has fun mechanics and I'm sure we'll play it again, but not without house rules.

1. The negotiations took too long and often left one person out. We think that a sand timer that could be started by anyone anytime could really impact the game positively.

Our first game took 3 hours and then we called it, although if we had played as quickly as we did at the end from the start it would only have been about 2 hours. Still, I think 60-90 minutes advertised is very optimistic. The game needs people to really be on task and draw one ship after another with no downtime to have any hope of making those numbers.

2. The start player marker should move around the circle in some way. Having the same person start every round does not make sense. I've been thinking that it should go forward and then back on the second part of the placement phase (so that the last player gets two in a row and the first player also gets the last move. Then the marker should move around the table before the next turn.

Still, I liked the game quite a bit. Boat movement is very original. Solid 7 with tweaks. 6 without some ways of making people play quickly.
