THE PERFECT GAME (if it wasn't so long for what it is).

The perfect hybrid between the Euro strategy game and dexterity game. The world needs more of these hybrids. This combination yields even more features that Euro games need to feature more:

* Teamwork, as players may (or may not) help you direct your blind drawing tasks
* Bidding for contracts (where players bid for a right to do a task, and lose a substantial amount of points for failing to do that task)
* Gorgeous artwork based on historical maps

So much fun! Can you beat sailing (with the equivalent of a magic marker) around a map *with your eyes closed,* guided only by your friends' voices? I think not. This game is awesome. The drawback is that the rules suck. Even so, once you've figured out how to play it's so great that I think it deserves a high rating despite the terribly-written-rules frustration that we experienced while setting it up.

Played the basic game in Essen. A good game where the blind navigation made for a lot of laughs. Hillarious! The basic game had a somewhat party game feel to it, but I think the advanced game will be more strategic.

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.

Requires quite a bit of thought despite the fact that plotting the ship courses usually devolves into giggle fits. Small number of order cards could hamper replayability, and I need to re-do both the order cards and the spice chits to make it much clearer which spice goes with which order card! Positive first impression, though, despite unfriendly artistic design.

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.

Good game. Co-op, yet competitive. Drawing blindfolded to pick up items. Then betting over filling contracts with those items. Fun.

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.
