played with Bill, Sam and Kit.

In Macao you roll colored dice in order to get colored action cubes dispersed around your action wheel. You then use the available cubes to perform actions on the game board. Collect goods, move your ship, sell goods at ports, etc.

So this game was not well received. It was very challenging to get the correct colored cubes on the correct spot of your action wheel. At least two members of the group declared the game to be broken! I personally don't believe it was that bad. I really wanted to play the game because people in the forums kept comparing this game with Amerigo. I really like Amerigo so I wanted to see what this game was about. Now I have and I would rather play Amerigo.

At the end of the 17th century, Macao – the mysterious port city on the southern coast of China – is a Portuguese trading post in the Far East. The players take on the role of energetic and daring adventurers. Many exciting tasks and challenges await the players, whether they are a captain, governor, craftsman, or scholar. Those who chose the wisest course of action and have the best overall strategy will earn the most prestige at the end.

The Adventures of a Solo Astronaut

Version: Dutch First Edition.

I've sleeved all of the cards with color print outs of the English cards. It also includes a color print out of the English rule book.

Condition: Like New

The components are in excellent like new condition (unbelievably I never actually got the game to the table). The box has a tiny indentation on the front cover, as if another heavier game might have been set upon it in shipping, otherwise the box is like new.



The tiny dent:


Color print out of English rules:


Sleeved English color paste ups (sleeved using the original cards as the card backs, note that some of the paste ups are slightly smaller than others due to a zoom error when I printed them. This should cause any problems and since nothing is glued it can be easily fixed):


The only thing I haven't pasted up are the player boards but you can find english translations of these in the file section:


Delivery: Free shipping to anywhere in the U.S. and $15 towards international shipping.

Staring Bid: $30

Luckily I was able to get in on a game of Macao. (They were almost done setting it up when I arrived.) Thanks for including me, folks! One of the Felds I had not yet checked off the list. Still need to try Bruges and Bora Bora.

Troy had by far the "longest road" and got lots of points from having a long path through the cities where you get goods. He also had a killer turn or two toward the end where he did a lot of stuff. I thought he had it, but I lucked out and got a set of three baronesses that helped me pull ahead at the end. Overall there was a lot of leapfrogging and shuffling around who was in first throughout the game, which I really liked.

Thanks for teaching, Denise!

Interest Level: High
# Players: 2-4
Game Length: 50-100 minutes
Weight: 3.13/5
Price:
Rules: https://boardgamegeek.com/file/download/5w5ug6k999/Macao_Eng...

Desc: Macao lasts twelve rounds, and in each round players select one new card from a display specific to that round, two of which were revealed at the start of the game and others that were revealed only at the start of the round. The deck of 96 cards includes all sorts of special abilities, with the more powerful actions costing more resources to put into play.

One player rolls six different-colored dice, then each player selects two of those dice (possibly the same ones chosen by opponents), then places cubes equal to the number and color of the two dice on a personalized "ship's wheel." For example, if a player chooses the blue die that shows a 5, he places five blue cubes on the ship's wheel position five spots away from the current round. (A player can never claim more cubes than the number of remaining rounds).

Players rotate their ship's wheels each round, then use the cubes available to them in that round to perform various actions: activating cards selected in that round or earlier rounds, buying city quarters and collecting the goods located there, moving that player's ship around Europe to deliver those goods, acquiring gold coins, taking special actions with card previously activated, and advancing on a turn order track.

Players score points by delivering goods, paying gold coins, using the powers on their cards, and building in Macao. Whoever has the most points at the end of twelve rounds wins.

My Thoughts: I've been wanting to try this game for a while. I've liked most of this designer's games.

A friend came over for some gaming on Monday. We started with Macao, one of my favorite Feld games. A tricky juggling act of building cards with special abilities, shipping goods, and trying to get the action cubes to do what you want when the available cubes are heavily random.

I managed a close win on this one, getting income going early and being able to pay taxes a lot.
