This is probably my favorite Splotter, and, not coincidentally, feels the most "economic" to me. Why wouldn't I want to play it?

Can I Bring It? Yep.

Our "feature" game of the second night was Indonesia, our second Splotter of the day. This was a four player game, and we had all played once before. Therefore, we considered this to be our first "real" game. Similar to FCM, this one keeps me thinking about it days later. There is no way around it... I got smoked. You know how with Splotter games, sometimes one player gets way behind an hour before the game ends and there's nothing they can do? That was me in this game. Was I ticked at myself for that bonehead merger I announced that ended up crushing me and setting up my opponent? Of course. Was I totally ready to play this game again? Absolutely. There is no denying that the Operations phase can get a bit... "tedious"? (Avoiding use of the "F" word.) However, I have since played this one a third time, and Operations was much more smooth with increased experience. There is nothing like this game and it will always have a spot in my collection.

The map is hard to sort out and this game dragged on forever in my one play. I was told more players was actually shorter. That was decidedly not the case and this game was four or five hours of my life that I'll never get back.

The concept was OK, but just fell flat for me because the playing experience was so awful that I don't even want to give it another go.

Giocone gestionale splotter (Food Chain)(Si producono merci aprendo compagnie, si spediscono fondando compagnie navali). Le compagnie dei giocatori possono essere fuse in compagnie piu' grosse, i turni sono suddivisi in fasi in pieno stile splotter, meccanica di asta presente. Parecchi ne parlano come il migliore gestionale economico in circolazione. Solito stile dei giochi splotter (pensate a Food Chain), turni divisi in fasi, gioco estremamente punitivo se si sbaglia, per esperti.

Judging by the smirk on the face of the Sultan of Solo, the businessman from North Sumatra has just made a mistake. And a costly one at that, too. He has paid way too much for merging his rubber company with the Sultan’s extensive rubber plantations: there are no ships in the area to transport the rubber to the booming cities of Java. And the Sultan is now dripping in cash — he can bribe city authorities so that his ships will gain preferential access to those ports where they are competing. Or he might invest in building an oil imperium. But wait — what’s that young fellow over there up to? Buying all the shipping lines? That might change the outlook … considerably, in fact … let’s see…

Indonesia is a game in which two to five players build up an economy, trying to acquire the most money. Players acquire production companies, which produce goods (rice, spices, microwaveable meals, rubber, and oil), and shipping companies, which deliver goods to cities. As cities receive goods, they grow, increasing their demands. Production companies earn money for each good delivered to a city, up to the city's capacity, but they must pay shipping companies for the distance traveled, even if they end up losing money. Players can research advantages, like greater shipping capacity or the ability to merge companies, possibly stealing ownership of lucrative plantations or shipping routes by buying out other players.

Players keep their money hidden, trying to accumulate the most by the end of the third era. When only one type of a company is left, an era ends. New eras bring new cities, companies, and types of goods. At the end of the third era, the player with the most money wins. However, money earned from the last round of operations (selling/shipping goods) counts double, so it can be important to control the timing.

While I generally ship promptly, I have chronic health problems that occasionally flare and lead to shipping delays. Please take this into account when deciding to put my games on your wantlist.

I think this is Splotter's best game by a wide margin, and it's extremely tactical. It's really hard to maintain a long-term strategy through the violent game state changes the mergers round creates.

Also, the R&D phase creates a lot of tough tactical decisions: the first player to choose can create a cascade of decision changes. Very reactive, and one of my all-time favorite games.

Plays in 2017 - 3

Indonesia hit the table for the first time this year and while the rules are simple the gameplay is deep and engaging. This is one where I think we still aren't playing optimally and if we played with someone who actually knew what they were doing we would get crushed. Mergers are definitely important but I don't think we've been using them to their full potential, maybe I'll figure all that out next year.

Late entry that I forgot about...

In this case, it's not the game that's bad, it's the components for the second edition. Wooden markers that are way too big for the map, and a mounted map that easily warps. Just terrible.

But, I really enjoy the game itself, so I ended up printing out and laminating one of the fan-made maps, and buying a bunch of cubes for it.

I collected a neat-looking package from the post office this morning.

Inside was a note from Santa:


And behind that was this:


Thank you very much Davis! I'm very pleased - you have generously started off my Splotter collection nicely and I look forward to playing it!
