My wife and I love this game. It is one of the few games that is just as fun with 2 as it is with 4. It is well balanced and always feels like a different game each time we play.

You take on the role of a ship captain from one of four nations. You can either be a merchant by buying and selling goods or you can be the pirate (marauder)by attacking NPCs or other players.

This is balanced in that my wife always plays the merchant and I typically play the pirate. We both have won playing our strategies within these roles.

The new game feel comes from the event cards that change aspects of the game. They either create storms, start wars (or end them), bring out NPC captains etc. Plus the game comes with plenty of different captains to play. I have yet to play a captain twice.

An overall great game and I would love to see more for this game!!

The game is well put together and has nice pieces. It was easy to pick up and learn. But this is more of a luck based party game than a strategy game.

I would suggest this more for starting gamers or kids. Power gamers and some avid gamers will probably have a hard time getting into this game since there is little to no strategy.

Overall this is a great game. Great map designs, instructions that are easy to pick up and auction system that adds a bit of strategy.

I will say that this game is a solid 4 – 6 player game. The mechanics and strategy of the game really come to life with this amount of players. A 3 player game is just as fun but isn’t as strategic as a game with more people.

Playing the game with just 2 players is fun in its own right but you won’t get much of the strategy that game has built in. This aspect of the game is better suited for teaching the basics of the game.

I am not a big Co-op game player. Games like Pandemic etc just aren’t that appealing to me. That is until I played this game. The cooperation aspect of this game was well designed. The “characters” were well designed. The rules were easy to get through so we could start playing. This is the first co-op game I have wanted to play more than once. Can’t wait to play again.

A good game for 3 or more people. It is a good Saturday or Sunday type of game. It does play similar to Railroad Tycoon but is much cheaper!!! Overall a good game to spend the day playing.
