Personally, I think this is a great tile laying game. It invites careful planning and forced backstabbing. There is just no other way to win!

Fun mix between a racing game and a tile laying game. I think this is better than the reviews here head you to believe

I seem to like this better than most people. I find it short but right to the point.

Cape Horn is a fairly fast and light game. The two greatest virtues it has for me is that it has a different feel than any other Euro I have played and that it allows for some deliciously nasty play.

Una corsa tra gli oceani dove l'aria di mare si sente tutta! La gara di barche a chi sà gestire meglio i venti e le proprie risorse nautiche funziona completamente! Veloce e divertente!!

Good game of wind-tile placement. Easy game to learn, too. You can help yourself and hinder your neighbor. With 2 alternative ways to win, the race for the finish can be very close.

Dry but fun, can have a high "screw your opponent" aspect.

You'd think a sailing race would be a nice and gentle game of gaining subtle advantage. Not this baby. This is the cape my man and it's amazing how many adverse winds will suddenly befall you. A turn is to play wind tiles to the board (the sea around Cape Horn) which give a choice of directions and advise how many spaces you'll move. Obviously you play good tiles where you're about to land to get big moves going in the right direction next turn. However this game is nothing but pussage from start to end, playing wind tiles where other players are about to go so they have to spend 3 precious sail points (you get 1 a turn) to crawl ahead to the next space where there might be a more favourable move on. This makes the game a ballet of plan and counterplan. It's best with 3 players, ok with 4. With more players, the control slips. It can have a catch the leader problem if players aren't careful (and vindictive!). It's themed quite well with boats tacking back and forward, finding the good wind, and it finishes in the right length. There's not a lot of tension, it's just a game of planning good plays and overcoming the pus moves as efficiently as possible.

In this game it's good to plan 2 or 3 moves ahead, but you also need to be able to zig when you'd planned to zag. There's also a heavy dose of screw your opponents and curse your luck so be warned.

okay tile laying race game. Leader can be hard to hose for more than a single turn - so don't get too far back!

Luck of the draw and a kingmaker problem keep me from rating this game any higher, but it's still a nice filler.

Good game, not high on the excitment meter. Sometimes player ends up being "kingmaker".

A vastly underrated racing game giving rise to clever strategies and tile placement. Don't underestimate the power of saving the sailing points for a rainy day. They can win you the game if your opponents are sleeping. I should play this more often.
